What our homes schooled students say:
"Studying abroad with EF Language offered me the hands-on guidance and language immersion that I was looking for. Allowing me to better improve my elementary Spanish into a business intermediate Spanish. Though my online high school offers languages, the study time and interaction is limited, hence , why I pursued this education with EF."
"My experience with EF’s Learn a Language program in Tokyo, Japan completely changed my life. From the friends I made, to EF’s phenomenal staff helping me to learn the Japanese language and traditions, has not only made me a better person, but enabled me to bring my new found knowledge to my professional career. I’ve always been passionate about Japan, and Education First made my dream of “Living like a local” a reality. Japan and EF will always be a part of me and I can’t wait until my next adventure with them."
