LONDON, August 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

We asked 500 of our students two simple questions: where do you study with EF Englishtown now, and where would you like  to learn?

Answers to the first question weren't that surprising: 70% currently studied at home, 15% in bed (surely with questionable productivity) and 12% managed to study at work. However, when we asked where our students would like to do their studying, the responses changed dramatically. They ranged from the pragmatic - 30% want to study on their way to work and 21% on a plane - to the exotic: 30% want to study on a lounge chair on a beach in the Maldives and 20% whilst relaxing on a slow boat. Especially creative responses included the desire to study in the Tibetan mountains, at Times Square or the Grand Canyon and, well, on the moon!

Learning on public transport and beyond: the world is your oyster

The common denominator, whether the answer was practical or aspirational (or off the wall!) is that people want to fit learning around their lifestyles. Now they can.  Today EF Englishtown is launching an Android tablet app to complement the existing EF Efekta 13 iPad app launched in 2012.

There are a lot of language learning apps on the market, but ours is different. It isn't just courseware, it includes teacher-led classes that set us apart from our competitors and help students to communicate at a much quicker rate. The app also functions online or offline so progress isn't interrupted when you go through a tunnel, when the seat belt sign comes on or when you've managed to get away from it all to a truly remote location like Mount Everest base camp!

If this story piques your interest, why not see what all the fuss is about? If you would like a free trial of the app, simply email EFEnglishtown.Press@ef.com and we will set you up.

It's EF Englishtown, and it's based wherever you are. The Android tablet App launches today.
