MEET YOUR TEACHER BEFORE DECIDING TO START LESSONS
3-LESSON TRIAL PERIOD
IN YOUR WORKPLACE, HOME
OR PUBLIC SPACE
Complete an online needs analysis and have a free consultation with your teacher, before receiving a personalised course design approved by our Academic Director. You can then decide whether to start lessons or not.
Our philosophy is to focus on your biggest needs. For some learners that might be speaking and listening, and for others it might be improving financial vocabulary or writing emails. Whatever it is, your course will be designed to best help those areas.
99% of a learner’s time is spent outside the classroom, which is why we provide all our clients with online tools to allow them to review and practice their lesson content and do further self-study whenever and wherever they are. All of this is measurable and monitored by your teacher.
Try our lessons risk-free. If you are not happy within the first 3 lessons, we will give you a full refund
All our teachers have a minimum teaching qualification from the University of Cambridge and 3+ years teaching experience
MB Languages is the result of the research by our Academic Director, Mark Bailey, at University College London (UCL). Combining his findings with a background in financial markets, 11 years teaching experience in 3 continents - including 6 years in Japan - he felt London was missing an affordable and high-quality, needs-based language service.
All teachers (minimum): CELTA teaching qualification + 3 years experience
After originally studying Finance and Economics Mark later worked in sales and futures trading in the financial district of London before realising he was much more interested in people and travel. This led to 6 years teaching in Japan, where he met his wife, Yuko, who is now part of our team and the reason we provide bilingual English/Japanese customer service.
Leaving Japan and starting a new life in London together was a difficult decision, but with its vibrancy and international culture, it has proved to be the perfect environment to make their home. MB Languages is the result of their passion for travel, people and language learning. All of our staff have similarly colourful backgrounds and international outlook, which we believe is one of the key factors in the quality of our service.
My teacher is excellent. My speaking skill has dramatically improved since I started lessons with MB. What differentiates my teacher from others is that he can listen to students very carefully and patiently, and can then correct my words and phrases very efficiently and effectively. He can teach a wide variety of the topics such as daily issues, business, arts, sports and so on.
My British colleague told me that my English has improved. One of the differences is that I can request how to learn and take suitable lessons, especially for the financial sector. I can enjoy role playing various financial business and everyday life situations.
I'm sure my teacher is the best English teacher that I ever met. His lessons are well thought-out, useful and really interesting!! He has sharp eyes for understanding students’ weak points and offers appropriate lessons! In addition, he is punctual, which is important for busy mothers and serious students!
