Why choose EF?
If you just want to offer English language training as an employee benefit, there are cheaper places to go.
If you want to make a dramatic impact on the way your business communicates, collaborates, serves customers and closes deals, there’s only one option.
We are hugely proud that many of the world’s most successful and fastest-growing companies have turned to EF for English language acceleration that drives real business impact. They view English learning and better corporate-wide English proficiency as a key company skill, and critical success factor in achieving their business goals – we call it Strategic English Learning.
They rely on EF because we deliver proven results backed by a unique learning guarantee.
We can only do this because we combine academic rigour with innovative technology and a powerful service delivery methodology:
English proficiency is a strategic business skill – but too many companies treat it only as an employee benefit. The result is ad hoc language training that costs a lot of money (often dispersed across many budgets) but delivers very little return on investment.
EF specializes in Strategic English – a rigorous, systematic approach to the kind of English business people need, delivered through trackable programs that prove ROI.
A more effective learning experience
Each learner benefits from our EF Method™, a task-based, communicative learning approach that combines the best of classroom training with our next-generation online learning environment.
Instead of a one-size-fits-all software solution, we design and deliver custom programs that match your goals, your budget and where you are today
Our consultants work with you to group learners by urgency, seniority and target skillset, and then design efficient, effective programs for each group.
These may combine Executive Language Institutes for your most senior executives with a variety of learning paths in the EF Efekta™, our cloud-based learning environment.
Progress guaranteed – and tracked
When you work with EF, you can track the progression of each learner – and of your entire program – every step of the way. And we guarantee progress if learners meet a minimum participation level.
It’s all part of our Learning Logistics™ service delivery methodology and it’s changing the way large organizations approach their Strategic English challenges.
Our programs are guided by our world-class research unit run in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics.
Our distinguished team of scientists and linguists are jointly conducting research at the forefront of technology to improve the way students learn English.
