More about teaching kids

Blended learning for kids

Our classes for children in China are based on a blended learning model. Children attend an in-person group class at an EF English centre. They then choose to take a personalised one-to-one online lesson each week.

As an online teacher, you will be such an important part of their learning process. One-to-one lessons help students focus, reinforce skills, gain confidence and experience a global perspective.


Teach English to adults around the world. Help your students grow in confidence and achieve their personal or professional goals.

You could be teaching English to adults from all over the world!

You may be teaching professionals who want to progress in their careers, young adults who want to gain a place at university, or anyone wanting to achieve a personal language learning goal.

Teaching adults

Teaching adults offers the flexibility of small group and one-to-one classes. In group classes, you’ll help students gain confidence with their conversational English. Classes are small with between 5-8 students and cover different everyday topics.

In private lessons, the content is tailored to the student’s goals. Your one-to-one support will help your student focus. They'll benefit from instant feedback and your undivided attention. Learn more about teaching materials
