    EF hello

    The definitive way to learn English

    EF Hello is a conversation-driven language learning app with each and every skill you need to learn English. Innovative. Intuitive. Comprehensive. Fun.

    We've worked with leading universities in Learning and Linguistics to fundamentally improve the way students learn English. Our conversation-driven content is hugely comprehensive and rooted in academics, pedagogy and hardcore science. Guided by our Academic Advisory Council, EF Hello offers a completely new, intuitive and extensive way to learn English.

    Technology at EF hello

    EF Hello is fully conversation-driven, bridging the gap between how we use English and how we practice English.

    English Proficiency Assessment

    Created with ex-NASA and Stanford engineers, EF Hello's English assessment ensures ability-matched learning with tailored content. Currently patent pending.

    Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence

    EF Hello is highly developed and underpinned by both Machine Learning and A.I. so it's constantly evolving.
