Project Mali

ESL - Charity -
We sponsor a school in Timbuktu, Mali, sharing our resources and logistical experience. In one of the world’s most remote locations, it is a challenge to get essential supplies through to the classrooms. Our support for the school includes classroom resources such as desks, chairs, pens, books and learning materials for the children.


Clément Duay, in charge of Facility Management at ESL

"I’ve been working on this project for 8 months. The biggest challenge has been finding the best way to transport the container to such a remote location as Timbuktu."

"Each week I have collected donations from the staff. This money has been invested in “student kits” for the school in Mali. We have also collected more than 40 boxes of books, some printers, computers, televisions and hi-fi equipment."

"In my role as Facilities Manager, I work on different challenges like reduce and recycling waste, communicating with the staff worldwide, monitoring our carbon offsetting. We have many new projects starting. We want to become as green as we can."

"ESL is a really great company. The best quality of ESL is the atmosphere. Everybody is at the same level and you don't even feel the difference of status."

"To be everyday with young people is very comfortable and pleasant for me (I'm 21) It's a kind of study environment (like university) but at work. We have a staff event each week, which is usually pretty cool. The days go quickly here!"

"ESL offers the possibility to change from a department to another. The management is really open-minded and confident; they don't hesitate to give you responsibilities that nobody would have given to you because you maybe don't have the experience. I’ve learnt a lot working here that's why I choose to study economy (50%) and stay working at ESL (50%)."

TESTIMONIALS

María del Pilar López Oliete

My stay at TLG was one of the best decisions I took in a very long time. It was very enriching, because I was surrounded by classmates and friends of different cultures, who are now almost my family. I learned many things and I partially overcame my fear of speaking English. I have to thank my teachers, who were very patient, funny and humanly extraordinary – in particular Malika, who helped us when we had all kind of problems, in or outside the school.

My stay in Cork (more specifically, in Bishop), in August, was very good. As the days passed, all my fears about the language started fading away. I was lucky enough to find a very dynamic teacher. In the morning, we used to focus on grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension, in a serious but also relaxed atmosphere – at my own pace.
As a beginner, I can say that – little by little, thanks to my teacher’s patience – I became more fluent and could finally communicate with her and her family. I am now able to conduct a conversation and understand 80% of it – I am still a bit slow, of course. With my teacher, I discovered beautiful spots in the region (parks, castles, restaurants, beaches). She made me love her country.

Now my only wish is to go back there, because those 2 weeks went too fast! And there are so many things I would like to dig a bit more into, to immerse myself deeper in this unique country!

My experience at France Langue exceeded all my expectations. Courses are very dynamic and focus on oral communication most of the time. The vocabulary we learn in school is very useful and topical, and we can use it on a daily basis during our stay in Paris. Workshops help us to analyse specific topics we have learned in class and to practise the language.
Teachers are very caring, dynamic and close to their students.
In 3 weeks, I did some impressive improvements. The accommodation is amazing; I live with a lovely and welcoming Parisian woman. The flat is located in a central and quiet area.
As I said, France Langue exceeded all my expectations, to the point that I would like to extend my stay in Paris!
