Design Your Career


As a subsidiary of YBM, YBM English Centers for Children (YBM ECC) was founded in 1992. It was the first major chain of private English schools focused on teaching English to young learners in South Korea. Since then, we have been fostering global leaders and dedicated to improving integrated English education.

YBM ECC provides a consistent and systematic approach to learning English for kindergarten to middle school age students as a leader in providing exceptional language education in South Korea. We focus on listening, reading, writing, and speaking by using an in-house curriculum for non-native English speakers. Our i-Learning program allows students to go home and practice what they have learned in class via an app.
