I have been taking courses on the Promova English tutoring for adults for 2 months. The tutor gives a lot of really useful information, which I immediately began to use in my work, a lot of additional literature, resources, and thoughts.
I am very happy with the training on the Promova platform. I need exactly the actual spoken language. My English teacher gives me exactly what I want: correct pronunciation, up-to-date vocabulary, and of course grammar.
I like Promova. I can easily negotiate with the tutor and change the time of classes. There are no hard feelings if circumstances change. It works both ways – we found a common language. We quickly established contact, and determined the level of the language in the trial lesson. The lesson is interesting because I constantly talk to the tutor on different topics. He's a great conversationalist. And speaking is perfectly practiced in the lesson.

What makes adult English courses different?
The way we teach children and adults is hard to compare directly. Classes with children involve a lot of games, songs, and cartoons. Children know how to have fun while learning, and we believe it’s part of why they’re so good at it.
Adults tend to approach language learning more systematically: study the rules, analyze patterns and examples, and train to express thoughts competently and accurately. You have the experience and discipline that comes with age.
Promova brings back children’s engaging and fun language learning with the advantages of a personal goal-oriented plan. This mixed method helps our private English tutor for adults provide the best learning experience tailored to your needs.
Our classes with an English tutor online for adults are more practical, convenient, and 2-3 times more effective than traditional methods.
