1 2 1 and SKYPE 
Do you want to study 1 to 1 or via Skype? 
Lessons offer a fast track, tailor-made and flexible way to improve your English. With no other students you have all the focus on you and the areas you need to work on. The teacher will give you a detailed needs analysis at the beginning of your course and use this to design a tailor made course. 1-1 classes offer great flexibility where we can fit around you and your busy lifestyle and commitments. Lessons can be at our classrooms or in your home or office. 
Skype classes can supplement these as they are helpful if you travel or are returning to your country and want to continue lessons. We have many 1-1 classes via skype from students in the UK and abroad.

Lessons are usually 2 hours per week although some students choose to supplement this with a 1-1 class. Lessons are interesting, fun and engaging with teachers who know how to make learning enjoyable while focussing on learners needs and making sure they improve in all areas. 
We use a range of published and authentic materials in our general English classes and aim to fit the course programme to the needs and wants of the attendees in the class.
