Teaching Quality

Teaching Style

At ES we focus on the objectives, needs and aims of our students to plan their studies. Our approach to teaching English is ‘Learner Centric’ and our learners are encouraged to participate actively in class and to make suggestions about topics of interest to them.  We aim to promote learner independence and to take into account their feedback when planning our lessons.


All our teachers are qualified, native English speakers, and many have years of experience. We also have a high ratio of Diploma and Masters qualified teachers at our school. 

All our teachers plan fast paced interactive lessons so that students are motivated to learn and our courses are interesting, relevant and enjoyable. 


As part of our efforts to improve student satisfaction, we carry out regular teacher evaluations. This process helps to maintain consistent standards for high quality teaching.

Student feedback is very important to us and is vital to our success. Feedback is gathered from students throughout their course, via a questionnaire. 

In 2016, most students rated teaching at ES Dubai as excellent.
