Learn English Online




ELS has developed LiveClass, a digital version of our internationally recognised Intensive English Programme. The LiveClass follows the same learning objectives and standards that we have developed for close to 60 years as a leading English language provider. Taught by our qualified teachers, now fully trained to teach online, students can expect a fun, engaging and effective learning experience!

All the above elements come together to enhance overall student learning by allowing more time for student participation, reflection, collaboration and peer interactions.



  • 6 Weeks Per Level
  • Classes & Activities held Mondays to Fridays


Structure & Speaking Practice

Learn to communicate accurately and effectively in English through fun classes that teach Listening, Speaking, Vocabulary and Grammar. Practice using English in meaningful situations through activities such as group work, role-playing and class presentations.

Reading & Writing

Develop your reading comprehension, increase your reading speed and develop key writing abilities. Reading and Writing lessons include group discussions and writing practice.

Customised Learning Support (CLS)

Small group of classes where teachers will focus on your learning needs to allow you to become more confident in discussions and learn skills such as problem-solving, research, critical thinking and English communication.

Assignments and Group Work

After each class, your learning will be supplemented by assignments that allow you to practice applying your new language skills. Group work may also be assigned to encourage peer learning and collaboration.



Your teacher will assign you a pre-lesson material to read, practice or watch in preparation for your LiveClass discussions.

You will join your teacher and a small group of 5 – 12 students online. Your teacher will lead the lesson by outlining the lesson objectives and facilitate your class discussions based on the pre-lesson material assigned. Your participation and progress will be recorded and monitored by your teacher.

Your language learning will take place 5 days a week. From Mondays to Thursdays, you will attend 3 classes daily:

  • Structure & Speaking Practice (SSP)
  • Reading & Writing (RW)
  • Customised Learning Support (CLS)

Fridays are reserved for group activities and remedial classes with ELS teachers.

Your teacher will assign you homework to do either on your own or in a group. You can download your homework from ELS Online, an online platform where you can also connect with your classmates for discussion and with your teachers for feedback and error-correction.

  • making sure that teachers and staff are available online from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm should the students need more help or further consultation
  • providing more interactive and guided learning materials that students can use for additional practice and self-study.
