At EF, we think that children learn languages faster in full immersion environments. It’s all very well to learn a language at school, from a book or the internet, but in order to really master a language, which means communicating clearly and confidently, an immersion course is by far the best and most efficient option. Children will need to use their language skills in all aspects of daily life while living and studying in a new country and culture.
Our language immersion programs are varied and flexible, so that students can reach their individual goals at their own pace.
Our courses focus on communication, as we want students to have fun while learning a new language. We also offer a wide range of activities such as student parties, sports events, sightseeing tours and excursions. Another focus of our programs is the cultural aspect. EF students experience a new culture, make friends from over 100 countries, and prepare for a global future.
All of our language schools are located in the heart of the most interesting cities around the world, like London, Paris, Los Angeles, Sydney, Barcelona or Singapore. Modern classrooms and top facilities paired with highly qualified teachers and staff and the latest language learning technologies ensure a fast progress.
As certified language skills become increasingly important in our globalized world, EF also offers a variety of exam preparation courses. In our schools, students can prepare for accredited language exams such as the Cambridge Certificate, TOEFL, IELTS etc. With our free English Test (www.efset.org), students also have the opportunity to test their English level online.
Although the majority of EF students learn English, our language courses abroad for Spanish, Italian, French, Chinese, German and Japanese have experienced a high increase in demand and popularity.
Whether you are interested in taking a language course in Spain during the summer break or spending an entire semester in the United States, with EF you can start your language course every Monday throughout the year.
