- Trust. Our company has offered classes in Houston with the best qualified teachers for over 10 years, with a perfect A+ rating from the BBB.
- Extra Trust. Reviews and endorsements from real customers and students, not incognito "website marketing text" with only first name or initials.
- Still More Trust. A company with an office location and classroom accessible at any time by appointment where we are glad to meet with you in person, not a traditional foreign language school or church with the same old classes or someone selling services out of their home.
- Fair Prices, Not Greed. Our mission is to help as many English language learners as possible become fully bilingual speakers in Houston. Local competitors charge up to 10x more for this same training simply because they can, and require much longer to complete.

We are involved with local community non-profit organizations to make sure everyone has continuous help and practice beyond their classes. This is the only course in Houston where every student who finishes is guaranteed that we will match you with a native English speaker volunteer for continuous practice and development after completing the course. There is no additional cost for this service, it is part of our commitment.

English Pronunciation Tips
Long A /Ay/
Open the jaws about ½ inch, spread lips with face muscles tense while the tongue is down (middle and front), and push air up through the throat vibrating the vocal cords and out through the mouth.
Long A Words: say, day, made, grey, make, play, claim, grade, shade, insane
Long E /Ey/
Draw the lips back and drop the jaw slightly so that the teeth are apart, raise the tongue midway (high and front) with face muscles tense, and push air up through the throat vibrating the vocal cords and out through the mouth.
Long E Words: see, eat, bead, bee, key, please, three, clean, free, stream
One of the most difficult aspects of spoken English is the difference between the vowel characters (spelling) and the actual sounds they make in spoken English.
Written letters (particularly vowel characters) are actually deceptive, and do not correspond to a particular vowel sound. Nowhere is this more true than with the most common sound in English - the schwa /ə/, which sounds like “uh”. The truth is, any vowel (a,e,i,o,u,) can sound like /uh/ at any time.
You can’t trust your eyes with spoken English, only your ears. The sounds are the key to making sense out of crazy English spelling, and there are many more than 5 vowel sounds. That’s why native speakers learn the sounds first, with nursery rhymes.
