FAQs – English lessons

Thank you for thinking about English lessons with MB English Plus. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions – we hope they are helpful!

How many lessons do I have to take each week?

It is your choice! Some students choose to have just one lesson a week, others have lessons more often. Typically, lessons are either 1 hour, 1.5 hours or 2 hours long.

I want to follow a course and sit an exam – how long will that take?

It depends on the course, and the student!

We have found that a minimum of 3-4 hours per week is needed, and it is possible to complete a course in about 10-15 weeks. As we are flexible, we respond to the needs of the student.

I am only in the UK for a very short time – can I still take some English lessons?

Yes! You can choose which topics you would like to study and which skills you would like to improve. We will design a short course just for you.

Why don’t you give an address on your website?

We teach English lessons at my home in Loughborough, and so we only give out the address when lessons have been agreed with the student, after we have met and discussed the student’s requirements.

So, how and where do you first meet your students?

For people wanting to take lessons in person: For reasons of personal safety for both the student and the teacher, we arrange a first meeting in the town centre, for example at one of the coffee shops. There, we can discuss the student’s requirements and makes plans for lessons as necessary.

For people wanting to take lessons online: We have a discussion via Skype, WhatsApp, or another online communication app.
