|In the early 1960s, a young swedish man named Bertil Hult went to UK for the first time. I was a student who always had had difficulties in st`udying because of dyslexia. But surprisingly in UK he learned English with not that many difficulties. So he became sure that traditional teaching method in classes is not always effective and decided to establish a small company named Europeiska Ferieskolan (European Holiday School or EF) combining language education and traveling abroad. Bertil made a programme that provides field study outside a class and named it Sprakresor, that is to say Language Travel. Today, field study is the foundation of modern education. It has been philosophy supporting all EF programs for 50 years.
