My Experience Helping Learners Improve Their English!

I have to make it very clear that each learner is different and has unique needs. Below are 4 categories which describe the types of learners I have helped.

SERIOUS ACADEMICS/UNREALISTIC GOALS

The learner has only just begun learning English, however, they expect to speak like a native, including their accent, vocabulary, idioms, slang, etc. They always claim to have read what my services offer, which is conversational English practice, correction basic grammar, role play, proofreading. I am not an English language professor who specializes in the analysis of the English language/linguistics.


My aim is to specialize is to support learners to improve their general English as well as idioms, jokes, slang. I always advise the learners who speak minimal English to practice consistently outside of my classes, speaking and listening with native speakers, as well as regular meet-ups in the coffee shops, library, and so forth.

DATING

I receive messages daily from potential learners who at first seem like they need genuine help to improve their English, however in time I realized it is just a way for them to pursue me! This annoys me so much reasons are :

  • Time-consuming

  • Disrespectful

  • Money loss

FRIENDSHIP

Learners especially those who are new to London, simply want to form a friendship with me. The Majority of the time their English is perfect and they work in London and communicate all day in English, they choose my service to simply befriend someone from London and to learn more idioms, jokes and slang due to them having spent a large amount of time solely practicing formal English.
