FAQ s

  • Where do your teachers come from?

    We only employ native English teachers from the UK. We do not employ American, Australian, Canadian or non-native English tutors. Our school is based in England and specialises 100% in British English via Skype.

  • How long is each lesson?

    Each lesson is 1 academic hour (45 minutes), but you may choose to take double lessons of 90 minutes if you wish.

  • How many lessons should I have per week?

    This depends on your level, study goals and budget. We usually recommend x2 lessons per week for most of our Skype English courses. You will agree a study schedule during the trial consultation with your British English tutor before the course begins.

He teaches with lot´s of energy and empathy! He really makes a positive impact and helps my son (year 2, international school) to improve his English. Thanks

    Maria G.

  • We like the way she is leading the lessons. The variety to present the language from the grammar to the reading and comprehension and use of english, exactly what Emma needs. Sometimes she helps Emma with her homework and Emma feels comfortable talking to Helen. Thanks a lot.

    Anna F.

  • Resume about my lessons and my teacher: I like to study English with Emma. She is very clever and open minded. She always tries to find an interesting material to our lessons and topics to discuss. We can talk about anything and she always notice my mistakes, tells me about them, record in a chat new words or new grammar constructions. Recommendations: It would be good if we implement dictionary test for new phrases and words once a week or once per 2 weeks.

  • Every lesson is better than the previous one!!! I ´m enjoying myself a lot. Being an advanced user and teacher means sometimes you don´t have a chance to speak English with people who can correct you. Jen is a great teacher, I really like talking to her.
