Course Material and Technology

Popular with students and teachers alike, EF course books have been developed by a dedicated team of linguistic and educational experts. Course books are accompanied by a wide range of supplementary materials including flashcards, posters, handouts, CD’s, videos, songs and in-class computer applications, all essential for teachers to deliver varied and engaging classes. All schools have interactive white boards, connected to the internet and loaded with multimedia resources which add an exciting new dimension to how you can teach.

Young Learners

The main age group range from 7 to 14 years old, although classes are also offered to younger students and teenagers as well, ensuring teachers teach a wide variety of ages and abilities. This age group requires a lot of energy and passion as well as the ability to create excitement and fun in the classroom. Teachers are encouraged to use their creativity to really bring the lesson alive and make the most of a variety of activities such as role plays, group work, competitions, drama, stories and songs. The class sizes are kept small, to an average of 8-12 students, which allows for noticeable progress to be made and also makes classroom management that much easier. 


EF also offers courses to adult and business English students, although this represents only 10 – 30% of all courses offered. Students are typically young professionals working for multinational or export companies, who are interacting more and more on a global level and are looking to develop their communication and written skills to keep ahead. English is also seen as a fun and interesting hobby by many. Lessons are focused on relevant topics and emphasis is placed on developing communication skills and improving pronunciation through pair work and role plays.

Professional development

The highest academic standards and enjoyable learning environment have established EF schools as the very best in the industry. To ensure these standards are maintained a high priority is given to on-going teacher training and development. Each center has a Director of Studies who leads training sessions, workshops and seminars on a variety of teaching topics, including teaching methodologies, lesson planning, classroom management and new material development to ensure teachers are constantly learning while they are teaching. Class observations and idea sharing sessions are also seen as important in keeping the creative energy flowing.
