Kaizen Connect®

This 3-phase cycle is applied continuously to your language learning:

P1: Production

Instructors use a range of techniques to draw and facilitate production from learners.  Linguistic raw data, taken from actual speech, is carefully recorded in their Student Learning File.

P2: Insight

The collected information is reviewed and assessed by our Academic Team - Instructors, Academic Liaison & Academic Coordinator - in order to assure that each learner is progressing at an optimal pace.

P3: Elevation

Each student's Learning Plan is then adjusted as needed, taking the Academic Team's analysis into account. Learners are made aware of their biggest challenges and advised on how to take their speaking skills up to the next level.

Kaizen Connect is an agile learning system developed and used by E-QIP for more than a decade. This framework is designed exclusively for learning a new language, with one central purpose: to help you learn faster.

We curate live, joy-infused online language lessons, focused on building speaking confidence fast!

Lesson Structure




You are encouraged - and given the space - to speak as much as possible. Our instructors listen actively, then offer feedback on improving natural expression and flow. Talking spontaneously and smoothly are the goals. 

Now you're speaking easily!



You build your linguistic toolbox and practice elements of language from form to usage. Instructors increase awareness of your challenges and help you eliminate them. 

Now you're speaking clearly!




You focus on topics, and scenarios to build confidence handling both more casual and increasingly complex interactions. Our instructors host and facilitate conversation, introduce communicative strategies, and offer practical feedback.

Now you're speaking confidently!




You activate your language in various real life situations. Our instructors shift from coaches to mentors, reviewing practical forms and strategies, then take you beyond the classroom. Operating autonomously is the goal.

Now you're speaking freely!
