Get to know us

Your first step in learning foreign languages has been teaching people to speak foreign languages since 2009. We are raising the bar on learning English, and the best and most original to say the least. We are centrally located in Taichung, near The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in the West District. We are excited to welcome you to one of the safest and best weather cities in the world.

Level Information

Although testing systems are something we detest, we unfortunately are faced with many people who only wish to pass a test. We do offer a placement test that evaluates grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension skills to help better place you with the right people. From that point on we believe the true test will be when you are speaking with and writing to native English speakers, and they are impressed at your fluency and ability to express yourself. We believe that is what learning a language is all about. Many of us are however caught in a paradigm of testing systems and uses terminology from Beginner I to Advanced III. Sometimes there may be exceptions such as Total Beginner or Advanced IV. This chart is helpful and actually VERY accurate!

These comparisons are approximate and do not suggest any recognition by ETS, Cambridge Assessment, or the CAEL Assessment Office.

    Our Junior program is a fun and exciting adventure for young learners. This English course is tried, tested and true and our 5+ hour cancelation policy is totally worth bragging about.

    Message from the Director

    I believe that learning a language doesn't have to be a hellish experience. I think that if you have ever felt awful because of a bad test score then something was just wrong with your language, and this can be a lot of fun. Laughter brings forth great memory. Give us a try and I am sure you will be impressed and very happy you found us.
