SKYPE LESSONS

Pronounce Languages also provides online Skype lessons to allow anyone, anywhere to enjoy our lessons.  Skype lessons are charged at the same flat rate of £35 per hour; you are of course still entitled to the one hour free trial session.  Approximately 20% of our business comes from our online tuition, with students in France, Belgium, Italy, Spain and other parts of the UK. 

WILL SKYPE BE AS PRODUCTIVE AS A FACE-TO-FACE LESSON?

Of course!  We want to assure you that even if you cannot make a face-to-face lesson, you will still receive the same excellent standard of teaching online.  Our tutors are specially trained to get the most out of Skype.  Skype provides a very effective classroom environment; student and teacher can still see each other and interact, and the comments box provides the perfect medium to give feedback and corrections without interrupting the flow of the conversation.  Notes are also available after the lesson, making it easy to revisit what you have learnt in your lesson. 

what if there are connection problems?

There are occasionally glitches with online systems and we wish to reassure you that should there be any connection problems from our side, due to our tutor's computer or internet speed, you will not be charged for this period of time.  You are however responsible for ensuring that your microphone, sound equipment and internet is correctly set up. 

I'm a complete technophobe...

Don't worry - our tutors are experienced and can guide you through it.  Setting up a Skype account is simple and completely free, so there will be no extra cost to you. 

what else do I need to know?

You may also need access to an email account in order to receive documents from your tutor for use during the lesson.  Payments can be made via PayPal if you are based internationally to avoid extra charges for bank transfers.

Susie is friendly and positive. She has boosted confidence and strengthened skills in both speaking and written Spanish for both of my daughters. Her sessions are very relaxed and enjoyable, my daughters felt they were meeting with a friend. She helped them with grammar concepts they were interested in, going into greater detail than school. She dramatically improved their confidence in speaking, to the point where they were having casual conversations in Spanish. She was excellent at meeting their individual needs, adapting her sessions with ease and enthusiasm. She kept me up to date with their progress, listened to my concerns with understanding as well as bright, useful ideas. She did invaluable work preparing the girls for their exams, with brilliant results. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

As a Czech student I do not have many possibilities during the school year where I can hear proper British English. I am so interested in how to communicate with a native speaker and how to practice my English skills. This is the reason why I chose English lessons via Skype.
Susie offers high quality lessons. She is a kind, flexible and willing teacher. English is more fun and I can be sure that all of the information I get is correct.

We’ve been receiving English lessons with Susie for nearly a year now and we’ve improved so much! Now we have also Skype lessons, due to relocating, which is also very convenient when we are back in Spain. Susie is really charming and professional and she always prepares our lessons conscientiously with new exercises, especially those to strengthen our weaknesses. She is busier and busier lately with more and more students, so hurry up and book!
— Cristina & Adrían, Madrid (Adult ESL learners, FCE & CAE qualifications)
Susie is great because she tailors her lessons to what you want to learn and the pace at which you pick things up. She always has a good mix of activities planned and is very flexible. Highly recommended!
