James, Hotel HR Manager, London
“My teacher was really easygoing and open minded. The classes were really interesting from a cultural point of view, and reading newspaper and magazine articles was a good way to learn idiomatic phrases. I now feel more confident in English.
Amandine, Finance Industry, London
“I’m extremely satisfied with my English classes with Orchid English. My teacher manages our 1-2-1 classes with a dynamic approach and always has a good variety of exercises (2 or 3 different types of exercise per class). There is a good balance between grammar & vocabulary, exercises & discussions, reading & speaking, etc.
I like the fact that my teacher always corrects me when I make a mistake and helps me in improving my pronunciation. The themes and topics used as supports are really interesting and help us to have varied sessions. I can honestly say that the classes meet my expectations. My teacher also asks me on regular basis if I want to study something in particular and whether I am happy with her approach… and I am!
Frank, Transportation Industry, London
“The choice of articles for our English lessons cover wide-ranging fields. We feel the lesson time flies by while we are completely engaged in discussion. In addition to this, we often gain flashes of insight from the discussions. Our teacher takes the trouble to spot errors without interrupting our conversation, and gives us useful advice when we are ready. What we are particularly grateful for is the exercises on definite and indefinite article usage. This is helpful for us to acquire the skills of writing and speaking accurately and effectively.
Kazu, Teacher, London
“I have been taking English lessons for about a year and a half and my English ability has improved. My lessons aren’t at fixed intervals because I often have business trips. Consequently, sometimes I have to cancel the lessons, but my teacher always re-arranges the schedule without any complaints. I’m very appreciative of her kind help.
Junichi, Ship Building Industry, London
“Our teacher is doing a super job. The housekeeping team really love the sessions, and it’s amazing after just one week to hear their confident and enthusiastic greetings of ‘Good Morning!’ They are having fun, and it is a pleasure to see the good coming from it.
Marie, HR Advisor, Residential Management Company, London
“Our employees in the housekeeping department enjoy their teacher’s teaching style. I know that they look forward to learning English in their lesson every week too. Thank you so much for being such a dedicated and inspiring teacher to all of them.

Cédric, Finance Industry, London
“My teacher was a pleasure to work with and her approach was very good. She provided me with relevant material for each lesson. I would recommend her to anyone who was considering taking English lessons.
Emmanuel, Banking Industry, London
“My teacher is kind, patient, diligent and well-experienced. She always gives me well-prepared, bespoke lessons to overcome all aspects of my weakness in English. I now feel more comfortable in my command of English and I recommend her to all English learners of any level. I am sure she can make your English much better in an enjoyable and efficient way.
Shinichi, Public Organisation, London
“Lessons with Orchid English are what I had never had at school in Japan or a language school in London. I feel I have improved my speaking skills especially in terms of pronunciation and I have been more confident with my speaking when I talk with native English speakers in London. Recently, I have come to feel I need to build more vocabulary and my teacher prepares well to support this.
Kota, Finance Industry, London
“My teacher is the best English teacher I have ever had. Thanks to her, I feel like I am improving English week after week in terms of fluency, vocabulary and high level listening.
Jiro, Trading Company, London
“I understand that most business people don’t have enough time to go to English school on weekdays after work. Orchid English always arranges lesson times flexibly so you don’t need to worry about that. The teachers will help you maintain strong willpower – the most important thing is that you have to want to study English and communicate well with other people in English!
Hideyoshi, Engineering Industry, London
“I have only two words: “Absolutely fantastic!”
Marco, Diplomat, Tunisia
“I started English lessons 1 year ago and I could speak very simple English at that time. These days, my English is better than before, making my job in London easier. My teacher explains very well and is always patient. She gives me a lot of hints about speaking English and understanding English culture because she is originally from England!
