Why Should You Choose Us?

We focus on getting students speaking in English – every day, every lesson for a whole week. We break down barriers, stimulate interest and transform students’ skills and knowledge into practical ability. We deliver our unique courses in your own country, in your own school, in a way that supports your teaching. By the end of the week you will see the dramatic difference we can make.


20 Years of Experience

English in Action 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. we only employ teachers who hold an internationally recognised teacher qualification (Cambridge CELTA; Trinity TESOL and/or BEd Bachelor of Education degree). We also hold frequent training days and conduct regular observations of classroom practice. We know the schools and parents invest in their children’s education and you wouldn’t want to pay for a course delivered by untrained/unskilled teachers.

“The teachers did their work with great enthusiasm and professionalism.”
First English Language School, Bulgaria

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!”
Grammar School, Serbia

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.”
Hoehere Bundeslehranstalt Weyer, Austria


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

High Impact

A week can make a huge difference, not just because of what is learnt, but because of the platform it provides for future learning. Our courses not only boost confidence, but also help to develop a positive attitude towards language learning – a memorable experience that will continue to have an impact long after the week has finished.

“Perfect! A highly memorable week!!!”
Handelsscule Eferding, Austria

Mother-tongue Teachers

All of our teachers use English as their first language. They are flown direct from the UK, which means that they are also able to provide recent and relevant experience of UK life and culture. Communicating with a native speaker helps bring the language to life.

“The teachers were a pleasure to work with and the students simply loved them!”
HS Rohrbach an der Lafnitz, Austria

Real Communication

EiA courses incorporate a variety of age and level appropriate topics which are relevant and meaningful, and provide wonderful opportunities for genuine communication.

“A great teaching approach that motivates students to interact.”
Interlingua, Belgorod, Russia

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!”
Fundacji Szkolnej, Poland
