Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

"Great English Teacher

Jan is a great teacher, she understands what you need for making your English language better. I have been her student for about six months, and she taught me so much and now my English is really good. With Jan you save money and you learn in the best way ever. She loves what she is doing and she is very smart. I shopped a lot for a private teacher on the internet and in social media and I am so happy I found her. My English now is great and I loved my classes with Jan. The time went very fast and I learned more and more with her about the English language. Sam S, Los Angeles"

I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
