Intensive English Language Courses at EJEF
EJEF courses are tailor-made to respond to the level and requirements of the individual. Class sizes are thus very small, usually numbering two or three and never more than four for core lessons. The class size varies for afternoon option lessons and lectures. The four language skills, listening, speaking, reading and writing, are covered, with varying degrees of emphasis according to need. A systematic approach to grammar is combined with functional (practical situation-oriented) work. A wide variety of audio-visual texts as well as authentic material prepared by EJEF is used.
