Coinciding with its 20th anniversary, ESL launched the brand new ESL Language Travel Awards
. This recognition, whose finalists and winners were announced during the gala night of the ESL International Workshop in Montreux, rewards those schools that had an outstanding performance during the previous year.
ESL also launched the new ESL Certificates of Excellence
, which were assigned to schools based solely on the ratings and reviews received by students in 2016. The Certificate of Excellence badge will be posted on the page of the awarded schools for the entire year.
