Our Managing Director, Sunny Burns, worked as the head of HR and Development for a Singaporian company. He was frustrated about the generic English courses that companies were being provided. Sunny found that companies were great at teaching general and business English but had no real understanding about the duties that each employee had to personally improve on. Our trainers are not your average English Teachers. Our trainers are all Native English speakers with experience working for an international company, multilingual and specialised in various subjects including Public Relations, Sales, Customer Service, Marketing, Recruitment and Account Management

We recommend that employees study a mixture of both private and group classes
Online group classes are suitable for a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 20 students. Normally group classes will be divided either into proficiency level or department.
Private classes are suitable for employees who need extra attention. We recommend that employees study in both group and private class to ensure maximum learning.
