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:

What do you do?                                        I am an Engineer.

_____________________________    My surname? J-A-C-O-B-S

_____________________________     I don’t support any football teams.

However each student is an individual and so we have material for your particular needs, including business English, exam English and can adapt to give lessons for very specialist areas such as law, finance, interior design and the oil and gas industry – all lessons we have given to Phone English students recently.
