Live Online General English Courses is a Speak English Institute company. We specialise in delivering live online English classes using a virtual classroom. With over 20 years experience in teaching English both in person and online, we have taken the time to develop and test our courses and we guarantee a unique and professional approach to helping learners improve their English in our virtual classrooms.

Our online General English courses focus on teaching all four language skills; speaking, listening, reading, and writing and we also incorporate grammar and live feedback. It is extremely important that students are given timely, constructive and positive feedback on their language skills since research has demonstrated that this is one of the most important ways of making progress in a language.  Research also shows that when learners make mistakes and receive corrective feedback from experienced teachers they acquire more vocabulary, grammatical structures and confidence (Ellis, 2009).

Our online English courses also prioritises speaking skills. We know that the main aim of the majority of students is to become fluent in the language and also to achieve a good level of accuracy.  This is why we keep group sizes to 8 or less, so students have the opportunity to practice speaking as much as possible, just as if they were in a face2face classroom.
