How Can Futuresay Help Me?

Our approach to learning English is built around you, your interests and your aims.

Focus

Everyone need an objective. We help to define yours. Then we set monthly targets.

Reporting

After each lesson, you get a report with new words, corrections and concepts.

Assessment

Your supervisor interviews you each month and gives an assessment of your progress.

Excellence

We aim to excel in everything that we do. We help you to share our ambition.

Active

In Futuresay lessons, you do most of the speaking. The role of our teachers is to guide you.

Efficiency

We teach you things that you can’t learn on your own. You don’t pay to read grammar exercises.

Who Have We Helped?

We have prepared their students for a range of high-pressure situations from presentations at the World Economic Forum to jury interviews in the Miss World competition.

“We have offices in more than 20 countries and I have to use English every day. My listening and understanding were quite poor and it affected the work process. Before I started with Futuresay, it was a real challenge for me to communicate with colleagues. Intensive lessons and great guidance from Kit helped me to achieve significant progress…I highly recommend Futuresay if you need to be an integral part of the modern business world.”
Pavel Bestavashvili, Head of Live Services

Questions and Answers

Teaching

What’s the preliminary assessment?

Your teacher will always support and encourage you. You also need an independent opinion. That’s why everyone who learns with Futuresay has a separate personal supervisor. Her role is to keep you focused and to review your progress at regular intervals. Your relationship with Futuresay begins with her.

The first step is to diagnose your current weaknesses and to set your targets.  This is the purpose of the preliminary assessment. It’s a 15-minute interview that we conduct on Skype. We use this information to match you with the right teacher. You’ll have a long-term target and a short-term target: this gives you inspiration and direction.

Who will be my teacher?

After your assessment we will choose a teacher for you, our choice is based on your profession, interests and goals. If you wish to change teachers, we can arrange this.

All of our teachers have at least two years experience. Our teachers never teach more than two screen-to-screen lessons in a single day. They spend the rest of the day away from the computer. This is why they’re so energetic and enthusiastic in your lessons!

Do you have teachers that specialise in particular sectors?

Yes, if you would like to find out more please get in touch by phone or email.

What materials do you use?

We use different materials depending on what style of learning you demonstrate and what interests you have. With other clients we sometimes use articles on topics they find interesting, videos, personalised grammar exercises. You choose.

Reporting & Assessment

How do you measure my progress?

Your supervisor is responsible for measuring your progress. In your regular assessments together, you’ll review your personal goals.

We also think it’s important to give you an internationally-recognised indication of your progress. For every assessment, your supervisor will give you an estimate of your expected score in the IELTS speaking assessments. Where suitable, our supervisors will also mark your written work.

Can you tell me more about the assessments?

Every eight lessons, we ask you to sign up for online for a speaking assessment or interview. If you wish, you may also submit a written essay or presentation. Both parts of the assessment are done by an independent examiner. You will receive a mark and feedback for both the essay and the interview, according to the IELTS mark scheme.

How does the report system work?

After every lesson you will receive a written report about your lesson, containing both a summary of the lesson and a list of your mistakes.

Scheduling

How often can I have lessons?

You can have lessons as often as you like. Typically clients have either one or two lessons a week.

What happens if I need to reschedule a lesson?

It is possible to reschedule lessons, although we encourage learners to allocate a set time for their lessons each week. You are able to reschedule lessons once every 30 days, as long as you give at least 24 hours’ notice. If you wish to reschedule more than one lesson in a 30-day period, you will require your teacher’s approval.

When do lessons take place?

Lessons take place at a time of your choosing. We recommend that lessons to occur at regular times each week e.g. every Monday and Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Payment

How much does a lesson cost?

We set our prices in British pounds because our company, Learn2 UK Limited, is registered in the United Kingdom. We also provide an option for you to pay in U.S. dollars. The price per 60-minute lesson is £25, assuming that you book at least four lessons at once. It’s slightly cheaper if you book eight lessons. We update our dollar prices at the start of each month because they’re based on the average exchange rate for the previous month. You can see the current rates here.

How do I pay

You pay at the beginning of each month for the number of lessons you would like to have in that month.

Can I have a refund for unused lessons

For packages of 4 and 8 lessons, if you attend your first lesson and are unsatisfied, you may request a full refund up to 24 hours after the lesson is completed. After this, no refunds are given.

Technical

What software do you use for lessons

We use Skype for our screen to screen lessons, we have found it to be the simplest and most effective choice. If you would prefer to use a different platform, we are happy to facilitate this.

Other questions

Who do you teach?

We primarily teach professionals who work in the technology sector, but we can help you no matter where you work.

Why do you provide personal screen-to-screen lessons but not personal face-to-face lessons?

We want to provide you with the world’s best English teachers at a reasonable price. We also want to provide you with short and regular assessments from independent supervisors. You can schedule screen-to-screen lessons whenever you want and you can be wherever you want. For people who want personal lessons, we can provide a much better service by focusing on screen-to-screen lessons.

Do you provide group lessons?

Yes, we do. If you would like to find out more please write to groups@futuresay.net or give us a call on +7 (499) 5042871.
