Our teachers at Avenue English

Our teachers at Avenue English

Our school has a friendly and personalised atmosphere from the first email inquiry to a Certificate of Achievement or Attendance.  All of us strive to make the #English language learner feel comfortable and welcome.   Some of our teachers have been with us since our inception in 2011 and others have just recently joined #Avenue English.  They have the teaching credentials that allow them entry into our establishment.  What gives our teachers the edge is their outstanding “can do” attitudes. They ALL give so much more when it comes to working together to make every language learner feel inspired and motivated to gain confidence in their English language abilities.  So, with no further ado we would like to introduce each teacher, so that when you plan on visiting our school you will always find a familiar face or two. Sally has been with us ‘forever’.  She is the teacher who introduces all the current lingo into the school, from the friendly, “Good morning Gang,” to other favourites like, “Hip-hop and happening”, “to cut a long story short”, and “go large!”.  She is our fashion fundhi and casts a designer eye over all of us to keep us on our toes.  Her enthusiasm for language and life is contagious.  She teaches all levels and takes care of our corporate one-to-one students. Sally responds to the energy of all the different nationalities which, in turn inspires her to give her all. She is a proud #South African who wants everyone to enjoy themselves in Johannesburg during their time with us at #Avenue English. Thuto is our young, modern, dynamic African queen!  She... read more

Speak English with confidence at Avenue English

Improve your English communication skills with Avenue English How confident are you with your English communication skills? For many South African and other international second-language English speakers, language is the only reason you lack confidence in the business and social arena. You know what you want to say and you certainly understand your business but you’re unsure of how to express yourself.  This is especially true when in the company of mother-tongue English speakers.  Get rid of the jitters – improve your English with Avenue English’s part-time Saturday morning classes. Join AE’s English Improvement classes held over a period of 8 Saturdays from 9.00 – 1.00p.m. We unpack the language according to your current level of English and show you how to put it back together again with confidence.  Our classes are limited to a maximum of 12 students so that everyone receives individual attention. This course is so popular that students continue after their first course to do further levels with us. We guarantee that you will have the tools to improve your communication skills – written and spoken. These are the 2017 dates for this recommended course.
