How we create the points regarding what we like/dislike about a school

EC Virtual: EC English has created a virtual space to provide students with their quality English lessons online. There are a number of scheduled course times to take into account the different time zones and timetables of students. The teachers are all highly trained native English speakers who are able to construct these lessons effectively through an online medium. Each 90 minute session is live, which allows the student to interact with both the teacher and other classmates.

English Courses: EC Virtual has a range of courses available on their online platform. Students can learn general English, prepare for the IELTS exam or join a pathway programme to help them move into further education.

Short business courses: These short online business courses at EC virtual allow the student to specify in a particular field in the business world. The separate topics include communication at work, meetings, presentations and job seekers. Each course topic consists of a four week module, which starts on a specific day of the month. It is possible to book just one or a combination of as many as the student feels would help them grow in their occupation.

Full package: Students will benefit from more than just the course that they have booked. Each day of lessons includes a 30 minute structured post-class activity with your classmates, access to EC online resources with a large range of self study material, progress assessments, free use of the main Microsoft Office programmes and ability to add one-to-one classes when needed.

National Geographic Learning: EC Virtual has partnered with National Geographic Learning, in order to use engaging material for students to learn English from.

Pre-class: Students will be asked to use 15 minutes of their own time before the class to prepare for their session. This often includes reading an article or watching a video clip. The preparation can take longer or shorter depending on your own learning speed, but it means that all students are prepared for the material used in the class.

Chain ID: EC English Schools are all part of the larger group of EC Holdings Ltd. As a group, they have pushed boundaries within English tuition, for all levels and age groups, for many years. The group consists of multiple schools, spread throughout locations such as the USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Malta, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

The "EC Promise" is true throughout all EC locations, promising students that their English level will improve if they follow the three steps of attendance, homework and participation. The group ensures that all students will receive a friendly atmosphere to learn in, high-quality tuition and care, a varied social programme to accompany their learning, and appropriate facilities to reach their language goals.
