WHAT IS IT?

EB is designed to enhance students' thinking skills, real-world knowledge, and language proficiency through the use of authentic English in authentic contexts. With 13 levels of difficulty, EB aims to help students not only improve their English language skills but also forge an enlightened and global consciousness in preparation for the challenges of the 21st century.

Learning Goals

The learning goals of EB are to:

  • develop English language skills
  • broaden students’ horizons

Benefits for Learners

Students are immersed in an authentic language-rich environment, simulating real-life contexts. Learning is enhanced through a dynamic approach involving a series of short and relevant listening, reading, speaking and vocabulary tasks.

As students progress through the levels, they will also improve critical thinking and self-management skills. Students will be able to use English to understand, think and respond.

In addition to extending students’ English language skills, and enhancing understanding of different writing styles and text formats, EB also facilitates the exploration of local and global issues.
