I am committed to providing an excellent learning experience for my students.  That’s why I am constantly asking for feedback and making improvements.  Here is what some of my current students said about their courses.  More reviews can be found on Trustpilot.

I’ve truly enjoyed the course so far. It makes me think in English and makes me take the time to write in English.


The programming of the course is stupendous, I love the dynamics it has.


What I like the most is that there are no long lists of vocabulary or verbs to memorise, just the necessary things that a speaker is supposed to use every day; moreover, I like the activities in each section, in particular those ones that let you connect with the other students.
