The school was founded in 1996 by Lesley Bogue and has grown steadily since then. In 2009 the school was taken over by the Sprachenzentrum Wöhler e.K. Germany. We renamed the school English Encounters in 2010 and relocated to downtown Burlington in April 2010. Expert, Friendly Staff All of our teachers are certified ESL professionals with lots of experience. They are chosen for their personalities as well as their qualifications. We believe that friendly, enthusiastic and patient teachers are essential and they want your stay to be happy and educationally rewarding. Testing and Certificate When you arrive, you will take a test to determine your level and to help your teacher prepare your individual study plan. Upon full and successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate and progress report.
