Hi! My name is Francis, I'm from the UK, and I'm the founder of Last Minute English.

Last Minute English creates online video courses to help you improve your spoken and written English, with a particular focus on English exams like the IELTS.

I'm a qualified IELTS Examiner. I have been living in China since 2011, helping students to get high scores in their IELTS exam. I believe that understanding is the key to success in the IELTS exam, so my IELTS courses teach:

1) HOW the IELTS examiner decides your score

2) WHAT you can do to meet the IELTS examiner's requirements

I'm also a keen language learner, and have achieved fluency in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. If you are interested in learning beginner Chinese, check out my two Chinese courses- you can even try one for free!
