Welcome to English For Living Inc, your online source for standardized English training programs. We are happy that you have chosen to Learn with EFL. Our courses are carefully planned and administered to eliminate unnecessary repetition. We have six General English Programs and many specialist English programs to suite your personal and professional needs. EFL believes that a students ability to learn is a combination of self motivation and the mentoring provided by the careful attention of a skilled Instructor. Matching the student with the best instructor is EFL method of ensuring quality English education and a memorable experience for both Instructor and student. Students first select their choice of instructors by reviewing a recommended list of Instructors provided by the EFL system. Instructors then interview the student to determine if they are qualified professionally for the requested EFL program instructor skill requirements and determine from reviewing the Client profile if their characteristics would be a good match. This ensures that the client is learning what they need as outlined in the EFL curriculum and not repeat content or program which they already mastered from personal training or other English programs. Clients will have an Instructor who is best matched to care in their leaning. For example they may be at one level for their grammar class, and may be in a different level for the conversation class.

At EFL, we realize that each student has unique learning abilities, language skills and developmental needs. Our system assesses students' written and oral capabilities, so that every student is matched to an appropriate EFL program level and with the right instructor to instruct the standardized program. If students are placed in the level appropriate for their English training needs, they learn effectively and quickly. All classes are generally taught on a one on one basis or in a smaller group setting allowing the student to progress at their own pace.
