Frequently asked questions

How much does tuition cost?


Fees can be found here. Fees for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) are from 65 GBP per hour.




What is the best age to start learning English?


The best time to start learning any language is today! In truth, there is no perfect age to start learning, the sooner the better. Typically though, children begin to learn English at around 4 or 5 years old - this is a great age as children’s brains are like sponges, remembering all new information easily.




How long does it take to become fluent in English?


To become fairly competent in English, enough to read, write and speak about some different subjects, you will need to be around B1 level. From zero level of English, this is about 420 hours of studying. So, the answer will depend on how much you commit to learning per week. A good estimate is between 2-3 years to become confident with English. To become completely fluent (native level), you would need to add another 600 hours to reach C2 level, which could take another 5 years.




Why is private tuition important when learning a language?


Private tuition is one of the most effective ways to learn a language. One of the biggest problems we find with students is that they have poor confidence and in many instances some critical problems with some foundational skills that create further problems. With a tutor, you get to work one to one with an expert who can help you hone in on these mistakes and to work on English in a safe and engaging atmosphere that is best suited to your learning style.




Where do lessons take place?


Lessons can take place wherever you like! Currently 50% of our tutors work online which makes it easier to study wherever you are in the world. Many clients prefer to have lessons in their home - we have a network of over 500 tutors in 15 different countries, so wherever you are, it is likely we have a fantastic tutor a short distance away. Some clients also take tutors with them on holiday, many of our tutors are more than happy to work abroad with you.




Do you offer foreign language tuition in other subjects?


Yes, of course. With a network of over 500 tutors, many of these tutors teach other foreign languages including French, Italian, Spanish, German, Mandarin and Arabic and many more.




Why are your English tutors effective?


Our English tutors are some of the most dedicated and driven tutors in this sphere. We handpick our tutor based on academics, work experience, excellent references and personal skills. For us, the chemistry between a student and teacher is undoubtedly one of the biggest factors in determining success. For every student, our team searches for a tutor who will push the student to new levels and quickly attain success.
