What is distance learning of English?

  • Distance learning of English means that we teach English online via the internet. Communicate with (and see) your private language teacher as if he were sitting in the same room.
  • You always talk to a real teacher, an experienced tutor who also corrects your mistakes. (Unlike e-learning, which is a self-study method, using the internet instead of a course book.)

  • Adapted to your objectives and level: we will analyse your needs and specific problems as well as your current knowledge of English and adapt your individual English online lessons accordingly.

  • Maximum flexibility and efficiency: when we teach English online, we adapt the programme to your availability, with the possibility to reschedule. Standard duration is one hour (60 min.).

  • Available for everyone: whether you want to learn professional English for your current job, new career opportunities, speaking skills for your holidays, help with your English exams at school or the IELTS, etc.

  • Qualified native speakers: our tutors for your virtual English lessons have an official teacher’s qualification: a degree in teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL), a DELTA or a CELTA diploma.

“To prepare for IELTS, I wanted to take some distance learning English lessons. I compared many language schools that teach English exercises online and I chose the English Academy in Belgium. This was the right choice. My English teacher was a real expert, and this showed in my excellent IELTS test results. It was easy to have virtual English lessons from home.”

“The lessons were very well prepared, covering a large variety of interesting topics, vocabulary and grammar as well. My teacher considered my needs and the subjects I wanted to talk about. Not only I benefited from her skills, but I feel even more motivated to continue learning English. This is the best result a teacher can realize. I couldn’t thank her enough.“
