I had my first lesson with Randal today. We had a very interesting and pleasant conversation in English. Randal outlined language aspects that cannot be found in English course books. Based on this and the pleasant conversation atmosphere, I can strongly recommend the English lessons with Randal.

It was really a great class. I could speak a lot, always with the supervision of Randal, who gave me useful hints about pronunciation and vocabulary. Randal is a great person and tutor. Thanks, Randal.

Had a trial lesson with Randal, who was polite, motivating, as well as realistic. He managed my expectations while at the same time was being very encouraging. It was a great insight into how future lessons with him could be. I also learned that he was learning French, which is a good thing as it’s always helpful for the teacher to understand the common challenges that language learners face.
