Any living room in the world can now be transformed into a classroom by EC English, who have adapted their passion for full immersion face-to-face teaching in response to the global pandemic. The new teaching platform— EC Virtual—brings together people from across the world to learn English online from the comfort of their own home without sacrificing the chemistry of face-to-face learning. EC Virtual classes are taught by well-travelled and passionate teachers and are kept to small groups of four to eight students to ensure every person benefits from the full-immersive learning experience. A key partnership with National Geographic Learning gives students access to engaging learning materials that help develop global competencies alongside English language skills. EC English offers classes suited to a range of abilities from beginner to proficient. How does EC Virtual work? Before the lesson, the teacher sets up a pre-class assignment for relevant discussions in the class. During the 90-minute intensive lesson, students collaborate via a live video conference and the teacher outlines objectives and goals, offers questions and a post-class collaborative activity. After class, students work on a structured 60-minute English writing or speaking assignment which is shared online. Students can discuss their work while being closely monitored by the teacher.
EC Virtual (which is offered in French as well as English) is available for €99 per week, with the option to add additional private lessons. To sign up or learn more, visit www.ecenglish. com/virtual.
