EF EfektaT™ - The cloud-based English language school for companies

The EF Efekta™ cloud-based school was developed by EF to serve professionals needing to learn English quickly and flexibly for their roles at work. The entire programme is available online and includes 2000 hours of multimedia, self-study content, with teacher-checkpoints to ensure the learning has been assimilated. It also includes virtual, teacher-led conversation classes and private lessons. An initial placement test ensures all learners start at the correct level for their needs. And a Corporate Reporting Centre makes it easy for HR teams to track learner progress against specific KPIs.

Study Abroad Programmes for Executives

The EF company-sponsored study abroad programmes are specifically designed for executives who need to develop their language skills quickly, because their jobs depend on it. For fifty years since the founding of EF, EF study abroad programmes have been structured around the best possible way to learn a language: immersion. Today, EF is the largest provider of travel abroad 'immersion' study programmes worldwide.

About EF - Education First

In 1965, EF was founded by Bertil Hult who left his native Sweden to explore professional opportunities in London. After a short while immersed in an English environment, he found himself speaking English fluently.

Inspired by his own experience, Hult started EF - Education First on the premise of 'learning by doing' and revolutionising the way we teach language. A true trend-setter, EF launched the world's first multimedia language learning programme together with Apple Computer. Today, the EF virtual learning environment is the most advanced cloud-based language learning experience worldwide. In addition to a powerful virtual learning system, EF operates 500 schools and offices in over 50 countries, with more than 40,000 employees, teachers and leaders.
