WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
CECILIA PEÑAS, STUDENT TEACHER
I was accustomed to being bored in classes, both in Spain and in other countries like Ireland or UK. Those classes always followed the same method. But Learn YOUR English’s teaching method was different, and in my opinion, much more entertaining. When you take classes you feel like you learn more because you are more interested and engaged.
CARLOS LOPEZ, STUDENT TEACHER
Leo is the best teacher that I have met. He gave me a lot of food for thought and he gave me the key to learn real English colligations. If you wanna sound natural like a native speaker, you should know about this. After he showed me what it was about, I started to think like a kind of matrix, all those structures crossing my mind. Now I'm going back to Colombia with the best food for thought that I have experienced and with a pile of motivation to keep working on my English.
Learn YOUR English is a different school with a different way of teaching, which makes it a more interesting and special learning experience. The teachers care about my English skills and my improvement. Also, I can feel how hard they are working to teach us to learn how to study language, which I appreciate a lot. In the end, I can just say that I really enjoy taking these classes. Thank you!
