Digital ELEA (English Language Experience and Adventure) is a 5-day online English language programme focused on developing real-world English communication skills through project-based learning.

As part of Digital ELEA, you will enjoy ten hours of English language classes based on the theme of ‘Fixing the Future’. Students will be separated into group virtual classrooms, with a maximum of 12 students per group.

You will use the 'Zoom' platform and enjoy all the features of this learning environment including interacting directly with your teacher, working in smaller groups or pairs with your classmates through ‘breakout rooms’, using screen annotations, voting in polls and sharing your screen when giving your ideas. Your teacher will have plenty of experience of teaching virtually and may also use other online tools to complement your lessons.

All of the Digital ELEA teachers are qualified as a minimum to the standards of the British Council for the Teaching of English in the UK.
The classes on Digital ELEA are not traditional language lessons! Our theme will give you the chance to explore many topics such as the environment, technology, the media and society - through and using the English language.
