  • 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.

    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.

    All of our courses are taught on a 1-to-1 basis with a native British English tutor. This allows us to put the individual learner at the centre of everything we do. Each course is unique and is designed to be highly relevant and focused on precisely what you need in order to achieve your study goals. Our tutors use a range of quality textbooks, interactive web-based resources and bespoke in-house materials to produce the right course for you.
