Some might say after 10 years it’s about time we provided a program specifically designed with teenagers in mind!
From our beginnings as an online language we thought that the English level of teenage students would not be high enough to get maximum benefit from a conversation based lesson. We also thought that teenagers would not have enough self confidence, life experience or attention span and commitment to speak with an adult in a conversational, free flowing manner.
Our experience over the last 10 years though has shown us clearly that we were wrong on all of these points! When teenagers have learnt with us they have done just as well if not better than our adult students. So we’ve tried to think of their specific needs as well as their parents in designing a program that is affordable, enjoyable and useful from a school and future life perspective.
The program includes a daily group lesson focused on subjects of general interest as well as lessons on homework and grammar. In addition to daily group lessons there’s a a monthly, private, 30 minute, 1 to 1 lesson between student and teacher to cover specific topics of interest and issues beneficial to the student.
Hopefully, parents will also see the benefit of their children having regular speaking classes throughout the year with a native English speaker to compliment the English being studied at school.
