FOR PASTORAL MINISTRY
Welcome to ELSPM
ELSPM is a registered and accredited ELICOS provider in Melbourne, Australia,
specialising in teaching English to those involved in Christian ministry.
We teach English to pastoral workers and theological students
in a supportive and friendly Christian environment.

Melbourne is a safe and culturally diverse city that offers students many opportunities to practise their language skills in supportive communities. It is regularly rated as one of world’s most liveable cities (The Economist magazine).
