New for summer 2017

Introducing EF Class Starter-packs for High School Teachers

Jump-start the new term in August with ready-to-use lesson plans to get you off to a great start!

We've done the lesson planning, so that you don't have to. Our starter-packs are collections of lessons aligned to the curricula of Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden which teachers can pick up and use with minimal preparation. We also have an international version for teachers in other countries. Just pick your pack, level, and topic, then you're good to go!
