Are you ready to learn with me?
I'll be happy to answer your questions and point you in the right direction.
You can work with me in 3 ways:
(1) sign up for my self-paced Video Courses or (2) join a Live online 1:1 Coaching program (3) join a Group Workshops
Learning English online offers several advantages compared to learning in the traditional classroom environment.
Firstly, they adapt to your busy lifestyle. Secondly, it allows you to practice English whenever you have time.
Online Courses allow you to learn at your own pace, concentrate on intricate sounds, review specific topics as often as you like, and improve all four language skills at a steady pace, anytime, anywhere.
The English Coach offers individual coaching sessions to fit your specific needs and provides you with precious feedback from a native speaker.
If you prefer working in groups, you can attend our Group Online Workshops which are a fun way to practice speaking with people worldwide about specific topics scheduled every month.
Whichever option you choose, you will learn to fine-tune your ears to the rhythm and music of English and work on your pronunciation and accuracy.
Not ready yet? That's OK.
