Our first school was opened in 2001 and thanks to its huge success we now have a second. Both schools offer a range of courses to young learners, teenagers and adults. No matter what age you are teaching, you will benefit from English First’s 40 years of experience and comprehensive course materials which are popular with both students and teachers alike.

We take care of our teachers, making sure they have all they need to do an excellent job and have a fun time at the same time. Emphasis is placed on on-going teacher training and a high level of academic support. Our schools have cutting edge design with computers in the classrooms and digital interactive white boards, helping you bring your classes to life like never before. The digital material blends perfectly with EF’s award winning course material backed up with flashcards, posters, activity libraries, songs, DVDs and much more.
