What does English Online offer?

We offer students a flexible and totally customised online course, with a variety of classes and teachers to choose from.

With English Online, you can customise your study plan to suit your own preferences and study goals. You can choose to join:

  • 55-minute group classes with maximum 10 students per session – these classes include a set topic and focus on speaking and listening tasks. You will learn with other students at the same level as you, and you will receive instant feedback on your speaking, grammar and vocabulary. At the end of each class, the teacher will share valuable class materials with you for additional practice;
  •  25-minute private classes with our expert teachers – choose between private sessions with a set topic or book a freestyle private class and choose what you want to focus on. For a more intensive and personalised experience, you can attend private classes with your favourite teachers and learn at your own pace. Whether you want to learn about a set topic in a one-to-one setting or work on a specific task that is personalised to your study goals, we have the right private class for you! You will receive a report with personalised feedback after every private class you attend, which will help you track your progress;
  • 25-minute grammar or pronunciation webinars called Live25 sessions – these sessions are completely free and included as part of your subscription. You can join 4 of these sessions every month with an active subscription and use them as an opportunity for additional practice between your regular group or private classes. If you need extra help with understanding English verb tenses or  how to use intonation in a sentence, Live25 sessions offer you the opportunity to advance your knowledge.

Each class you book with a set topic includes access to premium online exercises that you complete before and after your live session with your teacher. These exercises will help you improve your reading, listening and vocabulary skills, as well as help you practice and revise what you have learnt after your class. To browse our available classes before you commit to a subscription plan, you can set up a free English Online account.
