You are free to choose any frequency you want for your English classes by Skype. Most students have classes twice or three times a week but some have very intensive schedules to progress quickly (classes everyday) and some choose to have only one class per week or a few times per month whenever they have time.
Yes, all of our students keep the same teacher unless they have intensive classes or specifically ask us to have different teachers. We believe that students learn much better with one teacher who knows their level, objectives and interests, rather than always changing teachers and wasting precious time introducing themselves and explaining what their specific needs are.
You can have classes 7 days a week and 24 hours a day for all of our English classes by Skype. We have teachers living all around the world. Therefore, we will be able to find teachers for practically any schedule you want.
Most of our students choose to have 2 or 3 classes of 45 minutes per week, but you are free to choose the number of lessons per week and the lesson duration you want.
On the Internet, many bogus schools offer magical methods to become a fluent English speaker in a few days or weeks. We refuse to lie to our students. Becoming proficient in English takes time and your progression will depend on the amount of time you dedicate to English every day and, of course, your natural ability for learning a language. On average, if a student takes two classes of 45 minutes per week, it will take him/her 6 months to a year to see a significant improvement.
