MEET YOUR TEACHER BEFORE DECIDING TO START LESSONS 


3-LESSON TRIAL PERIOD


IN YOUR WORKPLACE, HOME

OR PUBLIC SPACE


1.  MEET YOUR TEACHER BEFORE DECIDING

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.  


2.  Tailor made course design

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.


3.  Additional online tools

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.


4.  Money back guarantee

Try our lessons risk-free.  If you are not happy within the first 3 lessons, we will give you a full refund


5.  HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS

All our teachers have a minimum teaching qualification from the University of Cambridge and 3+ years teaching experience


6.  pay monthly - no upfront payment

overview

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.  


qualifications

Academic Director  

  • BA Economics & Finance

All teachers (minimum): CELTA teaching qualification + 3 years experience

finance to english

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.

international business

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. 

- Managing Director, Asahi Beer Europe


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.

- Investment Fund Manager, Daiwa Securities


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!

- Hiromi, Housewife & mother


As with many Japanese, I was not good at having a conversation with English speaking people. However MB’s dedicated lessons have greatly improved my communication ability in English and now I have much more confidence

FAQ

1.  When do lessons take place?

Anytime you want from 07:00-21:00, 7 days a week

2.  Where do lessons take place?

We come to you, so anywhere that is convenient for you.  Usually people have lessons at their workplace, their home or sometimes a public space.  We can hold group lessons of more than 4 people at our premises.

3.  How long is each lesson?

It is your choice.  We recommend 90 minutes, but you can choose anything from 90 minutes to 8 hours per day.  

4.  Who will my teacher be?

We will match you with a teacher based on the preferences you select in our online needs analysis. You will then meet your teacher before deciding to start lessons.  All our teachers are native English-speakers and have a minimum teaching qualification from the University of Cambridge, plus at least 3 years teaching experience.

5.  Can I have a free trial lesson?

 All our courses have a 3-lesson money back guarantee, so you can try us risk-free. If you are not happy within that period, we will refund your all your remaining course fee.

6.  Can I change my teacher?

You will be matched with a teacher according to your preferences, plus you will meet them in your free consultation before deciding to take lessons, so requesting a change is unlikely. But you will have 3 lessons to try our lessons risk free, so you can change in this period if necessary. After this period, it is possible, but only in exceptional circumstances.

7.  What if I'm busy one day?  Can I rearrange the lesson?

Yes, if you tell us 24 hours in advance. You can either rearrange for another day/time that week if your teacher is available, or you can add it on to the end of your course.

8.  Can I change my schedule after the course has started?

Yes, this is possible, but we may also need to change your teacher, depending on their availability.

9.  What if I need to cancel my course before I have finished all the lessons?

If your company is sending you back to Japan, we will give you a full refund.

10.  Can I pay with my credit card?

Yes, but we will have to charge an additional 4% fee. This is because of the extra costs we incur.
