Lessons & Learning
All our teachers are trained native English speakers with extensive experience in teaching English as a foreign language to adults and children. Several have taught business English and many have their own families so know exactly what children like and don’t like doing!
This depends on the number of lessons and activities you take. We encourage our guests to speak at least 2-3 hours per day and to practise their English when they’re out and about in London. As a one-to-one or private English lesson is much more intense than a group lesson in a language school, you can make rapid advances with just a couple of hours a day.
Most of our guests prefer morning lessons but our teachers are happy to work round your preferences.
