Courses

Our courses are offered in two main categories – Social English and Business English. Under Business English, we offer the General, CORE, and Writing courses.

Our 2- or 3-day Communication Workshops are conducted for companies, covering a variety of customised topics.

The Business EN General course is centred on conversations for the workplace (from careers to marketing), whereas Social English course on daily conversations (from cuisines to travelling). These are speaking classes, and the language components of listening, speaking, and reading are the same.

Each course level consists of 30-hour blocks.

Private 1:1 courses consist of 15 to 20 classes (1.5 or 2 hours per session)
Small groups courses consists of 15 classes (2 hours per session)

Classes can be done once or twice a week, or every day.

We also have open classes whereby students commit to 5 classes each time.

Yes, select the courses that you want to do. They can be done concurrently or one after another. Students have combined the Social English and Business English CORE courses together, as what seems to be the most popular match.

Yes, we provide intensive learning whereby private classes are conducted on a daily basis, up to 3 classes / 6 hours of private study a day.

Yes, simply attend the first class with the coach of your choice before deciding if you will continue the rest of the course. Charges are just for the one class.

Of course! We welcome any feasible customisation you might require even after a few classes have been taught.

We also welcome your honest feedback about your classes at any time throughout your course.

We do not provide student visas or letters of invitation as our students are usually already living or working in Singapore. However, you could study with us intensively on a tourist visa. A course can be completed in just 8 days through intensive coaching.

Yes, Certificates of Achievement with the course(s) and number of hours completed will be presented to students at the end of the course.

For full payments, the deadline for your course completion is 12 months from the date you started your first class. Classes may also be transferred to other suitable students before this time.

Group Classes

We start group classes as soon as there are two or three students who fit the following:
• Coursework (only for Business English GENERAL / Business Writing / CORE)
• Proficiency level
• Schedule

To facilitate faster formation of classes, it is possible for just 2 colleagues or friends to form a small group class.

There is no fixed timeframe, but we do our best to form them quickly. To get started immediately, do the private coursework for flexible scheduling and customised coaching.

Coaches

Our experienced coaches are from Singapore, the UK, and the US. Please refer to our coaches’ bio.

Our local coaches are effectively bilingual (English, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese). Please refer to our Teaching Philosophy for more details (link).

In the course of your study, you might have one or two suitable coaches allocated to you. This way, you learn from the best of both worlds, as coaches with different key competencies could attend to your learning needs.

Scheduling

Our teaching hours are from 9:00am to 5:30pm on weekdays, and from 8:30am till the afternoon on Saturdays. We do our best to fit to your preferred schedule whenever possible, from early morning bookings to lunchtime and weekend sessions.

Our executive students usually get special time off office hours from their management in order to attend classes earlier in the day, during working hours (early mornings, during lunch breaks, or late afternoons are common time slots).

We limit giving evening classes as learning/teaching is best when the sun is shining!

Yes, we do have new start dates for different courses every month. Please enquire with us if you would like us to start a class just for your company or group.

On-Site Classes

Yes, we go to your office or meet at a quiet cafe so long as it is a conducive environment for learning. On-site fees apply.

Postponements

We have many executive students who travel frequently. A 24-hour notice will be required for class postponements. However, for group classes it’s best to inform us as soon as you know, so the other students can decide to go ahead or postpone the class altogether. In this case, we go with the consensus of the majority. Students who need to travel often are best suited for private classes where they can be postponed quite easily. Students who do a no-show or arrive late will have their classes / time forfeited.

For private class students, postponements can be arranged at any time with a minimum notice period of 24 hours. Small group class students will be able to do their make-up classes with the next batch of students whenever possible. However, it’s best to attend all your classes to avoid missing what you would have learnt with your current group. Group class students may also join other small group classes based on invitation by the coach. Additional private make-up classes will be charged normally.

Payments

Payments must be made in full or before the start of the course. We prefer bank transfers or credit card payment via Paypal. Cash and cheques are also accepted.
