Study abroad- live the language
There is no better and more effective way to learn than to be immersed in a culture that speaks the language you are studying. You’re surrounded by the language on a daily basis, seeing and hearing it in the proper context. You’ll find yourself in a wide variety of real-life situations. Practice your new language skills in class, during lunch with new friends, over dinner with your host family and while exploring your course town. Pretty soon you may even start to dream in your new language!
Language teaching at EF focuses on developing confidence and fluency at all stages of learning. We employ communicative, task-based methods of teaching, grounding all activities in real-world language use. Our print library offers a variety of interaction and task types, with pair and group work embedded in all units. Our online learning component uses interactive tools and techniques to provide exposure to native speakers and to provide models of language use with a cognitive apprenticeship approach. All units of instruction, print or online, are sequenced in such a way as to present new language in context and recycle language items both vertically through the levels and horizontally across levels.
