WELCOME TO EF There’s no doubt about it, English is now the world’s chosen language for international communication. In business, it’s the key to better knowledge-sharing, collaboration, and customer-relations.

I’m sure many of you have seen for yourselves the benefits that English proficiency can bring to your colleagues’ effectiveness and confidence in their role - it almost makes them stand a bit taller. For all these reasons, it’s easy to see why many organizations now focus on improving English skills as one of their most strategic priorities. But what’s the best way to learn English? Well, if you are serious about improving as quickly as possible, then living and immersing yourself in the language, culture and country that speaks it really is the fastest way to do it. Directors from global companies like ABB and PWC all agree: taking time out of their busy schedules to travel abroad and immerse themselves in another language is one of the best investments they’ve ever made. This is why we’re so passionate about ‘cultural immersion’, with a teacher on-hand to guide you. It’s the vision on which we founded our company and it continues to be what gets us up in the mornings! Now, as EF Education First enters its 50th year at the forefront of language training, we have developed a great range of training solutions all built around immersion: a global network of EF schools, language centers and executive institutes in over 52 countries around the world; as well as the world’s largest English school of all, EF’s virtual school delivering personalized, structured, teacher–led training over the internet for those who cannot travel abroad. Combine all that with a worldwide network of 500 offices, and we are pretty sure we have the service and support teams in place wherever your students might be. Join us in our 50th year and help to open up the world through education. Welcome to EF!

WHY ENGLISH MATTERS The world in which we live has never been smaller. We can now travel to, communicate, and do business with the other side of the world in hours, minutes and seconds. But one thing that underpins all of it is a common language – and today, that’s English. Academic research is primarily published in it, primary and secondary schools around the world teach it, global digital communication fuels it, international business runs on it, and companies large and small are increasingly mandating it as their corporate language. Four hundred million people speak it because they are native to the countries that do. Another one billion six hundred thousand speak it as a second language or are learning to do so. That amounts to two billion people, almost a third of the entire planet. Are you or your company part of them? To compete effectively in today’s world, executives, teams and whole organizations must ensure that their English skills are ‘top notch’. Business and progress relies on it.

m

International expansion Handling international client requests, negotiations and customer service successfully requires your workforce to be confident English speakers.

Mergers Having English as the common corporate language will assist the successful integration of two corporate cultures.

Cross-border collaboration To facilitate international collaboration, organizations need improved language skills among staff members.

Improved competitiveness Managers need to maintain excellent language skills to ensure that no business opportunities are lost in translation in an increasingly globalized environment.

Internal training programs Language training courses often form part of a company’s training program for high achievers.

Promotion If you or a member of your team is ready for the next career move, language training is often necessary. More senior roles usually demand more frequent interaction with foreign partners and colleagues.

Personal development Language training can form a part of a company’s reward system for team members who have excelled.

THE FASTEST WAY TO LEARN A LANGUAGE … is to live in the country that speaks it, and having a teacher there to help you every step of the way. We call it ‘cultural immersion’. We know that through immersion our teachers can apply the most of what they are best at: academic structure and conversation practice. Combine this with tailored learning content, bespoke tutorials, digital access to EF’s virtual school and informal learning experiences of day-to-day life, and the results are the fastest possible path to language fluency. It’s on this vision we have founded our company, and now after 50 years of ‘travel abroad’ immersion language training, EF’s global network of schools, language centers and executive institutes in over 52 countries are recognized as second to none. English-only environment Speaking English, and more importantly, being required to do so, boosts our cognitive language skills very quickly. That’s why in our EF Institutes we keep a strict rule that English is the language spoken at all times. As the institute provides a professionals-only environment, you will have plenty of opportunity to apply your learning in the classroom to a more social context outside of it, while networking and communicating with fellow professionals from all around the world. Cultural exposure Immersion learning is the best way to gain exposure to the cultural traditions and customs of a nation. Sensitivity to such factors is critical for successful international communications. That is why we include host family accommodation as part of our standard course offer. That is also why we make sure to offer cultural activities outside of the scheduled classroom hours.

THE EF APPROACH At the heart of EF’s learning method are our exceptional teachers, all of whom possess both a business-oriented and a functional understanding of your job-specific training needs. We are lucky enough to be able to hire the best teachers in the field (all of our teachers have a TEFL qualification or equivalent, and a minimum of two years language teaching experience). But we don’t stop there. We train them further in our own methodology and courseware, to ensure global consistency and quality, before placing them in our schools around the world. Tailor-made curriculum Our courses are customized for you to achieve your goals, whether you need to learn grammar, pronunciation, or the vocabulary specific to your industry. In class, you’ll practise professional situations such as making appointments, going over work-related reports and presentations. Lessons are kept relevant to your profession and language needs. All our courses include 6 month’s full access to our iLab so that you can continue studying at home or at work. Students at our Executive Language Institutes also get a full year’s Premium access to our award-winning virtual English school. Progress reporting Rigorous needs-analysis and state-of-the-art progress tracking help us determine your specific training needs in relation to your job and to your goals. At the end of your course, you will take home an official Progress Report and a detailed Academic Record.

Supporting you every step of the way

1. An EF Language Consultant will help you assess your course objectives and which language areas you need to focus on.

12 | www.ef.edu/efc

2. With EF’s advanced testing tools we will establish your current English level and the level you want to achieve.

3. We will then work with you to identify a destination, a course type, and curriculum content that best fit your needs.


4. Based on your feedback and monitoring results, your Director of Studies can amend your study plan to keep your learning on track.

The EF EfektaTM Method Our learning methodology – the EF EfektaTM Method – focuses on dialogue, structure, conversation and the use of authentic language and real-life situations.

With over 50 years of experience in the business, we now know quite a few things about language learning, not least that teachers play an absolutely critical role. We also know that today’s world provides many previously-unavailable opportunities to be exposed to new language, learn new concepts, try out those concepts and really embed them. That’s why our learning methodology embraces the most modern learning techniques: digital media, multimedia devices, in-person and virtual classrooms and much more. We’re ‘flipping’ the traditional way of teaching, and engaging teachers and students throughout the process. The EF EfektaTM Method encourages the student to LEARN new language concepts themselves, either with or without a teacher present, and then immediately TRY those concepts out with examples and dialogue, with fellow students and teachers in conversation classes to help absorb the learning. They then APPLY these concepts in real-life situations, to embed what they have learnt, again with the help of teachers who can focus on areas of improvement and CERTIFY the student’s progress.


EF Research Network EF has established several long-standing partnerships with leading academic institutions.

These partnerships allow EF’s and our partners’ researchers and linguists to work together on joint projects, share research, data and best practices. The results of these joint projects help shape EF’s language training solutions. Collaboration with Cambridge University EF has established a Research Unit at the University of Cambridge Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics to promote innovation in language learning and assessment. Our distinguished team of scientists and linguists are jointly conducting research at the cutting edge of technology to fundamentally improve the way students learn English.

Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics

Other research partnerships We also have established research partner­ships with Harvard Graduate School of Education, the Peking University and Moscow State University.

WORD OF MOUTH. What our clients say

“I absolutely loved my 15 days of training. I fell in love with Boston! The teaching staff was exceptional. I was lucky enough to have Michelle as lead teacher, she was fantastic. With regards to accommodation, I was very lucky to be hosted by Louise, who cooked delicious meals every evening and who is crazy about Rock n’ Roll! I really made the most out of my stay. Thanks to the excellent teachers, the other students (with whom we got on extremely well), the school with its great infrastructure and amazing views, individual and semi-private classes... I was able to make good progress. The outings organized by EF and by the students were extremely enriching. In short, a dream come true! The hardest part was coming back to France after 15 days of pure happiness in full immersion.” Jacques Perrochat Data Center Solutions Director Schneider Electric, France

16 | www.ef.edu/efc


“The teachers and staff had exceptional knowledge and expertise in their field. They really made an effort to make me feel comfortable so I’d get as much as possible out of my stay.” Tania Yèbenes Telefónica, Spain

“I decided to take an intensive language course in Cambridge because I wanted to improve my fluency and accuracy in English language. The school atmosphere was international, relaxing and inspiring and the facilities were excellent.” Marko Honkanen Sourcing Director. Itella, Finland

EF’s immersion program was the perfect opportunity to discover how networking with people from different cultures and professors from different fields improve the learning of a new language.” Jane Teixeira Training & Development Manager.

PRIVATE

Lessons (40 min)

The fastest way to fluency: one-to-one training with a private teacher. Maximum individual attention This highly intensive course provides you with your own personal language teacher whose sole mission is to help you reach your learning goals. That means you always progress at your own pace and your teacher has the ability to react with total flexibility to your individual learning needs. Throughout your course, you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your new skills with fellow learners at coffee breaks in the lounge, over lunch in town, or during organized outings and evening activities.

One-to-one instruction means results A dedicated teacher means that you can practise by using materials relevant to you and your role. For speaking practice, you might role-play a marketing presentation, to improve reading comprehension, you might analyze an article from the daily newspaper and for listening skills you might be asked to watch an industry specific video online on an iPad. To address grammatical issues, your teacher may have you complete exercises from EF’s virtual school in the iLab.

Meet Tom, Boston teacher “With many years of business development experience, I feel most at home in the role of professional communication coach. I stress coaching here – to help our clients give more persuasive presentations, develop negotiation strategies, leadership and management skills. We also have clients who are here on their own, in career transition or for the enjoyment of Boston’s rich culture. It’s fun and rewarding to do this work, and there’s no greater satisfaction than when a client states that they learned so much more here than language. We help them create solutions to real life challenges, and we build their confidence so that they feel they can succeed anywhere in the world.” Tom McGregor / EF Executive Language Institute Boston

EF’s Learning Guarantee Our experience shows that, on average, a student will progress to a new level of the EF scale upon completion of 2 weeks of language training in our EF Executive Language Institutes. After level 8, progress from one level to the next may require longer

(4-6 weeks) courses. This is due to the increased complexity of language acquisition at those levels. Progress rate will also depend on individual qualifications such as mother tongue, attendance, time spent on homework and individual study techniques. If learning goals are not met, taking the above into consideration, our learning guarantee will allow you to study free of charge at our Teacher-led Virtual School, until you reach your predetermined goals. The Learning Guarantee is valid for all courses offered in English at our EF Executive Language Institutes in Boston and Cambridge. If you attend all your classes and complete every assignment at our EF Language Centers, we guarantee that you will advance one course level every eight weeks (more time for higher levels). If you do not, you are entitled to study for free until you do. The learning guarantee only applies to EF Language Courses Abroad. Students who choose to continue studying for free under our learning guarantee are responsible for all other costs, including but not limited to accommodation, meals, travel and visa fees. If visa regulations prohibit a student from extending their stay in their study country, they can continue to study English for free when they return home online at Englishtown.com with teacher-led classes. iLab Lessons iLab lessons are currently available at all our schools. Student enrolled in a course at our EF Executive Language Institutes are entitled to a one year Premium access to EF’s teacher-led virtual school. All students enrolled at our EF Language Centers will have access to online iLab lessons upon enrollment, throughout the course and for 6 months after their course ends.
