EDC will unveil its comprehensive English language instruction program—English for Latin America (ELA)—on October 3 and 4, 2012 in Cartagena, Colombia. The launch events will include a demonstration and discussion of ELA.
ELA builds on EDC’s experience with interactive audio instruction, which has enabled more than 40 million people worldwide to learn English. The program is designed especially for use throughout Latin America by young people ages 11–17 and costs a fraction of traditional and online instruction options. ELA can be used by students enrolled in school and by out-of-school youth. It also promotes teacher professional development.
