Elite’s service commitment is simple: we strive to make our programs stimulating, authentic and relevant to today’s needs. Our learning modules are designed to help you to build your creative and critical thinking skills, including improving your overall confidence to communicate with others in English.  We utilize a communicative approach in all our language programs and we are committed to delivering results for our students. All of our learning and assessment materials continue to be developed in-house to reflect the demanding conditions of Hong Kong life.

All of Elite’s teaching staffs are native English speakers. Our trainers come from the U.K, America, Australia and Canada. Trainers at Elite possess the following: a TEFL, TESOL, or CELTA and have at least two years of business teaching experience. Our trainers have a solid grasp of the common errors made by Chinese secondary learners of English and they understand how to train Hong Kong staff to be better communicators in English.

We have conducted many courses for companies falling under the following Hong Kong industries: retail, manufacturing & merchandising, I.T, banking & finance, shipping, hotels & serviced apartments, accounting and entertainment.  The types of training conducted over the years have included business writing, oral communication (including role play & presentations) and multi-skills training, together with specialist skills training for senior management and executives.

 

Why the English standard of the university graduated students are continuously declining nowadays? The reason is that most students only focus on exam tips instead of a full-scale study, which has a huge impact on their exam results at universities and performances at work even after graduation. In view of this, Elite English carried out "Complete English TM"concept, leading all the students to understand the real purpose of learning. Getting to be well prepared for their further learning and employment at work. Meanwhile, this can consolidate their English foundation and guide them to achieve success.

Gradually established trusting business relationships with: IDP, the world’s largest IELTS examination; and education agency, ISSC, a top 3 ranked Hong Kong education agency and other overseas education agencies.
