Teaching methodology With 21 schools around the world, EC schools have a reputation for excellence in teaching English. All EC group schools follow a 'Communicative Method' syllabus, which works to develop all four English language skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening. To give an engaging and relevant framework for learning these skills, each lesson focuses on a specific topic, which varies from current affairs to everyday issues.

The EC Cambridge team of professional and friendly teachers select topics that create interest, discussion and debate in the class. Students engage with the language, learning about other classmates and different cultures around the world, all within an English context. As well as taking an active part in classroom discussions, students work on their language skills in small groups, pairs or individually on tasks and projects.

Classes are taught in a maximum of 15 (average 12) students and active participation from each student is encouraged. EC Cambridge is dedicated to improving fluency in English through fast-paced and fun lessons that immerse the student in the language.

Teachers:

During your time at EC Cambridge, you will be supported by a team of two teachers who will work together to assess your needs and monitor your progress. All teachers are qualified, native English speakers.

Feedback and Testing:

Students receive continuous one-to-one feedback with their teacher throughout each course, where they can discuss their progress and any areas for improvement.

At the beginning of each course, students are tested for language ability using the Oxford Online Placement Test (prior to arrival) or EC Cambridge’s own test (on arrival) to assess language ability. There are nine levels, from Beginner to Proficient, and students are placed in classes according to their place on the scale. EC Cambridge also has a Progress Planner which helps students plan their route to fluency.

The EC Cambridge courses all carry the EC Guarantee, which means that if students do not progress at the rate expected, they will receive additional lessons to help them reach their goals, at no extra charge.

Student Welfare:

As well as teaching staff, EC Cambridge has a welfare team who provide full support to students as well as a varied social program. The team help with accommodation, airport transfers, transport and other personal issues during your time at the school.
