English Courses in Honolulu
EF’s English courses in Honolulu combine innovated language learning with an escape to a tropical island.
Study English in Honolulu and experience life in America’s tropical paradise. Our English courses are held in EF’s modern school, literally steps from the white sands of Waikiki Beach. EF Honolulú’s language courses are so close to the beach that many of our classrooms have views of the Pacific Ocean. Our modern school is equipped with a welcoming student lounge, an activities office and spacious classrooms.
Hawaii combines the pleasures of an American luxury-resort lifestyle with ancient Polynesian traditions. At EF Honolulu, we complement our English courses with special interest classes that have local flair, such as Hawaiian Society and Culture. EF Honolulu students are immersed in a culturally diverse community known for its warm hospitality.
American English. Tropical Paradise.
No other American city can compare with the natural beauty of Honolulu. Perched along the shores of the Pacific Ocean, every neighborhood of the city is within short walking distance of the beach. EF Honolulu’s students take to the water right away, enrolling in surf lessons on Waikiki beach or swimming with dolphins at a local marine park. On the weekends, EF organizes hikes to the top of Diamond Head Crater or into the jungle surrounding Manoa Falls.
Honolulú is an American city, but Hawaiian culture is extremely important to the local identity. Our students’ most memorable experiences often come from tasting the local food at a luau feast or stumbling through the steps of the traditional hula dance. EF’s English courses will be your main focus, but the first word you need to learn is ‘Aloha’, Hawaiian for welcome.
