English schools in Asia
EF English First is the largest privately-owned language school in the world and Indonesia with more than 40 years of experience in language training. EF English First has now had more than 65 schools in all major cities all across Indonesia, including 1 in Batam - which is EF English First Batam. Batam is an island located 12 miles off Singapore's south coast.
EF English First Batam offers a complete range of English courses for all age groups – from kids, teens to adults – at all levels. Courses include General English, English for Young Learners, Business English, Conversation Club as well as International Exams Preparation Course (for TOEFL*, TOEFL*, IELTS™ and other English proficiency tests).
In spite of those, EF English First Batam also offers on or off-site Corporate Language Training to accommodate specific needs of corporate clients. Our Corporate Language Training consists of four different programs from which clients could choose – namely General English, Business English, Job-specific English and Customized English Training Package.
Our curriculum does not only include native teachers-led classes, but is also enhanced by on-line tutorials at our innovative language labs (iLAB). In addition, students can also join our fun-driven Life Club activities – such as coffee clubs, conversation corners, dinners and parties – which are held regularly to facilitate our students to learn English outside the classrooms.
All the courses we offer make use of our own learning materials (both text-based and computer-based) which were exclusively designed by EF English First’s dedicated Academic Research and Development Team based in Cambridge Massachusetts. Our text book series have won numerous awards, including being selected by the BBC as a basis for their Radio English series.
Courses start regularly, nearly every week – although the exact starting dates for each course may vary between one school and another. A variety of flexible course schedules and durations are available.
