Englishtown and EF

Since 1965...

EF education first big logo | englishtown.com logoEnglishtown, the world's most advanced online English school, is a part of EF, Education First. As part of EF, we are backed by decades of teaching experience and have 34,000 teachers and staff in 50 countries.

EF was founded in Sweden in 1965 by a young entrepreneur named Bertil Hult. The concept was straightforward: bring local high school students to England to learn English. It was a simple but revolutionary business idea that led EF to become the world’s largest private educational organization – with more than 400 schools and offices worldwide.

Learning the smart way

Over the last decade, Englishtown has invested more than US$50 million dollars to develop the EFEKTA™ system – an innovative English learning method engineered to deliver maximum results in the least time.

The backbone of the Efekta system is our state-of-the-art language iLab, designed to accelerate language acquisition. With over 1,500 hours of interactive multimedia tutorials developed by EF linguists and a business English curriculum powered by Harvard Business School Publishing, the iLab is one of a kind.
