We work hard to make your learning experience:
We take the time to make sure you understand and master what you are studying. We teach the English content and skills you need to improve your life. We give you lots of practice and feedback so you can feel confident using what you've learned outside the classroom setting.
We offer custom-designed courses that reflect your needs, whether they are for informal conversation or formal presentation, accent reduction or writing, listening comprehension or English for special purposes, and more--whatever you need. We teach you what you need to know in different situations, such as how to do well in a job interview, what do do when you need a doctor--anything that comes up.
We are flexible. We offer classes that fit your schedule. We can have lessons at English Advantage, in your home, at your workplace, or online. We teach what you want to learn, at your level and pace.
Our instructors use a variety of methods and activities to make learning interesting. We help you feel comfortable with your experience so that you'll look forward to your next lesson.
