Skype classes 2018

Great news everyone!!!

If you have checked our website recently you may already have seen this. Scroll down for details!

  • 12-lesson courses available
  • 2 different levels: B1/B2 and B2/C1
  • Every Friday with 2 different timetables available: 16:45 – 17:30h or 18:00 – 18:45h
  • 9 students per class maximum!
  • All lessons have been designed by ES teachers to ensure maximum quality!
  • Limited vacancies!

These lessons are the result of the students’ petition of reinforcing the concepts learnt in class at home as well as the relentless introduction of technology in all aspects of our daily life. The advantages of online classes are multiple:

  1. You can learn English by attending a presential class guided by one of our teachers (who may even be your own ES teacher) from home
  2. You will improve your listening skills with the extra challenge of not relying on body language.
  3. You will improve your writing and summarizing skills, as you’ll contact the teacher in the ‘question time’ via chat.
  4. You will share the class with 8 other students who have your same level, and the answers to all the questions in the class, as well as the teachers’ written explanations, will stay in the chat for future reference.

So, what are you waiting for? Ask for information at reception in any of our schools before we run out of vacancies, the future is waiting for you!

Christmas words and expressions!

Hello everybody and Merry (almost) Christmas!

In a couple of days we will be celebrating Christmas and some of our students have decided to spend it in the UK! How great is that???? 😀

We know how traditions are different there (click here for more info) but there’s something we hadn’t addressed before, special vocabulary and expressions used these days! So I’ve prepared a little quiz for you to find out some of the most used. Continue reading “Christmas words and expressions!”

The UK and the poppy

Hello everyone!

Have you seen people wearing poppies on their clothes lately? Even though we’re in November it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving but with World War I.

Our teacher Stephen Murphy has written an article so that you can know more about the origin of this tradition. Read on! Continue reading “The UK and the poppy”
