All backgrounds, ages and levels

Following an introduction session, our teachers work with you to create an individual learning plan specific to your English needs. We ensure that our students learn English as a means of communication for everyday life so focus on pronunciation technique and speaking confidence. 

All our classes take place on Zoom and the links are easily accessible on your dashboard. Classes can be recorded if you wish. All our materials are original and we integrate our own YouTube videos, online supporting courses and blog posts to provide a rounded learning of English. We have an easily accessible lesson record of all materials and links used in class. 

Classes can last from 30 minutes up to 2 hours and can happen as regularly as you wish. We offer discounted prices for multiple weekly classes. We book in all your classes for you and you have the flexibility to cancel or rearrange your classes with 24 hours. 

You’ll get full access to all our online supporting courses too!

All resources used in class, including videos, documents and audios are uploaded to your own Google Drive folder, which is easily accessible for you and your teacher.
