All EC Live Courses
Before we get into the course differences of EC Live online English courses, all EC Live classes are small and with a maximum of 10 students. We believe that this allows for more intensive learning and increased time for teacher- to-student interaction. Your teacher can closely monitor your speaking and give you personalized feedback.
Another great aspect of EC Lives lesson methodology are our collaborative sessions. Students work freely and independently with each other and all collaborations are monitored by the teacher, but the main interactions are among students themselves This is a great replication of real life workplace collaboration you will experience when you use English at work and in life! Not to mention the increased functionality of Microsoft Teams allows students to message, video call and share documents with each other.
