Free evaluation of your language level
The basic academic service we propose consists of integrating a class which corresponds to the level of language knowledge of each participant. This is vital in order to feel at ease and to progress in a consistent manner. It is also what will make the course effective and interesting. Consequently, all of the schools offer an evaluation test during the first day. ESL also proposes this service during a consultancy interview, if you so wish. It is very useful when you wish to take a certificate preparation course for which it is necessary to have a specified minimum level.
Free flights & special offers
Thanks to the professional relationships we maintain within the travel industry, we regularly offer free flights to some locations. At any time of the year, book a 12-, 24- or 36-week language course in a number of destinations in Europe and the USA, and get free return flights offered by ESL. New special offers
are added to our website throughout the year so visit regularly and contact us to find out more.
Free exam cancellation insurance
Ideally and for practical reasons, it is necessary to enrol for a language study stay in advance (flight, visa, accommodation). Numerous students find themselves held up, whilst awaiting exam results, in carrying out the steps in time. Conscious of this situation, we offer a cancellation insurance free of charge which allows you to put your plans in place without worrying about the consequences in case of failure. In other words, you can enrol without risk for a language study stay and if, unfortunately, you are no longer in a position to travel abroad because of your studies (failure of exams), we retain no fees.
ESL promotions and special offers
Throughout the year, ESL offers special discounts on your language stay. Take advantage of our exclusive promotions by booking your programme in advance or with somebody else (the destination/school doesn’t have to be the same). Check regularly our website
