Why ELI?

Founded in 2017, ELI Schools is a leading English language training company with three year-round schools in Ireland. We offer a range of programmes that have the potential to truly transform the lives of our students. In 2021 we were nominated by industry peers and partners among the Best New English Language Schools in Europe.  

Welcome to ELI Schools

We hire friendly and enthusiastic people who love what they do and give them the tools and training to deliver the best experiences for our students. Our teachers are all university graduates with recognised teaching qualifications and significant teaching experience both in Ireland and abroad. Our support teams come from a variety of backgrounds, and most have travelled, so they know it is the simple things that make the difference. We pride ourselves on delivering first class service in every encounter. We look forward to welcoming you to Ireland.


Led by our Student Experience team you will be invited to participate in social events, activities, and workshops to get to know the city and to meet likeminded students who are on the same journey. Experienced students are encouraged to share their stories and tips on finding jobs, long-term accommodation, or even just good places to eat and fun things to do. Our teachers inspire a sense of community in the classroom by encouraging communication and participation.


We thrive on diversity. We seek to create a global community of learners from different countries, lifestyles, cultures, and traditions all united by a common goal to transform their lives through English. We hope by accepting diversity and embracing the opportunity our students will make international connections and friendships that will last a lifetime.
