Perfect Cuppa English® courses are more than English lessons. Each course is personalised to you, based on understanding what you need & then developing practical ways for you to be more confident in English language in everyday situations; whether they are formal or informal, everyday or business.[br][br]
The sessions are flexible to fit around your schedule & take place when it suits you. We help you understand British culture & feel settled in London.
We are available to meet you in most parts of London, but book your free consultation to discuss. We travel to meet you at your home or office.
We can meet in the convenience of your home or at your office. [br] Book your free consultation to discuss your requirements.
Sessions can be flexible depending on your needs, fitting around your schedule during the day or evening.
Perfect Cuppa English® specialises in training adults in private courses, so we unfortunately do not currently offer courses for children.
If you have a group of friends or colleagues who would like to learn everyday English or about British Culture together, then we can set up conversation courses for a small group (maximum 8). [br]
We recommend that Business English, Grammar & Pronunciation coaching courses are for individuals only, so that the course can be personalised completely to your specific needs.
We recommend that you have a minimum level of pre-intermediate English in order to get the most from the courses. If you’re not sure about your current level, then please book your free assessment.
Even advanced levels benefit from our courses, as you learn more about contemporary use of English, British specific phrases & culture; making you more effective in communication.
Absolutely! That’s the benefit of working with you individually. It’s personalised to you & we can make sure we help you learn exactly what you need.
When you book your free consultation I will talk to you about your learning needs & then recommend what’s required. That might be a short intensive course or a longer course with regular sessions. Usually we have a minimum booking of 10 meetings.
This will depend on your needs, your location & which course you are booking. After your free consultation, I will develop a full recommendation with fees, which we agree before we start. Longer courses attract a discount.
We ask clients to pay for the full course fees by bank transfer or cash, in advance of the first meeting. There is a cancellation policy (see next question “What if I need to cancel a meeting?”).
Occasionally you may need to cancel a meeting, you’re ill, away with work or on holiday. You can cancel a meeting up to 48 hours before the start time without paying; otherwise it needs to be paid in full, as a lot of the preparation happens in advance of each meeting.
The local discovery walks generally last 1.5 hours. Babies & children are welcome in a pram & buggy.
Yes, that is possible. The walks are gentle & relaxed, but if you need specific support, please email or phone us to discuss your requirements & we can adapt the tour to your needs.
English weather can sometimes be hard to forecast, so the walk will happen, even if there is some rain or snow, so remember to bring walking shoes & an umbrella! The walk will be rearranged to another date if there is very heavy rain or snow. Unfortunately we cannot refund money for walks, because of the time spent creating a personalised walk for you.
If you cannot make the date arranged for the walk, you can rearrange it to another date up to 48 hours beforehand, otherwise it needs to be paid in full.
We develop personalised walks based on what you would like to know & see in the area, and costs depend on the type & length of the walk. Usually they last a minimum of 1.5 hours.
