Our team of teachers

A team of professional teachers and consultants for communication in English.

International team of teachers and consultants

Our team, are professionals certified to teach English as a foreign language, meeting the high criteria of the internationally recognized evaluation scheme “Cambridge English Teaching Framework”.

Learning centred approach

Our teachers are focused on the needs, interests and goals of our students. We design course programmes so they are engaging and tailor-made for our students. Teachers facilitate the learning process and help students to develop their learner autonomy. Making practical tasks part of their lessons helps students to be engaged and motivated in the long run.

Experience and qualifications

Both professional experience and qualifications enables our teachers and consultants to be your partners for communication in business. They combine English lessons with practical tasks so your lessons have an immediate impact on your workload as well as improve your English skills for the future.

Continual development programme

We believe our continual professional development programme is a key element of providing quality teaching. Our teachers are trained and empowered in internal and external training as well as in our special mentoring programme. Monthly mentoring sessions help each teacher to cope with the challenges of teaching and help us to have an overview, hence quality control.

WE love teaching English
