The type of courses we offer:

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General English

These English lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival English - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, English culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular English examination.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business English

These lessons in English are meant for those that feel that learning English would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone English and e-mail English skills for communicating, as well as survival English if a short visit to the country is needed.

The common factor is the objective of this meal: to share a moment with loved ones while giving thanks. Click here to learn more about Thanksgiving!
