Your Learning Journey
When you choose to learn English with EC your experience starts before you even arrive. Find out more about what to expect as an EC stududent.
We know how important it is for students to see their progress. Our systems ensure you have the time and information to discuss your progress with your teachers.
Practical Homework Tasks: your teachers will give you homework tasks that give you the opportunity to practise what you’ve learnt outside the classroom so you can see exactly how well you’re progressing.
Weekly Scores: each week your teacher will give you scores on your speaking, homework, and participation and motivation. These can be accessed through MyEC and discussed during Feedback Friday.
Feedback Friday: on Friday, your teacher will revise and consolidate the week’s learning. You will practise what you’ve learnt and receive feedback from your teacher and your classmates on your progress.
