Gold, Silver or Bronze...?

A private tutor in the UK is £31 per hour* for English as a Foreign Language.

The price is usually higher if the lessons are of a better quality and aimed at a more advanced level.


Learn Advanced English aims to help people with a good standard of English to express themselves like a native.

I hope you will find the lessons to be very thorough and helpful!


(* An average taken on April 2020 from: tutorful.co.uk; tutorhunt.com; and prospects.ac.uk)

Massive value every week, all for a similar price as 1 hour with a personal tutor!


Each membership offers different types of lessons and different amounts too (see below).

On average, each lesson has 3 hours of learning input from a qualified native English speaker: MINIMUM!


Bronze membership offers a minimum of 12 hours of value each month for a similar price as 1 hour with a personal tutor; Gold offers more than twice as much for only 34% more money.


You will see that, in some ways, you’ll get much more than you would from personal tuition.

There are 6 different types of lessons at Learn Advanced English.

Debate & Reason:

In the "Debate & Reason" exercises, we read text based on real-world situations and answer comprehension questions. The text material is taken from podcasts, tv, articles, websites etc.

Then, in the Student forum beneath the lesson, we share opinions related to the text. It is good to share as many different opinions as possible (even if it isn't your own personal opinion). 

The teacher chooses certain pieces to correct, re-write or make comments. Students can too.


Restructure:

In the "Restructure" exercise, we re-write text using similar vocabulary and phrases (synonyms) to keep very close to the original meaning. In this regard, it is different to the "Enrich your writing" exercise.

The text comes from real-world examples in books, articles, websites etc.

This exercise teaches you how to express the same or similar things in different ways - just like native speakers can. We also look at how the tone changes slightly with similar words.


Example:

"I was walking in the park and saw a dog chasing a bird."

This could also be expressed as:

"I was strolling in the park when I saw a dog racing after a bird."

 

Also, notice how the tone changes slightly: 'strolling' feels more care-free and like they were taking their time; 'racing' gives a sense of speed.

 

You can submit your work to the student forum beneath the lesson. The teacher chooses certain pieces to correct, re-write or make comments. Students can too.


Research Project:

In this exercise, a topic is given, including a number of suggested questions about that topic.

Students are invited to share their opinions in the student forum, as well as what they have found on websites, in books and magazines etc. IN THEIR OWN WORDS.

The teacher and other students can discuss, offer suggestions, correct or re-write any part of your text. And you can do the same.


Creative Clinic:

In the "Creative Clinic" exercises, we take short excerpts and re-write them in 5 different ways. We use text from real-world examples: books, articles or websites etc.

1) Restructure: this is the same as the restructure exercise. Staying very close to expressing the original meaning, but with different words, phrases and sentence structure.

2) Change/Add Adverbs: keeping the same basic meaning but adding adverbs to make it more expressive, or changing the adverbs that are already there.

3) Change/Add Adjectives: keeping the same basic meaning but adding adjectives to make it more expressive, or changing the adjectives that are already there.

4) Opposite: using antonyms, express an opposite meaning.

5) Flowery/Poetic/Figurative speech: keep the same very basic meaning, but make it more imaginative and creative by using idioms and other figurative speech. Perhaps even making it poetic.

 

You can submit your work to the student forums. Every exercise has its own forum.

The teacher chooses certain pieces to correct, re-write or make comments. Students can too.


Enrich your writing:

In the "Enrich your writing" exercises, we re-write text from real-world examples: from books, articles or websites etc. We keep the very basic meaning but change the tone, the emotion, the structure, the style.

For example, you may be asked to change a sad story into a happy one, or change the attributes of one of the characters. You may even be asked to change the style of writing, perhaps from a news report to a creative piece of writing, for example.

This is a different exercise of expression than "restructure".

 

Example:

"She ate her toast."

If we wanted to show she was really enjoying her food we could re-write it like this:

"She bit down earnestly into her warm toast. A satisfying crunch resounded around her teeth. A smile spread across her face as the succulent jam spread across her tongue."

 

Of course, "She ate her toast" is a very simple sentence, whereas other texts are more elaborate and complex. Sometimes we will need to simplify a text before we re-write it creatively.

 

You can submit your work to the student forum beneath the lesson. The teacher chooses certain pieces to correct, re-write or make comments. Students can too.


The Eclectic remarks of an Englishman:

In the "Eclectic Remarks" exercise, the teacher posts stories about things that are going on in the world, or excerpts from articles and books.

At the end of each story there is a short comprehension test.

There are also questions for students to submit their opinions to a forum. The teacher and other students can discuss, offer suggestions, correct or re-write.

Let's look at the value of each membership in a couple of different ways:

1.) Savings in the service itself

2.) Savings compared to personal tutors


The prices of each membership are as follows:

Bronze is £30 per month (£6.92 per week);

Silver is £35 per month (£8.08 per week);

Gold is £40 per month (£9.23 per week).

 (All money is paid monthly at Learn Advanced English.)


Each membership offers a different number of lessons and savings overall:

Bronze (£30 per month) = 2 lessons or £15 per lesson;

Silver (£35 per month) = 4 lessons or £8.75 per lesson;

Gold (£40 per month) = 6 lessons or £6.67 per lesson.


Remember, a qualified native English speaker contributes a minimum of 3 hours per lesson (on average). So, in terms of hours, each membership offers the following:


Bronze (£30 per month) = 6 hours of value per month or £5 per hour of value;

Silver (£35 per month) = 12 hours of value per month or £2.92 per hour of value;

Gold (£40 per month) = 18 hours of value per month or £2.22 per hour of value.


And what if we compare to the cost of personal tutors?

(using £31 per hour and 3 hours per lesson as an example)?


Bronze (£30 per month) would cost £186 - LAE saves you £156;

Silver (£35 per month) would cost £372 - LAE saves you £337;

Gold (£40 per month) would cost £558 - LAE saves you £518.

  

Gold is the best service and offers the best value by far, 

but Silver and Bronze also offer a lot.


There is a one month trial period price for each membership (one-time only).

You can try a membership for half the normal price during the first month.

Your membership will automatically renew at the full price for every month you choose to be a student with us.
