I started Focused English to give people the skills they need to be more successful. As an expat English teacher in Istanbul, Turkey for seven years, I noticed that there were many schools available for people to learn what is known as ‘General English’. These schools were a great way for people to learn the basics of English, but there were very few courses that taught people the English they actually needed for work.
And when I would ask people why they wanted to learn English, the vast majority would say they needed it for their career or job. I decided to start working with
people to help them learn the English skills they actually needed, and when I returned to the U.S. I started working on Focused English.
I hope that you enjoy the courses, and I hope to see you in one of our online conversation lessons!
