English language teaching and educational activities
We consider language certification an important and integral part of a broader learning process. We support language schools by developing educational activities that address issues of community concern and help students improve their language skills such as the Essay Contest and the EcoFans Network.
Research and international synergies
We conduct research projects on language learning and assessment, either independently or in collaboration with international certification bodies. The results of these projects are often made available to Language Schools and teachers through seminars and publications.
