Ways of learning

From this Summer we will offer two different ways of learning: online and in the classroom.

  • IN CLASS AT ENGLISH ACADEMY: We have redesigned our classrooms to allow for social distancing and smaller groups, with each student working on their own desk with their own space.  All classrooms and common areas are disinfected before and after each lesson and all students and staff are required to disinfect their hands upon entry to the building. 
  • ONLINE IN A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM >>> Classes are taught on the educational platform of ZOOM - a real virtual classroom with an interactive whiteboard, with visual, written and verbal communication with the teacher and other students in the group, the opportunity to raise your hand, work in groups, where students can watch videos , listen to pronunciation and music exercises, send files, take tests, share links, video and audio.


Over the last few years English Academy has been awarded the highest status with the British council's examination partnership programme - platinum status for IELTS exam for registering the most students with the British Council in the whole of Bulgaria for IETLS.
