Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  How can I be sure that English For Life is right for me?

A:  We offer a free half hour lesson where you can meet with Sue to ask any questions you may have.  If you feel that she is the right teacher for you, then a course of lessons can be planned.

Q:  What will happen at my first lesson?

A:  On your first lesson you will be given a needs analysis.  Together you will decide what your objectives are, which areas of English need improvement and your timescale.  Any questions you have will be addressed during the first lesson.

Q:  How long will each lesson be?

A:  This is entirely up to you, of course – but our normal lesson duration is 1.5 hours.  This is adaptable, according to your availability and your preference.  Lessons of 1 hour, 2 hours or longer are all possible.

Q:  Where can I have my lessons?

A:  They can be held at your own home, your workplace, a quiet cafe or at the English For Life location in Tresham, near Wotton-Under-Edge.

Q:  Where is “English For Life”?

A:  Find English for Life on Google maps. Parking is available on-site.

Q:  Do I need to buy a book?

A:  All materials will be provided by English For Life, but we may recommend a particular book for you – these can be ordered through or through the individual publisher’s website.

Q:  How do I pay for my lessons?

A:  Lessons must be paid for in advance, normally in 10 lesson blocks.  We  kindly ask you to give 48 hours notice of cancellation, or the lesson will be charged at the normal rate.

Q:  How do I know what level I am?

A:  At your first lesson, you will have an informal chat with Sue about what you want to achieve from your English lessons.  You will be given a placement test and a needs analysis and the results from these will be used to plan your lessons.

Q:  I don’t speak any English at all!  Can I still have lessons?

A:  Sue has wide experience in dealing with complete beginners in English. Don’t worry – you will soon be chatting away!
