About our one to one English language lessons in Brighton
# All our courses use an interactive, communicative approach. You will learn new grammar and vocabulary which is essential for you to make progress but more importantly you will use your new grammar and vocabulary in speaking and listening exercises.

The balance of each of these skills depends on you. Tandy will discuss your needs and make sure that your one to one English language course is right for you.
