About

At EP, we use a communicative approach to teaching English as well as French. This means focusing on your speaking skills through interactive lessons, noticing gaps in your learning and reacting to them in real-time, teaching that goes beyond textbooks, and creating opportunities to practise your language skills outside the classroom in real-life situations. We take time to understand each and every student's individual needs and offer a customised solution. EP teachers are trained in this approach from their first day, so you can have the same wonderful experience at all levels at all our EP locations.

When you move to a foreign country to study, your accommodation becomes a big part of your study experience. It is a place where you come back to each night, a place you can call a home away from home.  At EP, we choose safe and comfortable homestay options to help you make the best of your stay. You have multiple options to choose from, full board, half-board, bed and breakfast style, or even homestay with an adult. You will be living in the home of a local resident with a comfortable, safe environment where meals are prepared for you. It is also an amazing opportunity to practise your language skills with your host! The average commute from homestay to school can be 45 to 75 minutes by public transport. 

Remember, all accommodation options are based on availability. So, please make sure you check with your representative. 

With our residential & shared apartment, you can experience Yonge & St. Clair’s great location in the heart of Paris. It is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars and only five minutes walking to St. Clair Subway Station.
