For 40 years, ELC has been a leader in providing quality programs and superb service.
Our placement testing includes a multiple choice grammar section, a writing section, and an interview with the Director of Courses. The three separate components of the test allow us to make accurate placements for each of the student’s classes, using ELC’s multi-level placement system.
Each ELC center publishes a monthly activities and excursion calendar that students receive on their first day of classes. Weekday activities include outings in and around Santa Barbara, including wineries, Solvang, the Santa Barbara Missions, and the Santa Barbara Zoo. Weekend trips are planned for neighboring cities and points of interest.
Students are chaperoned by either an ELC staff member or a professional tour guide on all activities. ELC has partnered with over 40 universities/colleges that offer our students conditional acceptance.
