English Improvers Online (A2/B1)
Boost your English to the level you need for the FCE Cambridge exam.
What you will learn
Let me get your English exam-ready on this course! Together, we’ll work on your direct language needs so that you can boost your English to the level you need to prepare for the B2 First Certificate in English.
Each week we will talk about a different topic and you’ll get vocabulary to prepare in advance for the lesson as well as a selection of authentic videos and articles in English. At the end of every lesson, I give you detailed personalised feedback on your English. At the end of each 4-week block, we dedicate a class to the areas that I have identified as needing work.
In weeks 1-3 of each monthly block, we cover a wide range of topics with specific vocabulary, listening and reading materials. In the final week of your block, you have a session focused on areas of English I have noticed need work. That means every lesson will be relevant to your needs, not a coursebook’s.
I’ll give you extensive skills training in your speaking, listening and pronunciation, and work on developing your exposure to real English. As well as helping you reach a high intermediate level, you will also learn to identify the areas of English which you need to focus on to help you advance.
A course that fits into your busy life
All live sessions are recorded, so if you’ll never miss a class. I also post all feedback and class notes in your virtual Google Classroom, so you also have the flexibility to study at a time that suits your schedule.

Who is this course for?
This course is designed for people with a high A2 or low B1 level of English who want to feel more confident in speaking English. If you need to develop your skills and communication in English, then this is the perfect course for you.
Have you been studying English for a long time but find traditional lessons ineffective? Are you impatient to get your certificate? Do you want a course that deals with your language needs directly, not a coursebook’s? Do want to feel more confident using English?
Then this is the course for you! I won’t waste time going over grammar structures that you already know and use correctly! Instead we’ll look at expanding your English by exposing you to authentic materials, increasing your vocabulary, making you more fluent, and working on your pronunciation. All of this combined will give you the confidence and skills you need to meet your exam goals.

My Intermediate Speaking Online course deals directly with the language needs of the group so there is not a fixed time frame, however we work through 12 monthly blocks. Students are normally ready to change levels after this period.
All online sessions are recorded so you can just catch up with the class at a time that is convenient for you.
I ask my students to give me 2 week’s notice if they can no longer continue with their course. I will always send you a reminder asking you to confirm if you are continuing. If you tell me after the 2 week’s notice period, there is a £60 cancellation fee which you can use towards 1 week of classes.
I only prepare students for exams which are a B2 level or higher, however the course covers all the skills you need in order to take an A2 or B1 level exam. If you have a very specific language goal then we recommend having private lessons. Alternatively, if you aim to take the Cambridge First Certificate in English (B2) exam, then my Intermediate Speaking Online course (A2-B1 level) will help you reach that goal.
