What the students say

I started my English courses when I arrived here in January and I did courses twice a week during 3 months. I can say that I enjoyed this so much! Hazel is an amazing person, and a great teacher. She’s very smart and so thoughtful. She helped me a lot when I needed some advice, and I definitely improved my English with her help. We were just 4 students in my class so we could practice a lot our spoken English. Hazel is open-minded and we had pleasant conversation with her. I sincerely recommend Hazel to learn a good English quickly. Thank you again!

Anne Sophie, France

When I came to London my English was less than elementary, I could just say ‘yet’ or ‘not’. Even if I knew the grammar it was like I had any word in my mind but I couldn’t speak up. Hazel was able to pull them out and she made me talk. I felt like a child when he finally can tell everyone what he’s thinking without doubt. I found the job I’ve always wished for. It was amazing having Hazel as my teacher, she became my friend. The most important thing she gave me a method and now I can keep studying by myself, but if I need I know she will be there.

Sara, Italy

I met Hazel at a private school some years ago where I studied Business English with her. She was such a brilliant teacher that I asked her to give me one- to- one classes. If you are looking for someone who is passionate, professional and dedicated to her work – It’s Hazel. She has tailored my lessons to my needs by using a variety of methods and techniques. Having come here with little English, I am now working in a management role. I was lucky to meet her, as she is not only a great teacher but also a good friend.

Joanna, Poland

I have known Hazel as my teacher at a language school for pre-intermediate class and later on due to her skills I chose her as my private teacher to help me prepare for the FCE exam which I successfully passed. Hazel is very friendly and hard-working person always well prepared for a lesson with many years of experience in teaching. I found her techniques very helpful and well-focused in areas I needed a help to improve the most.
I would definitely recommend Hazel to starters and also professionals who are looking for well-balanced lessons with a professional attitude and skilled person keen on helping you to improve in English language.

Tomas, Czech Republic

In lessons you will learn different skills, which are important for the english language, e.g. the difference and the use of all times, different forms of words and how you can change and use them, writing essays, reviews, reports etc. You will be also specialised in “Writing, Listening, Speaking”. It is important that every student has the possibility to share their opinion with their class about the topics, you are discussing about in this moment.
I wasn´t thinking about doing the cambridge exam, but after a few months of hard working, training and a great preparation for the special exercises you have to do in the exam. I passed like the most of Hazel students.

Anne, Germany

Nuria, from Spain passed FCE and went on to Lower Advanced level
“I highly recommend this English school because it helped me to achieve my aim to pass my FCE. Moreover I consider that the prices are affordable.”

Nuria, Spain

When I came in London I was terrified!, I thought “how can learn and improve my English?”
My host mum found Hazel and her English school in the website “Nappyvalleynet” and I’m grateful to her because she CAN’T find a better school!
My teacher Caroline has been patient, kind, she is brilliant and she help me a lot to improve my English with grammar, listening, speaking and writing lessons and she was always ready to give you an help!
I can’t say thank you enough for all of that, but I’m sure I could recommend “The language web” as a best English school!
