What is more – you will get an exclusive UNLIMITED access to for you to use 24/7 from the warmth of your home.

Why do we use the Direct Method? From our knowledge and experience of the Direct Method, we can assure you that it is the quickest and the most reliable method of teaching English and remembering new information.

What is it? It is a direct method created specifically to enhance your comprehension and speaking abilities in a pleasant but intensive atmosphere. The question-answer format of the lesson ensures that you are actively involved in hearing and using the language to a maximum. The teacher keeps the lesson moving swiftly in order that you learn to understand English at its natural spoken speed.

Speed is essential: A language is normally spoken at 180 words per minute. Say OK Online School teachers speak to the student at about 240 words per minute in order to make it easy for the student to understand English outside the classroom. Do not think: A language reflex comes from the mouth and not the brain. The student must learn to speak and understand without thinking.

Mechanical repetition: A quick reflex can only be developed by mechanical repetition.

The more you repeat, the quicker you finish: If the student repeats everything many times, he will finish his studies much more quickly.

Dictations: The dictations in the Method consist of themed passages, which cover all the recently learned vocabulary.

Certificate: At the end of the course, each student obtains a Completion Certificate.

The first people to live in Britain were hunter-gatherers, in what we call the Stone Age. For much of the Stone Age, Britain was connected to the continent by a land bridge. People came and went following the herds of deer and horses which they hunted. Britain only became permanently separated from the continent by the Channel about 10,000 years ago.

I've been teaching English in the UK, Italy, Ukraine and Poland at all levels, from teenagers all the way up to in-house business English. I deliver great Life in the UK Test practice to help you get the best result. Before becoming a teacher I had a photography business in London, which allowed me to travel, and eventually to film my adventures for my YouTube channel, another passion of mine. I consider myself to be very confident and friendly, with a great sense of humour and with many passions that all students have been able to relate to.
