ELI Málaga is an ELI franchise.  Our centre in Teatinos opened in August 2011.  We pride ourselves on providing excellent care for our students, in a professional but friendly environment, not only in the classroom but in reception and around the school.  As a new school in the area, our reputation is paramount and we strive to provide quality in everything we do.

ELI Teatinos:  The school is located in a ground-floor unit of a residential block.  It has three good sized classrooms, all light and airy and fully-equipped with interactive whiteboards (ebeam).  We take good care of the school and it is a very pleasant, bright working environment.  Teatinos is a modern and developing suburb of Málaga city, around 20mins on the bus from the city centre.  It is very near the university campus and most residents are young families and students.  The area has excellent facilities, lots of open space and parks and is well-connected to the main roads to the coast, airport, mountains, etc.

The students:  Most of our students are young children (infant & primary) and adults, although we gradaully have more and more adolescents.  For our young learners, we include preparation for the Cambridge young learner exams.  We also offer extra activities on Fridays such as craft, drama or projects.  Many of the adults are doing exam preparation classes (FCE, PET, CAE, etc).  Learning English is a long-term project for our students.  We aim to show a personal interest in every one of them, to ensure they make the best progress and that the take full advantage of all that the school has to offer.  We arrange occasional social activities for them outside of class time.

The classes:  The children come twice a week for 40min or 60min lessons and the adults come twice a week for 1h30 or once a week for 3h.  All our classes follow a clear syllabus, using up-to-date appropriate coursebook and supplementary material.  Our students do internal exams, written and oral, twice a year and receive written progress reports – we have parents’ evening  where they can meet  the teacher to discuss their child’s progress.

Teachers:  For the forthcoming year, we are looking to expand our ambitious, dynamic team.  We are looking for professional teachers who take pride in what they do, who care about the students and who keen and enthusiastic to do the best possible job in a small and growing school.
