ELC Santa Barbara

(183 ratings)

If you choose ELC Santa Barbara as your destination to study English, be prepared to never want to leave!  Formerly one of California’s best kept secrets, Santa Barbara is known for its lovely climate and incredible landscape of white sandy beaches and palm trees.

Just ten minutes on foot to the beach and two blocks from State Street, ELC has an excellent location in the center of Santa Barbara. The school is housed in a typical Santa Barbara colonial style building on a street lined with palm trees.  The great location means the school is easily accessible on foot or by bicycle.

The school has a variety of courses, and is also an authorized Cambridge examination center, making it a great option for taking an exam preparation course.

The ELC team has a program of activities which can be participated in as a part of the course price or at a reduced price. All ELC teachers hold a university degree as a minimum qualification.
