We hope you enjoy the funny video which  is taken from one of our most popular Phone English worksheets. It always stimulates some great discussion, vocabulary and phrases in class. And when you are engaged and enjoying lessons, you always learn better.

But the material we use in lessons depends on you.

At Phone English, the first thing we do is discover your needs, level and interests so we can create lessons that are interesting and will help you improve quickly.

To create the best lessons for you, we use our own worksheets, internet materials, online newspapers and your own resources as a basis for relevant lessons.

To give you a flavour of our classes, here is sample material from 3 of our popular worksheets for improving English fluency:

Worksheet 1 sample: Survival English:

1.                 Ask for a ticket on the bus. You want to go to Exeter and back.

2.                 You want to know what time the next train to London leaves.

3.                 You want to sit down on the train. What do you say to the man in the next seat.

4.                 Invite someone to the cinema. (teacher can extend this into a role-play asking for times, where to meet etc.)


Worksheet 2 sample: Make a question:

About the author:

My name is Lea Hook.
I’m am the proud owner of Phone English Online Language School.
Phone English was created in 2004 by Louisa and William when Skype had just been invented, it moved with the times and since then other platforms have been used such as Zoom, Meet etc. I have been working with Phone English since 2013.
In the new year, Phone English will launch a new platform with Learncube.
With qualified and experienced native British teachers already on board living in the UK, I am hoping to expand in the next few years with native English teachers from all over the world with different accents.
In the next few years, I hope that Phone English will be a multi-subject platform with qualified teachers teaching all languages, maths, nutrition and diet, music, writing services, business, and any subject that can be taught online.
January will see a completely new website design and things will be added as we go.
Coming soon, Phone English Juniors, Phone English Spanish, Phone English writing and proofreading services.
