Courses

At EC, we follow a 'Communicative Method' syllabus, which works to develop all four English language skills - reading, writing, speaking and listening. Only when you are confident in all four of these areas will you achieve fluency.

To give an engaging and relevant framework to learning these skills, each lesson will focus on a specific topic, which will vary from current affairs to everyday issues. Your professional and friendly teachers will select topics that create interest, discussion and debate in the class.

This means as you engage with the language, you will also learn a lot about your classmates and different cultures around the world, all within an English context! As well as taking an active part in classroom discussions, you will work on your language skills in small groups, pairs or individually on tasks and projects. As you learn correct English pronunciation, increase your vocabulary, work on your grammar and improve your sentence construction, you will find you become able to express yourself in an accurate and appropriate way.

In addition to our courses at EC Miami we run free workshops to further support your language development. You can choose to attend our Lecture Series where you will practice listening and note-taking skills in a real-life setting with a teacher or another native English speaker. Or join our Pronunciation Clinic where you can choose from ‘general’ pronunciation clinics for all students and clinics targeted at specific accents.

Try our Conversation Class where you join a group conversation with a teacher or native English speaker to discuss an issue of interest. Or take part in one of our Reading Workshops and learn new vocabulary, realize different structures, acquire English naturally...all by reading!

We know that learning English is not just about the classroom. EC Miami has a varied program of social activities. As an EC student, you will be invited to a free welcome event and enjoy a varied calendar of social and leisure activities throughout your stay. 

Some of the many activities available include: Karaoke -Show off your English singing skills!  Art Walk-Learn about Miami’s art scene. Outdoor Movie- Watch a movie with fellow students outdoors at Soundscape. Sports-Including soccer on the beach and other fun group sports.
