Welcome to our FAQ section. This is where we hopefully answer all the common questions our students or future students may have about our online English lessons by Skype.

Is Grammar really important?

Yes. It is not only important to speak English fluently, but also to speak English correctly. Therefore it is necessary to study English Grammar. In our Skype school we focus on grammar through practice, as we do believe that learning grammar by rote achieves very little.

Are Skype lessons effective?

Online English lessons by Skype can be as effective as in-person English lessons. The only limitation is that the teacher is not in the same room as you. On top of that, Skype lessons give you more flexibility, you can schedule them when it suits you best.

What teaching methods do you use?

We use communicative language teaching method. All aspects of English language are taught using real life situations. The training materials are based on the latest tutorials, which are accompanied by individually designed exercises and assignments. We are constantly working on improving our teaching methods.

How can I cancel online lessons?

There will be no charge if you cancel with at least 24 hours’ notice. We can reschedule the lesson at a time that is convenient for you. Lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice will be charged at full lesson price. Please contact us to notify of any cancellations.

What equipment do I need?

  1. Computer, tablet or smartphone.
  2. Fast internet connection. It helps if you sit close to the router. If weak WiFi signal, try using a cable to connect directly to the router – it will improve speed and make your connection stable.

  4. In our opinion, the use of a quality webcam will also improve your learning experience.
