Accreditation by the British Council is the recognised quality assurance standard for English language teaching in the UK. The British Council inspects organisations offering courses in English as a Foreign Language at regular intervals. Those that meet the agreed high standards of quality are accredited by the British Council.Accreditation provides students with an assurance of quality. Our courses have been accredited since the introduction of an accreditation scheme for providers of English language courses.You learn English in your tuition sessions with your teacher but also in many other ways too. You learn though talking with your teachers and with your new friends outside lesson time and also, if you are on a homestay programme, with your hosts. Of course, you learn, too, as you go into shops and visit places of local and national interest.Learning with EJO is both effective and enjoyable!We make the most of your stay in England by building your confidence in using English. Our teaching is always centred on you and your learning needs. Learning activities provide opportunities for you to use practical, everyday English. Classwork is always based on a class size of maximum sixteen students. One-one-tuition is obviously designed on an individual basis.We use course books as a resource during some lessons as well as authentic, real-life material such as newspaper articles, radio and TV programmes and recordings, poems and films. According to the type of course you have chosen, objectives will be achieved though pair and group work, role-play, discussions, presentations, interviews and surveys.Learning English in England means that you experience the idiomatic and everyday language used by native speakers. We offer you maximum opportunity to practise everyday English both during your programmed tuition sessions and outside them. We choose our teachers very carefully for their experience, professionalism, friendliness and enthusiasm; in fact for their overall suitability for the types of courses we offer. Our teachers have qualifications appropriate to the course they are teaching, meeting British Council accreditation requirements.We attach the greatest importance to providing for your safety and well being as appropriate for your age, background and the type of course you are on.Accommodation we provide will be suitable, will meet the requirements of the British Council accreditation scheme and will provide a safe and secure environment.If you are staying in homestay as opposed to residential accommodation, you will live as a member of the household. Our representative visits all our homestay accommodation and we check each home according to British Council criteria. Our homes are warm and welcoming and we don't place more than one student with the same first language in a home at the same time unless you particularly ask us to do so.In both homestay and residential accommodation, we will offer you a well-balanced diet, taking into account any reasonable dietary requirements you may have.At the start of your course, we give you relevant and useful information on points of English law and safety as well as information about the locality in which you are staying.The directors of EJO are all qualified teachers of English as a Foreign Language with many years experience of these courses. As members of English UK, we are in close touch with new developments in English language teaching. We plan our courses with great care. We spend time with our students and our members of staff and actively encourage feedback which we use as a basis for planning future courses. We ask every student to provide written comments on the course before returning home.
