Our Courses Learning on EnglishCentral The core of EnglishCentral courses is the video player, where students watch videos, learn vocabulary in context, and then speak using the video as a model. Watch. Learn. Speak. Teaching with EnglishCentral Teachers have the freedom to set their own curriculum at EnglishCentral, and selecting a course and inviting students to study is easy to do. Our teacher tools provide an easy way to set students’ goals and track their learning. Teachers can also listen to students’ recordings, which makes assessing student pronunciation even easier. It’s that simple. EnglishCentral offers academic discounts to qualified teachers using EnglishCentral with students. We understand that students often have a limited budget, so we offer programs similar to the cost of a traditional textbook. We also offer free trials so that you can give EnglishCentral a try with your students. Visit us at our Web site: www.englishcentral.com 3
