The English Language Institute of Barcelona (E.L.I) is the premier TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, GRE and SAT preparation center in Barcelona. In fact, E.L.I has prepared thousands of individuals and helped them obtain their desired TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, GRE and SAT scores.

E.L.I consists of a well-educated team of native speakers that have many years of experience in preparing individuals for the TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, GRE and SAT. This experience makes E.L.I teachers able to develop a specific course syllabus with the student’s specific needs. E.L.I recognizes students’ strengths and weaknesses and understands what is needed to achieve maximum results.

The E.L.I Method:
At E.L.I we have developed a methodology of teaching which is very flexible, in order to cover as much as possible the needs of those who must take a standarized test. For all our preparatory courses (TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT) our individual and semi-individual classes are highly customized. In fact, not only does the student have an American mother-tongue but additionally the teacher identifies the “strengths and weaknesses” of the student. This is very important and the teachers develop a strategy to help strengthen those skills in the classroom in order for the student to achieve their perfect score. Teachers thoroughly explain and demonstrate the particular strategies and tactics to be used which are necessary to ace each different section on the exam. Teachers regularly engage with their students and monitor their progress which, as a result, has allowed the vast majority of E.L.I’s students to achieve their desired score.


E.L.I Facts
•Approximately 99% of our students are able to achieve their desired score on the first time.

•E.L.I courses are developed based on the level of language proficiency and the learning curve of individual students. We pay close attention to students needs, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and then work on maximizing students strengths and minimizing their weaknesses.

•Before you enroll in one of our courses, you will undergo a diagnostic test to verify your language skills and then you will be advised the most appropriate course to optimize your investment of time and money.

•We follow students through even after the course has finished. ELI will help you fill out the paperwork in order to register for your test and will continue to be an advisor and mentor you after the course has been completed.




I wanted to go to Copenhagen to study for a semester next year but I needed to score 91 in the TOEFL exam (something that at the beginning sounded so unreachable). Thanks to Jaclyn, her experience, and her tips, I've taken the TOEFL in December and I've scored 110!!! I'm so happy and I really recommend to take classes with her! I've improved so much in one month and a half since I've been able to focus on my weaknesses as well as to improve my writing and speaking skills. In conclusion, if you are reading this because you need preparation for the TOEFL exam, don't hesitate, just take your phone and call this school so you can achieve your goal!! Jaclyn is such a nice person and excellent teacher ?


I recently took a SAT preparation course at ELI. I needed to obtain a score of at least 1800 (out of 2400) in order to study at my first choice university in the USA. I had taken other SAT courses in a group setting, but wasn't getting the results I needed. However, at this school I really benefited from the one-to-one coaching environment. I learned many useful tips and strategies that I was able to use on the exam. My professor gave me a lot of work and was always helpful, positive, and motivating. Without ELI I wouldn't have scored an overall of 2150 on my SAT exam. I highly recommend this place and their professors.


I attended an intensive mini-group course at ELI and I achieved exactly the mark I needed for my application to UPenn. The course was always enjoyable, and with only 3 other people in the group we could spend more time correcting everyone's mistakes. I recommend it to everyone.


I was on a hurry to do the exam and I had very scarce time to prepare it, so I took some classes with Sarah and she helped me a lot to understand the different parts of the TOEFL exam and with high efficiency she gave me the right directions in order to do a good exam... Few classes, efficient program, practical lessons... GREAT!
