It is a full course of English (conversation, grammar, accent, writing) in 6 stages, which ends with full proficiency in English at the C2 level. Having completed this course with a native speaker, you communicate in English as fluently, as in your mother tongue. As per our experience, if you start at A1 level, it takes approximately 2 years to reach full proficiency level, provided that your learning is intensive.
Online English Solutions LTS™ At Online English Solutions LTS™ all lessons are individual, 1×1 with a teacher. The teacher is at your disposal at all times and devotes 100% of his attention to you.
Learning English in English allows you to begin to think in the foreign language. This way you break the language barrier quickly. Learning with the use of your mother tongue - on the contrary, makes you dependent on communication without the use of English. Learning English in your mother tongue slows down the process of mastering the language. Our students quickly discover that by using our teaching tools - they begin to communicate in English even if they have never done it before. That is why, our lessons take place basically without using Polish.
Our classes look as follows. You sit in your room with your computer, you log on to the Skype and you meet your teacher online. The teacher is with you all the time and you talk on Skype. You learn to speak, to understand and you pick up the correct accent. At the same time, you perform exercises using the interactive blackboard and the teaching tools provided by us. Class after class, you ability to speak, write and understand English goes higher. We are inviting you to see our free trial class where you will experience yourself our teaching method completely free of charge.
The lessons are available for 28 PLN for 45 minutes or 21 PLN for 25 minutes. The lesson takes place at the time you choose. Your classes are with the same teacher who knows you and follows your progress.
There are no other people in the group. Each lesson is 1x1 (individual): you and the native speaker.
The free trial lesson lasts 30 minutes.
Children can learn English online even better than adults. As you know, children are very fond of spending time with the computer. Kids have a great time learning English online. With us, kids learn English instead of playing in computer games or browsing the web. We prepared specific lessons for children, arranged in such way that the child treats class as fun. At the same time, the child absorbs knowledge and learns to speak English. It is worth remembering that it is best to learn a foreign language at a child's age.
Such requests take place very rarely. Based on our experience, students become friends with the tutors. However, if you request so, it is possible to change a tutor. We are here for you and not you are here for us.
Yes, you can learn English on the Internet, very quickly indeed. In our program, we put emphasis on speaking. You can hear the teacher very well and the teacher can hear you. The teacher works with you individually to break the language barrier. The teacher corrects your mistakes. There is no better way to learn a language than to work 1×1 with a native speaker. The sound quality is the same as if the student and the teacher were in the same room. What's more, research has shown that people get less stressed during online conversations and find it easier online to engage in dialogue in a foreign language. Of course, learning to speak on the Internet is only effective if the lesson is taught with the teacher rather than with a computer program. That is why our lessons are taught entirely by the teachers.
Of course it is possible. With the use of interactive blackboard, we teach full grammar curriculum. Our grammar curriculum is similar to those that some people know from standard lessons. However, our 1×1 method with a teacher provides much better results. That is because 100% of the teacher's attention is focused on the student. Moreover, the multimedia teaching tools allow for quick and painless learning.
Of course, that is why we are here. Detailed step-by-step instructions on how to start lessons with us in less than five minutes can be found on our website https://betterenglish-elts.com/book-free-lesson

Yes. These exams follow an established pattern and consist of solving specific types of tasks. When preparing for school exams we use tasks and texts from previous years' exams. As in the case of preparation for the First Certificate, we solve with the student the tasks used at a given exam, we redo the exercises, we teach to write a dissertation based on the text read. We start by reading slowly, in a simplified way, then as soon as it is done on the exam. We correct errors, check written works and prepare to solve tasks. Of course, we cannot guarantee the result of the exam, but we can greatly increase the student's chances for the expected result. Learning for a particular exam allows us to make maximum use of the remaining time to prepare for its passing. And yet, the knowledge and skills gained stay for life. It often happens that after passing an exam, a student willingly continues learning English with us.
There is no need to use cameras during our lessons. The important thing is that you can hear the teacher very well and the teacher can hear you. In our method, the computer screen is used as interactive blackboard. We display exercises and other teaching tools and you use them. The teacher gives you access to learning tools and observes your progress on his screen.
The course is very personalized, but it is conducted according to a plan. During a free trial lesson, we ask you what course you are interested in. We check whether you are more in need of conversation, or grammar, or perhaps a special vocabulary needed for a particular profession. The lessons are conducted according to a plan, at a certain level, appropriate for the given student. The course is conducted according to the student’s individual progress. After the material has been mastered, the person moves on to the next level until he or she reaches complete fluency level in spoken and written English.
