Private Groups


Follow the Pronunciation and/or Intonation courses in a closed group with friends or colleagues. Flexible timetables and groups of 2 to 10 participants

Private groups are ideal for companies, couples, friends and family groups who would like to study together. Participants can be logged in in separate locations, or together in one place. If the group is monolingual, we’ll adapt the courses to cover specific areas of difficulty.

“The course is absolutely amazing. I have learnt so much and the teacher is really enthusiastic and helped me with any questions. I have learnt to approach English speaking from a new angle, improved my confidence in speaking and understandings not only in the pronunciation but also in the British culture. Definitely recommend it for anyone who want to take their pronunciation to the next level. :)”

Yes, if your group needs practice in specific areas, we will adapt the course to focus more on these.

This is flexible – we recommend at least one lesson per week to maintain continuity in the course. 

More intensive options are available, for example you can cover both levels in 1 week (20 classes) if you choose. 

Every attendee has access to the ebooks and audio for The Sound of English books. 

Additionally every attendee can use the online library of lessons for 3 months (1 level) or 6 months (2 levels) so there is plenty for learners to work with. 

Group courses are available 08:00-21:00 Monday to Friday and by arrangement on weekends. The courses can be taken weekly (the course will last 10-20 weeks), or intensively in the space of 1 week – the timetable is flexible.
