ELAC Study VacationsLanguage SchoolElac Study Vacations is a small, but growing English Language School. It was established in 1991 in Eastbourne and initially ran a family stay course here. In 2000 Elac opened its first residential summer school at Eastbourne College.
Though Elac has grown as an organisation in recent years, the company still has the virtues of a small family-run business: a personal service, a high standard of care and welfare, attention to detail and a focus on quality. We are on the UK government list of approved English Language providers and we are also fully accredited by the British Council.
Each summer we provide residential and family stay courses for around 3,500 students from Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Poland, Russia, Turkey, China and Japan. We also have developing links in a number of other countries, and the international aspect of our courses is important.
