The “ELICOS difference” is what sets us apart from other language schools. It is more than just a language school. It is a place of hope, inspiration, collaboration, and support. It is a place where you can have fun at your job and truly make a difference. Here are several reasons why ESL teachers choose ELICOS.

In addition, you can find proficient speakers from many other different countries all contributing to student development. This way students are exposed to various accents thereby increasing the authentic listening and speaking experience.

We learn from each other as everyone has something to offer. Our entire organization plays a large role in ensuring the success of our students so all ideas are welcomed. The corporate culture makes you feel like you are part of a family.
At Elicos, we run monthly workshops to ensure that teachers are consistently working on developing their craft. In addition, peer observation and senior teacher drop-ins are the norm and contribute to professional development opportunities.

” It’s all part of the experience!” working in a classroom with small class sizes makes an Elicos teacher’s job far easier and more rewarding. Teachers can actually see the effects of their lessons as students progress and develop right before their eyes.
At Elicos, contracted teachers get paid vacation plus national holidays which add up to a great deal of time off per year. Moreover, unlike public schools, an Elicos teacher gets to choose their time off to suit their needs.
A good mixture of staff both Malay and foreign. Staff at Elicos get along well with each other and as it’s an English school everyone can and does speak English. The school also has numerous team-building and social activities to encourage and strengthen the ‘Elicos Family’ bond.
Unlike most language schools that are open and busiest in the evenings and on weekends, Elicos operates from 8:30 to 5:30 Monday to Friday. This frees up the ESL teacher to enjoy evenings and weekends with their family and friends.
