How does EiA work?

Students learn the basics in their regular lessons but they often lack the chance to immerse themselves in the language.

  • We focus on getting students speaking in English - every day, every lesson for a whole week
  • We deliver our unique courses in your own country, in your own school, in a way that supports regular learning.
  • We break down barriers and build confidence that will help students in their personal and academic lives.
  • By the end of the week you will see the dramatic difference we can make

Years of Experience

English in Action (EiA) has led the way in pioneering English project weeks in schools. Trusted the world over, we have unparalleled experience in this specialist area and have provided successful courses for well over 100,000 students.

“Everything was well-organised and ran smoothly, and the parents were overwhelmed!”

Bundesgymnasium Amstetten, Austria

Professional Teachers

We know that our courses are only as good as the teachers who deliver them. That is why all our teaching staff have internationally recognised teaching qualifications. We also hold frequent training days and conduct regular observations of classroom practice.

“The teachers did their work with great enthusiasm and professionalism.”

Cost Effective

English in Action allows parents to invest in their child’s future at a fraction of the cost of an overseas study visit. Whilst refusing to compromise on quality, we believe it is important to offer students and schools great value for money, even when compared to local language schools and course providers.

“The students said EiA was more useful than a language week abroad.”

Independently Accredited

English in Action is regularly inspected and assessed for quality by EAQUALS (Evaluation and Accreditation of Quality in English Language Services). Accreditation by EAQUALS is your guarantee of our organisation’s compliance with rigorous international standards.

“The feedback from the parents was totally positive!”

Active Environment

English in Action project weeks offer an intensive learning experience. Participants are immersed in English for an entire week, building and reinforcing their knowledge and skills, manipulating the language and learning how to communicate with confidence and fluency.

“We now find the students are more confident and happier to speak English.”

Fondazione Sacro Cuore, Cesena, Italy

An English Environment

We create an environment where English is the natural language of communication. Using English becomes habitual, and students find ways of using the language they know in the most effective way.

“Even the children normally completely afraid of English tried to speak and enjoyed it!”

  • A boost in confidence and fluency as they use English intensively throughout the week
  • An enthusiasm that will last long after the course has ended
  • The reward of using English in front of friends and family in the end of course show

For The School

  • Freshly motivated students who are keen to use English
  • A visible improvement in learner confidence
  • A professional partner with over 20 years experience
  • None of the stress of an overseas study visit
  • Courses that are easily organised, short, intensive, effective and affordable
  • Happy parents who see the value of investing in their child's future

The lasting effects on learners' confidence and communication skills make the whole experience worthwhile for everyone involved. Teachers, students and parents alike all regularly vouch for English in Action's success and popularity with students.
