FUSION



Efficient, flexible and personalised: add Fusion to any EC course to improve and extend your experience with digital learning technology.

What can you expect on this course?

Fusion is a powerful digital tool that can be added to any EC course.

Featuring over 55,000 hours of high quality content on our online learning platform, plus live tutoring sessions, Fusion allows you to gain confidence and increase your level before you study abroad, and ensures your learning continues after you return home.

With Fusion, online and face-to-face activities reinforce, complement, and build on one another. The approach, known as blended learning, leads to greater success and long-term retention of the new language. You’ll see all this as detailed metrics show your progress towards fluency across the language skills.

Choose between Fusion 12 and Fusion 6 (see below).

HOW FUSION WORKS

  • Get started. Start learning English on our powerful digital platform. You will assess your level, choose your subjects, and monitor how you are progressing in each skill using detailed online metrics.
  • Before you travel. Before you study abroad, you will also attend live online sessions with an EC teacher – including group and private sessions. Choose your session times and private tutor based on your requirements.
  • Your study abroad experience. Once at the EC school of your choice, you will join other students, feeling confident and ready to interact in English. Make even better, faster progress as a result of your online preparation.
  • When you get home. Keep learning online and developing your speaking skills with group conversation sessions. In the remaining private sessions, you can target any language areas you would like to focus on and receive personalised feedback.
