What we like about the school

  • Top rated school facilities

EC English

The language school EC English was founded in Brisbane, Australia in 1976. The school is located in the heart of Brisbane's shopping and business district. EC English operated previously under the name CES Embassy English.

Covid-19 Status: School currently open

Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by EC English

Guiding principles:
• Only the EC part of campus is open on shared campuses
• Temperature checks are done on entry of every person entering the campus - Australia only
• Use of the government COVID Safe App is encouraged - Australia only
• Staff and students are told not to come to campus if suffering symptoms
• Signs posted prominently throughout the school to remind all of the importance of distancing and hygiene
• Encouragement of social distancing measures: 1 metre for Auckland and 1.5 metres for Australian campuses

Common areas
• Students can eat lunch in their classroom ‘bubble’ to minimise contact with other classes
• We strongly recommend students bring food for break time and not leave at break time
• Every second computer in the computer lab is available to encourage physical distancing. A maximum of 12 students are permitted in the computer room at any given time
• Bathroom doors are kept open to allow staff and students to enter and exit without touching the doors. Of course, privacy
considerations dictate whether this is possible in all campuses
• Lifts are encouraged only for deliveries or those affected by disabilities and health issues – stairwells should be used by all others

Class management and timetables
• Staggered start, break, and end times to minimise contact at ingress, egress and on campus - Australian campuses only
• Class sizes kept to 10 or 15 in the case of suitably large rooms, e.g. partitioned double rooms opened to be one
• Furniture is arranged to allow safe distancing

Personal protective equipment
• Hand sanitizer is available in every classroom and additional sanitizer dispensers at reception and in staffrooms

Cleaning
• Schools are cleaned twice daily, with specific attention to door handles, keyboards, switches and buttons

Alternative delivery and work arrangements
• Students who request to continue studying online are welcome to do so.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak many countries have imposed travel restrictions or taken other steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Travelers can find useful and important information for trips to Australia on their Government website.
