Simply English

Conversational English Lessons for Speakers of Other Languages

Simply English is an Amsterdam based language school which specialises in teaching conversational Engish to speakers of other languages. Students can start at A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 levels (beginners to proficient) and can take either private or group lessons. All lessons take place at Vicki Summers' home in Amsterdam, where students learn and practise speaking in an informal and friendly environment.


All students are given a 30 minute intake-interview to establish their level and individual needs, after which they choose a course of either 6 or 12 lessons. The courses utilise worksheets, selected textbooks and a wide range of audio-visual aids. Students are individually consulted at the start of their course as to any special topics they would like to cover, following which the teacher will provide lessons based on these requests. The aim of the lessons is always to have the students speaking as much as possible, with the teacher encouraging and correcting where necessary.


While private lessons are available, conversation is best practised in a group. Simply English therefore always attempts to group students of similar abilities together where possible for weekly group sessions.
