ELS Language Centres


ELS Language Centres opened its first centre in Washington D.C in 1961. Over the half century since its opening, ELS has helped more than a million students from over 140 countries master English in order to pursue their dreams of entering universities, having more successful careers and becoming "citizens of the world."

ELS Language Centres Malaysia is a franchise of the US-based ELS Language Centres. Established in 1990, ELS Malaysia has since grown to having 6 purpose-built English language training centres throughout Malaysia, namely Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Bintang, Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Johor Bahru and Penang.

Why ELS?

International Recognition
140 countries with nearly 100 centres worldwide. The ELS CIEP Proficiency Levels are the third most widely accepted standardised proof of English qualification in the US - with more than 600 universities and colleges recognising its Advanced Levels.

ELS only very recently celebrated its 50th anniversary in the US and its 20th year in Malaysia. Having taught more than 2 million students around the world, ELS is a trusted institution among its peers and has established countless linkages with institutions of higher education.

Building on its years of experience, ELS has developed its own unique curriculum, textbooks and language-learning software to help students master English. Our proven methods and resources have enabled ELS students to effectively enhance their English in the shortest time possible. Successful students will also be more academically prepared for their university studies as the ELS curriculum prepares them in various aspects of university assignments and projects.

Expertise and Personnel
Our professional, experienced and caring staff are dedicated to helping students progress in their English studies, and attain their higher educational and career goals. At ELS, we guide students every step of the way, from the time they enrol to the time they graduate.

Teaching Excellence
All ELS Instructors are qualified by education, training and experience. They are made up of Malaysians as well as native-speakers such as the British, Canadians, Australians and Americans. All ELS instructors are also required to take the ELS Teacher Certification Programme (TCP) that equips them with the specific tools, skills and methods to teach English the ELS way. Every ELS centre has an Academic Director who ensures the academic and teaching quality of the instructors.

Student Services
Learning English is an experience and sometimes can be a challenge. ELS makes the experience exhilarating and fun by making life easier for its students through its wide offerings of student services. From university programme counselling to group excursions to exciting destinations around Malaysia, students learn English outside the classroom and develop fond memories of their time spent at ELS.

Technology in Education
ELS is a strong advocate of technology in teaching and learning. It incorporates technology in several aspects of the student's English learning experience and encourages its instructors to use technology in their daily lessons. This culture better prepares students for a technologically-driven future.
