We are a small, highly experienced group of English teachers who are dedicated to assisting people to improve their fluency and ability in English language.
English courses for all levels of ability, from complete beginners to advanced learners. Improved English skills creates greater opportunity for career advancement and social integration. All our courses focus on the four key elements of language; Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.
We plan as much learning as possible to be carried out in real life, everyday environments that are relevant and meaningful to our learners. Of course there will always be some class-based study but, let's face it, actually doing something that is a part of your normal life is much more satisfying and enjoyable than sitting in a stuffy classroom imagining theoretical situations. So, if we are going to learn how to book a ticket for a train ride, or fill out a form, that's what we do. We go out as a group to the station or the doctors and actually buy a ticket or enrol.
The good bit is that the destinations are chosen by our learners themselves, they tell us where they want to go and what they want to do. Trips must be free, or very cheap as some of our learners are struggle financially and cannot afford expensive trips. We want everyone to be included and not feel embarrassed. The only rule is that everything must be carried out in English.
HOW MUCH DOES IT ALL COST?
Nothing! All lessons are completely free and teachers volunteer their time. Fares and incidental costs must be covered by individuals. If you feel able, a suggested £5.00 donation per week is welcome to help cover administration costs. This is kept completely anonymous and is not obligatory.
