Students' Voice

  • Learn English with TED Talks

    The talks Kara recommends are always interesting and give me new insights and perspectives. I am always amazed at how quickly and accurately she answers any questions I have. I learn a lot through the lessons, not only vocabulary and expressions, but also increase my knowledge in the field. Her feedback and writing corrections after the lessons are also very helpful. Thank you as always!

  • Speak like a native (intermediate ~ advanced)

    Mike always offers me good quality lessons, not cutting corners although I've been studying with him for over 2 years. I really appreciate him giving me the confidence in English and keeping me motivated. very reliable as a teacher and a person! There are a wide range of topics in this lesson, and you can learn natural expressions that native speakers use in everyday life. The conversation with him is not fun but also educational, so I can feel a satisfaction all the time. His materials, feedback and notes are all worth it, and I try to go over them again and again to sink in. Thank you as always!
