You never stop hearing that you must learn how to speak English in order to be able to communicate with the rest of the world.
Being able to speak English as a foreign language is a personal and professional asset – so don’t miss an opportunity to learn it!

The Cost of English Lessons
What is the normal hourly rate for English tuition?
Taking a language-learning course comes with a price. Learning foreign languages is becoming trendy as more and more learners see the benefits of being a linguist.
Whether you want to improve your English for personal or professional reasons, you’ll have to make the same decision: which teaching organisation to choose.
As you will probably know, a Google search for “English courses” will produce a number of tutoring companies and private organisations.
A quick glance at websites such as Wall Street English will tell you that studying English can be costly.
So what are the alternatives?
Turning to a one to one tutor is a good option.
You will find courses for beginners, intermediates and for advanced speakers who wish to improve their language skills.
Superprof offers a large choice of qualified and experienced private tutors. Read their tutor profiles and take a look at what other students think in the reviews section.
Prices vary depending on the level of the student (beginner, intermediate or advanced), as well as the length of the course and the tutor’s level of qualification.
So, why not search for a tutor in your area and see if you can be persuaded by the other students’ reviews.
Prices for one on one English classes vary from city to city.
Tutors in Paris charge far more than tutors in the French countryside.
It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the general tariffs in your nearby towns before making a decision!
