Find your voice with MyClass – an active learning community where you can practise the language with new friends and inspire each other.
Learn together, learn better
MyClass will help develop more than just your English skills. Our learning space provides an immersive environment where everyone can participate and help each other grow in confidence.
You will work in small groups to complete tasks, where the teacher will observe, advise and give active feedback. Plus, with lots of speaking practise in your groups, you’ll soon develop practical English skills that you can really use.
Learn more than a language
Take your language skills to another level with MyClub, a schedule of cultural and social sessions. MyClub provides a great opportunity to connect with learners and practise English beyond the classroom.
You can boost your career with focused sessions on business English, improve your language technique with vocabulary and pronunciation sessions, or just relax with friends in our social conversation sessions
What is MyClub?
MyClub is a extra-curricular programme for MyClass students that includes a wide range of language-based, cultural, professional and social activities that will help you boost your communication skills, build confidence and develop your English with topics that interest you in a fun and friendly environment.
Professional Skills sessions do not focus on English development, although you will improve your workplace English. These sessions are aimed at anyone who needs strong communication skills to ensure success in projects, working relationships and teams.
Professional Skills lessons are trial sessions of our newly introduced Professional skills workshops. For more information please visit our website.

If you have a question or you aren't sure about a grammar point studied in class; or maybe you want some tips on how to remember new vocabulary we encourage you to attend Language Doctor classes.
Each lesson is based on a topic that will encourage conversation and interaction to polish your grammar knowledge and expand the repertoire of words and phrases you use and recognise. You will take part in a range of activities, including informal conversation, debates and discussionsin pairs and groups.
