English Education

M&K Communication offers English classes over Skype, an Internet telephone and video calling service that makes participation possible anywhere in the world. With small class sizes - no more than five students per class - students are able to actively participate. Since all of our instructors have professional experience as English instructors and because they live in the United States, students have the opportunity to learn "living English" in an easy-to-understand environment. Lessons feature detailed instruction with student evaluations provided by the instructor after the end of each session.

Because we offer many different types of classes, students can focus on specific areas they wish to improve, such as conversation, grammar, writing, and test preparation. Along with English classes, we also offer classes that increase knowledge in specific fields, including American public policy and medical terminology.

We are flexible in responding to our clients' educational needs, such as providing instructors to teach on-site for corporate training and holding workshops to help international students adapt to life in the U.S. Please contact us to discuss your specific educational needs.
