Student Testimonials

Parice Then Lih Yiing


I studied at ELS Subang Jaya from 2nd January 2014 to 30th May 2014, after which I transferred to Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) at USA to complete my Engineering Bachelor degree.

I had made a good choice by choosing to study English at ELS because I have improved so much in my English proficiency, especially in my speaking skills. In addition, the teachers at ELS are professional and very patient. I am extremely grateful to ELS for opening the doors of opportunity for me to develop my English proficiency and further my studies at USA.
