Learn English in Gold Coast

Reopened 22nd June, 2020

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce the re-opening of EC Melbourne on Monday June 22, 2020!

Our team in Australia have been working to ensure the maximum safety of our students and staff while guaranteeing the best possible EC experience.

To ensure the safety of our EC community and ease the transition into the classroom we will be offering a mix of online and classroom lessons:

• Monday-Tuesday 8:00-14:00: Full face-to-face lessons on campus
• Wednesday-Friday: Online teacher-led lessons and activities
Evening classes will continue online for students who still wish to study online full time.

Some of the key steps we are taking to guarantee student and staff safety include:

✓ Daily temperature checks for all who are on each campus
✓ Social Distancing measures throughout each campus
✓ Staggered start times and timetables
✓ Small class sizes
✓ Hand sanitizer available in each classroom and common areas
✓ Each centre cleaned twice daily
✓ Clear signage reminding of social distancing and the importance of sanitizing

We are keeping a close eye on state and national guidelines and will be sending further updates regarding how and when we will increase face-to-face lessons on campus.
