Who are Skype individual classes for?
Any speaker of English who would like to improve their pronunciation, fluency, intonation or modify their accent. The classes are suitable for people living anywhere in the world as they are taken via internet.
How does it work?
The first class is an assessment where the teacher will test your current level in English pronunciation and show you the areas you can improve. Your teacher will then design a course plan specifically for you based on your needs.
The exact balance of your course will be decided by your teacher and yourself. Most students benefit from a mixture, but some students have more specific needs, so certain areas are focused on more.
