Our Ethos

Different to other English schools, our foundational principles rest on the deep understanding of how the brain acquires a language. Today, it is easy to sign up for an English course or work with a teacher who did a short course in English teaching. Taking a short course or relaxed lessons every now and then is not going to set you on a path to improving your English.


At The English Square, we believe in learning with individual attention, in a collaborative way (in small groups) and a lot of practice. It is not enough to learn one-on-one with a teacher. It is also not enough to learn in a group. This is why we strongly encourage selecting our MONTHLY package whereby you dedicate to taking weekly lessons and actively contribute to 2 group lessons per month.


Activate your English by watching TV shows, videos online, doing imitation exercises, writing journals and blog posts. Bring energy to your lesson and be willing to give to the discussion. Discuss what’s been on your mind, your opinions and invite your teacher into your world. We are here to see you grow! Let’s start speaking.
