    All the teachers I met convinced me; both in terms of motivation and on a professional level (methodology, teaching, choice of topics and support outside of class, etc.).

  • Luiz, Brazil says:

    I like studying with Elfe because it’s in the centre of Paris, the teachers are great and there is a real exchange with other cultures!
