Live and learn English


Welcome to your Future Self 

Sharing is caring!

You’ve decided to improve your career prospects or go for that personal life goal and as part of that, you need to learn English. So, the search is on for English Language Centres in a location and school that will suit your needs. Perhaps you should look for one that can also offer additional learning opportunities, as well as language immersion, cultural and fun experiences as well as the opportunity to meet and network with people from around the world.

If you have cleared your schedule to pursue your dreams, max the time out – you may never get the opportunity again to dedicate this time to yourself; look around for extra learning opportunities; perhaps you want to surf, dance, dive, cook or up your professional skills so you can slay your career goals?

Introducing EC x FutureLearn. Alongside EC’s highly effective language learning programme, you will have access to a wide range of courses on their online platform, which allow you to tailor your learning experience to match your interests and goals. Whether you want to expand your business knowledge, explore culture and creativity, or learn IT and engineering skills, FutureLearn’s high-quality courses developed and delivered by universities and professional bodies, coupled with EC’s onsite support will help you achieve your aspirations.

How it works

We keep you motivated!

Your specialised induction will set you up to learn. We will ensure you have chosen the right course, share tips for successful online learning and guide you on setting realistic goals.

Your weekly session with an EC teacher provides you with the support you need to make the most of your online learning experience, by providing you with guidance, checking your progress and giving you the opportunity to share what you have learnt with others – a great way to embed what you have learnt.

Through the week you work independently on your chosen course, we recommend a minimum of 3 hours self-study per week, and on Fridays, you will have a review session in class to discuss and reflect on your learning and challenges so far. You will use this lesson to prepare for the following week too.

What you can study:

  • Entrepreneurship & Strategy development
  • Marketing
  • Leadership
  • HR & career
  • IT & engineering
  • Fashion & Creative arts
  • Well-being
