Before your class
Your teacher will set up a pre-class assignment with relevant questions for you to discuss on Teams with your classmates (in English!). This assignment can be anything from a reading or listening from your course book, a relevant video or article, or a Flashpoint from EC Online. Your conversations will be monitored by your teacher and progress recorded online.
During your class
You'll collaborate via video with small groups of 4-8 students from around the world and your teacher where you’ll outline your objectives and goals, discuss the questions and task from the pre-class assignment, review any questions and set up the post-class collaborative activity as well as the pre-class assignment for the next day.
After your class
You'll be asked to work on an English writing or speaking post-class collaboration activity which you will upload on Teams. Just like with the pre-class assignment, you can discuss virtually with your classmates and your English teacher can monitor the chat, giving feedback and error-correction where necessary.

Great school, really different from others. It was quite modern and just beautiful. There almost wasn't any Russians. The school was located in the city center. There were different kinds of after class activities and excursions as well. Totally recommend everyone to come to EC!
