Our teachers
The advice that I give to my students is to always work on themselves and be confident in their English, even when they feel they are making mistakes. It is very important to have confidence and to always try your best. The students that really improve are those who push themselves and are not afraid.


Teaching style

We take great pride in hand-picking highly experienced teachers who are passionate about teaching the English language and creating an amicable atmosphere in the classroom. Most of our teachers work full time at ES, which helps ensure that students have continuity in their learning experience and lessons. Our dedicated teachers are committed to working closely with students, in order to help them achieve their language goals.

Our teachers

All our teachers are qualified, native English speakers, with many years of experience teaching English as a foreign language. We also have a high ratio of Diploma and Masters trained teachers at our school.

Our teachers plan exciting, interactive lessons so that students are motivated to learn, and our courses are interesting, relevant and enjoyable.
