Why Do You Need a British English Tutor?
Studying with a British English teacher provides an example of great pronunciation. With this exposure, you’ll adopt the right manner of speaking, intonation, and proper sentence construction just from listening to your tutor.
Your tutor will use British English to teach you the language to remove the communication barrier. They don’t know your native language, so you’ll have to build up your speaking confidence and begin to understand and think in English over time.
Learning from a British English speaker tutor is more effective than in a regular classroom. Lessons will be focused on your personal success and consider your abilities and motivation. British tutors can help you prepare for international exams, train for job interviews, and take on all sorts of other challenges in your life and career.
Talking to a native-like speaker from a different culture will expose you to their norms, traditions, and way of life. Furthermore, you’ll be exposed to parts of the language that are difficult to find in books or the media - living, everyday interactions.
A native speaker, regardless of whether they’re British or American, teaches you practical skills to apply in everyday situations. The main focus is to prepare you for life in an English-speaking environment, which means focusing on useful vocabulary and common expressions.
You’ll get feedback on your progress and regularly work on your mistakes. Whether it’s grammar, writing, pronunciation, or speaking - your British English teacher will help set you on the right path. Your lessons will be tailored to your level and individual learning style, ensuring you succeed.
What Our Learners Say
Thanks to Promova! My tutor explained incomprehensible places and talked about the tricks of the language and what to pay attention to first. Again, there was an excellent practice of communicating with a native speaker, since he is British English and could only get me if I tried hard. In fact, if there is no desire to learn a language, then not even the most wonderful teacher will save you. 70% of the work is self-study, in my opinion.
Promova is an excellent platform with tutors! It's a pleasure to work with teachers! My mentor knows a lot of subtleties, a real pro! Thanks!
I am very happy with the lessons with the tutor for adults on Promova! It's fun and interesting to discuss everything with her! I practice speaking and improve pronunciation.
I would like to leave a review on working with an adult teacher. Very professional, responsive! I had a rather individual request to her on the program, a large program of British English + Business English. The teacher fully met all expectations, and was able to build a program that was very convenient and understandable! Plus, there was beautiful pronunciation in the classroom, and a lot of conversational parts! The teacher is excellent!
A highly qualified specialist who can explain the new material very clearly, correctly and competently. Thank you very much! Each lesson consists of up–to-date relevant texts, high intensity tempo, and classes are exclusively in English.
What is a British English tutor?
A British English tutor is a person who spends a lot of time studying the language and the process of learning it. They’re an expert in the field, certified to teach you and help you become fluent over time. Their first goal is to understand your personality and find the best approach to help you learn British English. They don’t just give you guided practice but also stimulate your critical thinking and offer materials for future self-study.
You get to learn from someone who speaks the language at a high level, exposing you to perfect pronunciation and clear communication.
Is British English the same as American English?
American and British English are characterized by specific features and possess several differences. Overall, residents of the UK prefer to stick to rules that developed in the English language over many centuries, while Americans simplify their speech and use a lot of shorthands for words and ideas.
According to the experience of our teachers, learning classic British English grammar and further supplementing it with slang words and idioms can give you the best of both worlds.
If you’re not a native speaker, it might be challenging to separate these two accents. Active listening and time with your tutor can help you better at isolating patterns between these and many other accents. If you’re going to the UK or plan to work with British companies, it makes sense to focus on that; if you’re moving to the US, maybe seek out an American English tutor instead.
What is the difference between British and American English?
In addition, there are differences in vocabulary. The number of words used only in one of the countries is small, but it’s still worth knowing. For example, “Flat” versus “Apartment” or “Tube” versus “Subway,” and so on. The British also use more formal structures. For example, they will opt for the word “shall” when they talk about the future, while Americans will be satisfied with a simple “will.”
Is British English proper English?
British English is “correct” where it is spoken, and American or Australian English is correct in these world regions. Language is constantly changing, and no version of it is more or less proper than others. Otherwise, Old English, with its cumbersome phrases and expressions, would still be used today.
British English is generally accepted. You’ll see it in most standardized international tests and exams, so starting there is a good idea if you plan on getting a certification. It also allows you to completely understand grammar with all its formal nuance. Studying complex rules will enable you to easily use various constructions in any situation.
Overall, British English is very diverse, with colorful regional accents and lots of colloquialisms. However, you can significantly expand your vocabulary and make your speech much richer with exposure to many cultures and ways of speaking.
