Success Stories

We are helping 30,000 workers in Rwanda improve their English and hospitality skills, in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation and the Rwanda Development Board.

We are excited about the positive impact the training program is having on workers in the tourism and hospitality industry. Having skilled personnel remains critical in the service sector. The growing interest of learners in the program is proof that it is of benefit to them. We look forward to a sustained partnership to ensure that more people are well equipped with the much-needed transferable skills in the ever-evolving tourism and hospitality sector.

A Global Vision

As the world leader in language research and innovation, here’s how we’re setting the standard for language training around the globe.

EF Research Network

In our longstanding partnerships with leading academic institutions, researchers and linguists work together on joint projects, sharing research, data and best practices.

EF SET language testing

EF SET is the world’s first free, standardized digital English proficiency test, with test scores scientifically aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference and easily comparable to those of TOEFL, TOEIC and BULATS Broad-based English language assessment of large target audiences, e.g., all teachers or students of a country, is critical to understanding the true needs for any strategic language training initiative. This has previously been technically difficult and prohibitively expensive. We can now assist with this, and also continuously track progress of a group of any size, through the EF Standard English Test (EF SET).


Every year, EF compiles the EF English Proficiency Index (EPI) to measure adult English proficiency around the world and how it correlates with macro-economic and social indicators. We also map the world’s workforce English skills in a separate English Proficiency Index for Companies (EPI-c), as well as global student English skills in the EPI-s report.
