Founded in 1996, EF English Live has been at the cutting edge of language learning for nearly two decades, having been the first to pioneer a 24-hour teacher-led online English course .
Backed by a world-class team of academic and technical experts, plus 2,000 certified online English teachers, our mission is to use technology to create a fundamentally better way to learn English.
Because we’re part of EF, teach English and have live teachers and online lessons 24/7, we changed our name from EF Englishtown to EF English Live. Our name celebrates our live, native speaking teachers who are at the heart of our learning method.
Along with our vast network of English teachers available in every time zone, over 30 nationalities are represented in the main EF English Live office hubs in London, Johannesburg, Shanghai and beyond.
