What can you expect on this course?
More Exposure to English
Extra exposure to English in the classroom will help you to think in English, cutting down on time spent translating from your own language into English.
Core English Plus Your Choice of Special Focus
It’s your English course, so you get to decide what you want to study! You can choose from a number of options and focus on the areas of English that you want to improve. This will definitely help you make the most of your time on your English course.
Maximum Teacher Contact Time
More time with your teachers will help you to become more confident with your English. All lessons are creative and energising, allowing you to feel more self-assured.
Intensive Focus on All Skills
More time in class will allow you to focus on the key skill areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening, which will further develop fluency and accuracy through grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
Topic-Based lessons in Everyday Contexts
With web articles, music, video and other authentic resources, our teachers use ‘real-life’ materials that not only help you to understand how English is used by native speakers, but also help you to study English independently, long after you have left EC. Every lesson is based on a topic. The English you need to know is taught within the context of the topic. You will then be able to apply your newfound skills correctly in other situations.
A Focused and Relaxed Classroom Environment
Happy students learn better than unhappy ones! That’s not a secret, but it’s something that we at EC strongly believe. And so our classrooms are places where hard work is carried out in informal and relaxed settings. Your ability and motivation will improve in a classroom with a great atmosphere.
Specially Focused Classes
Options will vary across EC schools, but we have a variety of options to suit your level and interests. Course include:
- English in the City
- Global Awareness
