Why learn a language abroad?

The memorization that feels tedious at home will come naturally when you're living in an immersive environment and attending our EF language school. The words you need will come up again and again, so you remember them without trying.

Your accent will become more intelligible as you hear native speakers and imitate them. It's never too late to learn a foreign language abroad, and our languages courses start year-round so there's no reason to wait another day. Study a language abroad is tough, but EF makes its a bit easier.

Language courses abroad for all ages and levels

Whatever your age or language level, you’ll advance one level every six weeks – thanks to our innovative and personalized learning method that blends language courses abroad, interactive tools and cultural immersion. Our innovative Efekta™ Learning System combines quality instruction with advanced technology and cultural immersion for maximum results. We develop our own course curricula, instructional methods, course books and digital learning materials.

We know the difference a great teacher makes in a language study abroad. All EF teachers hold teaching qualifications and have an average of seven years of teaching experience. But what makes EF teachers truly exceptional is that they are selected for their enthusiasm, creativity and dedication to students’ success.

Why attend a language school?

Learning a language abroad is a long process, but right from the start you'll be rewarded with new possibilities, cultural revelations, and a clearer sense of the wider world.
