About Speak English Institute

Establised in 2013!

We are an independent language school specialised in teaching English. We do one thing and we do it well, that's teaching!

You'll love learning at Speak English Institute!

We are smaller than many of our competitors and this allows us to create an environment where everyone can get to know each other. We believe that this makes for a more focused and enjoyable learning experience.

Whether it’s a group course or private lessons, our experienced teachers will take the time to understand you and your goals. So that all our students can receive individual attention, we deliberately keep our class sizes small. The average class size is 8 and the maximum class size is 10, you won't find that anywhere else in the UAE.

Our teachers are trained and enthusiastic professionals who aim to provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning experience. At the beginning of each lesson we will identify key objectives for the group or individual. This allows us to provide a focused teaching style that maximises your time in class.

Our teachers aim to create a positive, fun and friendly learning environment that will challenge you. We try to be as supportive and encouraging as possible to help you feel at ease.

The minimum class duration is a full 60 minutes and can go up to 120 minutes. Many other English language schools include breaks in lesson time, shortening them by ten or fifteen minutes. We always strive to maximise your learning time.

A truly multi-cultural place to learn and practice English.

Established by two teachers in 2013, with faculty locations in the heart of Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah, Speak English Institute offers a personal and refreshing approach to learning English. Our student-centered programmes work to realise and achieve students’ learning goals, supported by experienced and friendly teachers who are all native English speakers, CELTA qualified or higher.

Smaller learning groups, averaging seven students, and a truly immersive curriculum, allow us to offer students the attention they deserve while ensuring excellent learning results.

We pride ourselves on establishing trust and creating an accessible learning atmosphere where students are empowered to ask questions and develop their abilities. Rather than overpromising or offering unrealistic ideals, we provide students with the tools for successful communication.
