Chat With Support Online

Do you teach to children?

Sure thing! For children under 14, we offer private English classes tailored to their learning pace. For teenagers aged 14 and above, we provide options between General English group courses and Academic English courses, catering to different needs and interests. To determine the best fit for your child, we invite you to visit one of our branches. There, you can discuss your child's specific requirements with one of our training coordinators who'll guide you to the right course.

Can I study English for free?

At the moment, we don't offer any free courses. But you're more than welcome to drop by any of our branches to meet our teachers and training coordinators and get a feel for what we're all about. We do, however, offer free trial classes. Feel free to contact us for available dates and more details.

How many students are there in a group?

Quality training matters a lot to us, and that's why we make sure our group classes are personal, with no more than 10 students each. On average, you'll find about 7 to 8 students in each group. This small size means our teachers can give everyone the attention they deserve and make sure there's plenty of chances for you to speak up and practice.

Do you provide student accommodation?

Yes we do provide student accommodation. We have partnered with Yugo and ESAW which both provide affordable accommodation in Dubai. To learn more about pricing and conditions for student accommodation, please get in touch with is directly.

Do you train company employees?

Absolutely, we offer corporate training for companies in Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah, helping numerous employees across the U.A.E. enhance their English communication skills. There are a couple of ways employees can boost their English with us:

1. Any company employee is welcome to join our group or private English courses at our branches in Dubai or Ras Al Khaimah.

2. Alternatively, we can conduct training directly at your company premises for a group of employees, typically coordinated by your HR department.

Are lessons academic hours or full hours?

Our lessons are a full 60 minutes long because we're all about maximising your study time. Unlike the shorter academic hours that last only 45 minutes, we stick to the real deal. So, when we say a class lasts for 2 hours, you're getting a full 120 minutes of learning. No shortcuts here!

Do you prepare students for the IELTS exam?

Yes indeed, we provide IELTS preparation courses in both Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah, available as group classes, private sessions, or even online to suit your preference. Plus, we're proud to be an official IELTS Testing Venue, in collaboration with IDP and the British Council. We host the paper-based General and Academic IELTS exams in Dubai, typically twice a month on Saturdays.

Do you accept international ESL students?

Absolutely, we do. Our student community is vibrant and diverse, with ESL international students from South America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. We're not just about the courses; we offer long-term study programmes and assist with accommodation and visa support to make your educational journey as smooth and enriching as possible.

How do I apply for an English course?

1. Start by completing our free registration and Level Test to figure out your current English level.
2. We'll give you a call to learn more about what you're looking for and to assess your speaking skills.
3. Pick a start date that works for you and take care of the course payment.
4. That's it, you're ready to begin your English learning journey with us!

Do You Offer Free trial classes?

Yes we do. We occasionally run free trial classes on weekdays. Please contact us or visit our Dubai branch to to learn more about our trial class dates.

Do you provide student visas?

Absolutely! We offer both 3-month and 6-month student visas. If you're looking to apply for a student visa, you'll need to enroll in an intensive General English course for a minimum of 12 weeks with us. Just reach out to us to start your student visa application process. We're here to help you every step of the way!

Where are your teachers from?

Ensuring our teachers meet the highest standards is a top priority for us. Our teaching team comes from English-speaking countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, Canada, and New Zealand. Each teacher brings not only their qualifications but also a rich experience of at least 3 to 4 years in teaching before they join our team. But that's not all – every single one of our teachers is a native speaker, guaranteeing you authentic learning experiences.

When can I start my language course?

For group courses, most of our courses offer the possibility to start on any Monday, depending on the group's availability.
If you choose to take private classes, you have the choice of when to start studying and your schedule.

When do I need to pay for my Course?

To join the course, it's necessary to pay the full amount before your start date. We suggest making the payment at least a week in advance to secure your spot. To ensure you get a place in the group, paying earlier is always better. If you can, aiming to pay 2 or 3 weeks ahead of your start date would be perfect.
For international students on a student visa, full payment might required before.
