• • • • • • • • • • • • •

Ideal course for: Students wanting to learn a language as quickly as possible for academic or professional reasons.

Description: Make maximum progress during your stay abroad. Highly recommended for serious students who need to learn a language as quickly as possible for academic reasons. Our highly structured syllabus, comprised of 32 morning and afternoon lessons a week (total tuition time of 21 hours and 20 minutes), will have you speaking and writing with confidence in the least amount of time.

Details: >> 14 general language lessons >> 6 general teacher-guided lessons in iLab >> 10 special interest classes (see list of examples to the right) >> 1 lecture (double lesson)

Why is EF Intensive our most popular course? Because not only do you maximize the amount that your language skills improve, you also gain valuable time to practice with fellow students. This extra interaction enables you to communicate in a natural way, faster than on other courses, and in the process form lasting friendships. How many weeks should students enroll for an EF Intensive Course? The longer you study, the more you will improve, guaranteed. That’s why students seeking advanced language skills enroll for a minimum of 3 to 6 weeks. Keep in mind that Intensive students make progress 25 to 50% faster. A 6-week course allows most students to advance one full level of ability, and many intensive students choose to achieve greater fluency with courses of 3 months or more.

All extra costs, such as books, supplies, equipment, laboratory fees, rentals and any similar charges not included in the tuition must be clearly stated in the enrollment/application documents.
