One to One English student testimonial Spanish flag Mireia, Spain
"This is a school that I recommend to
all my friends who REALLY want to learn
English! It has all the ingredients: accredited
by the British Council, qualified staff, small groups, flexible schedules, very pleasant staff, and cultural activities such as pub nights, trips to museums and even events like Wimbledon tennis... The school is in a privileged position in the middle of London, Covent Garden, in a traditional English building convenient for public transport. To be a student at One to One English is such a rewarding experience. The atmosphere that you breathe in this location and at this school is outstanding!"

One to One English student testimonial Byelorussian flag Halina, Byelorussia
"The teachers are very qualified and professional with a high level of education. During the lesson they really help you improve your accuracy, fluency and pronunciation. The teaching system based on small groups gives you the opportunity to express your thoughts in English. After each lesson it is more easy to speak correct English without mistakes. I am very pleased with my progress, my English has become more fluent and I can express my thoughts better. I use now a lot of new expressions and I've got freedom of speaking. There is no comparison with other schools. It is in the best British educational tradition. It pays attention to every individual. It has fresh, nice, peaceful small rooms where you can concentrate on studying. Staff are friendly and helpful, you can feel yourself like in a good family. This school stimulates you to study English more and to know it better. I'd recommend One to One English to everybody who thinks about their future." (General English course)
One to One English student testimonial Spanish flag Albert, Spain
"I'd recommend One to One English to
anyone who wants to experience a real
English environment and who wants to get a
good all-round level of English, not just academic skills. In One to One English you'll find really good teachers who make the lessons interesting and who also help you to get to know your classmates better: in this school you are not 'just a number', learning and relationships are all conducted on a personal, individual basis. I think that in such an environment it's impossible not to improve your English!"

One to One English student testimonial Japanese flag Yukie, Japan
"Teachers are friendly and the teaching system is completely different from other schools. The teaching system is brilliant! Every lesson I have many phrases which relate to the topic so it is easy to remember them. Teachers pay attention to all students and I can receive feedback at tutorials. Some teachers speak Japanese, Spanish, French and other languages so I think they know the struggle to pick up languages! The staff are kind and friendly, they pay all the attention to all the students. I'm really happy to have lessons at this school." (General English and IELTS courses)
One to One English student testimonial Spanish flag Clara, Spain
"In my own experience since living
abroad, for me this school has been the
best. This is for several reasons: the
environment (the teachers are really friendly and approachable); the teaching system (where you practise everything, especially speaking); the small groups (maximum 6); and the social events programme. In my case, I did General English in a group as well as one-to-one lessons. In the one-to-one lessons I was able to go more deeply into those aspects which were most important to me, including Business English. For all these reasons, I'd recommend this as a school where you learn a lot while making good friends."

When I came here I couldn't speak, but now I've got confidence. I'm satisfied with my progress in 6 months- and so sad because it's time to leave this school!" (General English course)

"Courses are carefully structured to
maximise benefit to the student and to cover

"The teachers are extremely
professional and attentive, both from the
point of view of teaching and on the 'human'
side. In class there were a maximum of just 6 students, so we had plenty of time for individual explanations and corrections, and we were never bored during lessons. The General English coursebook is straightforward, practical and concrete. The school itself is situated in a small building right in the middle of London, 50 metres from Covent Garden Underground station. All the staff are most helpful and always wearing a smile. The atmosphere is very friendly and as professional as any other school I have visited in the past."

One to One English student testimonial South Korean flag Jin Suk, South Korea
"All the teachers are very kind and friendly. Especially some teachers are very good at drawing student out and leading the discussion. I think that making students to talk about the given subject is the most important thing. I really enjoyed learning in a very small group. There was enough time to express my opinion, I didn't need to worry about my mistakes because a teacher was waiting to correct my mistakes. They taught me British history and culture, as well. All students, teachers and receptionist are energetic and pleasant. It was really fantastic." (General English course)
One to One English student testimonial Italian flag Ludovico, Italy
"My teachers conducted
themselves with a professional,
serious approach while still being
polite and friendly, which helped me to settle in quickly. During the month I noticed a significant improvement in my English, in the grammar and especially in my speaking. The teachers helped by monitoring my progress day by day. This school is different from others: the classes with just 6 students allow the creation of a very friendly atmosphere, with interesting and stimulating lessons. This atmosphere allows you to take lessons serenely. The location of the school is excellent: in the middle of London and very close to the Underground."

One to One English student testimonial Chinese flag Raymond, China
"In Chinese we have a saying that 'it is best to do a lot of useful things in a short time' and One to One English helped me do this. You have plenty of time to communicate and you can ask for and get immediate answers. In university, I find my English sometimes not strong enough. This school has helped me to discuss my subject, and make new friends and get to know my old friends even better. The tuition fees are quite reasonable, the school is clean and comfortable, brilliant for studying in, but the important thing is the teacher-student relationship. You can speak to the course director in a frank and honest way, and if you've got any problem, the reception staff will help you. They're brilliant with their advice to me and genuinely friendly." (General English course)
One to One English student testimonial Italian flag Riccardo, Italy
"The quality of the teaching
staff is very high: they are
well-trained and demonstrate a high
level of professional commitment. My own progress has been really fast: after only a month I find myself speaking English at a higher level and without many of the mistakes that I was making before taking the course. The school itself is small and this helps create a 'family' atmosphere, with a very welcoming environment throughout the school, from the Reception staff to the teachers and the students. You meet people from countries all over the world who you can also get to know better through the social programme events organised by the school."
