You need to actively speak during the class and hence will speak English fluently. You will be free from fear and gain confidence in speaking.
  • Children learn to speak without textbooks, vocabulary lists, or grammar rules. Yet, they learn to speak English with a perfect accent and excellent grammar.

Our course is certainly a boon to them. They will gain vocabulary for their day to day life and know the grammar of the language naturally..
  • Continuous corrections do not help you learn English. It is impossible for you to learn from every correction and you will lose confidence. Instead, our  teacher will pause the conversation from time to time and point out areas you should improve, that is,  sounds in  pronunciation, grammar mistakes, better vocabulary, etc;).
