At ECL we have established creative understanding and reproduction of literary texts by our students, as one of the main means of learning English from the beginning to Proficiency level. We chose this method because literature is an effective means to cultivate the language and develop the criticism and imagination of students. Activities such as reading tales, books of classic literature adjusted for young children, writing a Book Report, poems and short stories focus on:

a) cultivate the language 
b) understand the incoming information and
c) use the language as a means of expression
