Andy Kovacs ELC Founder and Education Director
Andy studied Philosophy of Language and Linguistics at University College London and graduated with an Honours degree. In 1997,
while working in London for Westminster Council's flagship adult education service: WAES, Andy devised the idea of professional
English communication consultancy. He frequently encountered many managers who, although they had a highly advanced
knowledge of English, lacked the specific written and spoken communication skills as well as the correct formal style, tone and
confidence to achieve total success in their jobs.
Andy's response was to research and identify the specific communication needs of professionals in the modern business world and
to create and develop fast, intensive and effective full day seminars to enable busy professionals to immediately gain the
communication skills that they needed to do their jobs with the greatest degree of success.
Since moving to Turkey in 2002, Andy has been employed by one of Istanbul's most famous, innovative and successful high schools
to design and teach language courses to maximize the communication skills and performance of English learners. During this time
he was able to fully develop his knowledge of Turkish speakers' strengths and weaknesses when learning English. This priceless
knowledge was fully deployed in the development of all of English Language Consultants’ seminars as well as guiding our approach
to professional English communication consultancy.
