WELCOME TO EC! EC off ers fantastic study locations in the best English-speaking destinations in the world and, with over 20 years experience, we are committed to providing a high standard of education to students worldwide. As EC expands globally, we gain an ever-better insight into what makes exciting, engaging and valuable programmes for our young learners.
LEARNING SHOULD BE FUNWe work hard to meet the needs of all age groups and levels, with programmes designed to keep students motivated and on the go! Learning English takes on a completely new dimension as students are encouraged to have fun through dynamic, energetic lessons that are also packed with a high educational content. They bene t from experienced teaching staff and exciting leisure activities that enable them to make friends with other young people from all over the world. With innovative activities and varied social programmes, students will get the chance to practise their English with their new international friends beyond the classroom.
YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDSOur centres are recognised by leading associations in each country as well as by major international organisations. These accreditations prove our commitment to providing high quality English language courses to all our students worldwide.
INCREDIBLE STAFF AND TEACHERS We love, love, love what we do and this is re ected in all our work, our teaching and our exciting activity programmes. Students are made to feel welcome and part of the EC family from day one.
5LEARNING Our teachers are fully-quali ed, skilled and friendly, providing individual support and assistance to every student.
Classrooms are modern, spacious and airy, and take a maximum of 15 students, which allows for individual attention whilst still providing a fantastic mix of nationalities and personalities. These dynamic yet personal classes create the perfect environment for learning.
Students will have the opportunity to learn and practice their English through all four language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. They will activate their passive knowledge of English, build their vocabulary, improve their functional language skills and develop their understanding of grammar. All this helps our young learners advance in their accuracy, uency and above all, con dence.
All students sit a placement test on their rst day and are placed in a class with other students of the same level.
Every EC course is speci cally designed to appeal to our students, depending on their age group and interests. Through these fun, relevant and engaging lessons, every young EC student will improve their language skills during their time with us.
SUPPORT AND SAFETYOur number one priority at all times is the safety and wellbeing of our students. We understand that this may be the rst time young learners are travelling without a parent or guardian, and that they might feel homesick throughout their stay. This is why EC provides a strong support network intent on helping students feel as comfortable as possible.
Our dedicated team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure the best care and assistance for our students. Students are encouraged to seek any help they need at any time during their stay, and parents are assured that their children are in the safest of hands during their EC programme.
