Description

At EC, every step in the students’ language-learning journey counts.

EC follows a communicative approach combined with a curriculum developed by industry professionals with combined experience of over 30 years, and based on measurable data collected from students.

This means as you engage with the language, you will also learn a lot about your classmates and different cultures around the world, all within an English context!

About Location

The city is ranked by Forbes as the third happiest US city for young professionals. The Washington English school is in the Downtown area, within walking distance of the White House, Smithsonian and Kennedy Center.

EC Washington DC is not affiliated with the federal or District of Columbia government.

Teaching Method

To give an engaging and relevant framework to learning, each lesson will focus on a specific topic, which will vary from current affairs to everyday issues. Your professional and friendly teachers will select topics that create interest, discussion and debate in the class.

As well as taking an active part in classroom discussions, you will work on your language skills in small groups, pairs or individually on tasks and projects. And as you learn correct English pronunciation, increase your vocabulary, work on your grammar and improve your sentence construction, you will find you become able to express yourself in an accurate and appropriate way.
