THE ELH STORY - "English Language House"
How it all started:
English Language House was set up in 1998 by Tatiana, an EFL teacher and Cambridge examiner who moved to Milton Keynes with her family in 1989.
Tatiana had worked for the British Council abroad as an EFL teacher and Cambridge examiner for the FCE, CAE, CPE and IELTS exams. She also worked for Bell English in the UK and for private language schools abroad. When she moved to Milton Keynes with her husband and very young children there was not much EFL work available in the city. She briefly worked for Milton Keynes College and then for Thornton College. In 1998 she hired a room for a few hours each week at the Church of Christ the Cornerstone and she and started running EFL classes for international students.
The classes soon became very popular.
Satisfied students told their friends and soon the school started to grow. In just one year the number of students had increased and more teachers had to be
