The lessons at English42 were mainly focused on my goals and to improve my weaknesses. Simon is a great teacher and the lessons were easy to learn and pure fun. The possibility of having remote lessons was very practical, too.


As non-English speakers, we can forget all the knowledge that we have learned through the time. English42 can help you to keep all your skills in order to speak, read, write and listen.

Luis & Katia

Thanks to English42, I was admitted to a business school after practicing the interview with a teacher. They not only correct the mistakes students make, but they also take time for their students and want them to succeed.


At English42, you can have a personal teacher that completely understands your learning difficulties, and help you find the key to learning English at your own pace.



Thank you again for helping me with my CV. I got a call from a recruiter last week who offered me an interesting job, with lots of English speaking and writing. It wouldn’t have happened if my CV/motivation letter hadn’t been so perfect.


I would certainly recommend English42 to anyone who wants to improve their English and be sure that the learning process will be totally customized. English42 is the place to start.
