“I have nothing but positive things to say about the training I received. My teacher always managed to keep our sessions engaging without losing sight of the end goal (preparing me for speaking English in a professional setting for future management roles). I definitely feel more confident about my language skills.”
– Sachin, Engineer, Software Company
“I have English lessons every week. Today I am much more fluent, and I have definitely learned a lot. My teacher is a great coach because I can cover many topics with him: business, culture, negotiation, presentation, communication. This has been one of the best investments in my career progression.”
– Ashish, Technical Director, Manufacturing Company
“This was an excellent session. I considered my English very good but on attending the Masterclass I realised I was missing out on nuances and was guilty of ‘fossilisation’ errors. I am extremely happy to have started this because as you say there is always the next level.”
– Teena, Assistant Manager, Design Industry
“My humble background has always fuelled my ambition. But my spoken English often made me feel ‘less equal’ in my peer group. When I came across SpeakEng I thought who best to learn spoken English than from a British teacher! It was a no brainer for me. I must say my tutor is the best I ever had. My secret weapon to be the best in life. Thank you.”
– Seema, Ph. D. , Senior Scientific Executive
I have had lessons before from other companies and have not had good results. However, it’s a different story here. The teacher I got is fantastic. He has many years of experience and yet seems so fresh and energetic every time he teaches. The one piece of advice I would give anyone considering language lessons is a good teacher is many times better (and thus better value for money) than an average one.”
– Kunal, Senior Consultant, IT Solutions
“Thank you so much! I’m ever so pleased with the scores I received in my exams. They were my highest yet! My tutor has been wonderful, which is reflected in the grades I attained. Working with a British teacher feels really cool and gives me a different kind of confidence compared to others. My school teachers definitely notice the idioms and sentence structures that I use.”
– Rushil, Class 10 Student
” Getting the right campus placement, especially one with MNC, can make a big difference. I want to have an edge over others and SpeakEng gives me exactly that. Being a native British speaker, my teacher is extremely competent in the technicalities of the language. The oral side (of lessons) helps me with the practicalities of using my language skills in an effective manner. The best part is this learning will never go waste.”
– Priyanka , College Student
“My business is international and having confident spoken English helps me secure more clients. The return on my investment in this training has been manifold. And it’s not just that my improved English is making a difference in my young family. My kids frequently comment, ”Dad, your English is so different from others.” I feel confident in guiding them in this life skill which, to me, is truly invaluable.”
– Ahmed, Entrepreneur
“I have a fantastic teacher. She goes beyond language training and helps us develop as effective communicators. Classes are varied yet focused … I am given an appropriate amount of homework. I am making progress much more effectively than when I have had lessons in the past … I also really enjoy the lessons. I feel like a global citizen with my British teacher.”
