Do you have a method to learn?
We offer the SAME teacher for the whole of your course. We provide you with a curriculum (downloadable from each of the course pages) for the whole of your course so that you can exactly see what you are paying for. Naturally we will teach grammar and vocabulary, but the teachers will also be flexible when a course needs some adjustment. Our teachers always try to focus on the interests of the students, which is essential, to keep the motivation of every participant at a high level. Our 1to1 language courses offer the learner a completely tailored-made course aimed at their individual language level. All our courses cover real-life, practical situations helping learners achieve their goals.
Who are Charrly’s teachers?
All our teachers are native-fluent, qualified, experienced trainers. They are experts in their field and teach languages as a career. Selecting the best trainers is a priority for us. They are chosen not only for their English ability but also for their motivational prowess and people’s skills.
What language skills will I learn?
Speaking, Grammar, Vocabulary, Reading and Writing. All will be aimed at improving your fluency. You will be able to not only understand better but crucially learn to create sentences that communicate accurately the message that you wish to convey. This will be done using modern, relevant material.
What language levels do you offer?
We offer Business English at B1 level, General English at A2 as well as Spanish at A2. 1to1 courses are offered at any level.
Do you use learning materials?
For fixed curriculum courses you will need to purchase a specific course book. At Charrly we have created our own Grammar book with grammar explanations and tutorials all of which are free for you to download. Our teachers will also provide additional learning material which you can download at any time. Our language courses use the universally accepted CEFR for languages standard.
What is your method to select trainers?
All our teachers are carefully selected by us. We believe in continuity. Each course will have the same teacher for the whole of the course. This provides that continuity because the teacher identifies each classroom participant’s personality and therefore finds the best way to improve the participant’s English. We wish to go deeper and bring each participant to a new level of English. This can ONLY be achieved with continuity!
What exactly goes on in a lesson?
Each course will have the same teacher for the whole of the course. Each course has a curriculum which you can see in our website. We believe in transparency and therefore show you what you will receive when you buy a Charrly course. Consistency of the same trainer per course is essential here so that the curriculum is followed, and goals are achieved. The teacher will provide downloadable material and a book curriculum will also be followed.

Are mistakes corrected?
Each teacher at Charrly will correct your mistakes but they also have soft skills and so know when and when not to correct. They must be good at man-management as every single person on the planet has a different personality to the next person. Therefore, a teacher needs judge how best to interrupt with corrections.

Why should I learn with Charrly and not a traditional school?
Firstly, online learning with a live trainer has many advantages compared to a traditional language school:
How does Charrly work?

Charrly now can successfully operate on the following browsers given below in part 2.

A tutorial on how to use Charrly will also be available to you in your account page. We are always there if you need more help, and you can contact our student support through our contact form or simply call us.
When will I reach C1 Level?
This depends on many factors. Firstly, what is your current language level? This we can determine when you take our online Placement test. We follow the universally accepted CEFR standard from the Council of Europe. As a rule of thumb, it is possible to jump one level from the present level that you are on in about 6 months with a great deal of hard work. Most people though require a least a year with hard work. An so it depends where you start from. What we can say though is through taking courses with Charrly your level will steadily increase until you reach a level that you are satisfied with. This we can safely say is due to the very high standards of teacher quality that is at the core of any Charrly course.
Can I make progress learning in a group?
You certainly can with us. We have the teacher quality to make this happen. Our groups are small – a maximum of six but often smaller. Learning in a group can be an enjoyable experience which is always a valuable factor in trying to master a language. You can also benefit from the experiences of the other students in your group. Charrly also offers 1to1 English lessons. These lessons are also offered if you wish as subject-orientated courses such as Legal English, Technical English, Procurement English, Financial English, Real-Estate English, IT-English, Logistics English, Marketing English, Sales English, HR English, Medical English, Insurance English.
Can I have a certificate of my Progress?
It is possible to have a certificate from Charrly when you have completed a course. This will contain your placement test level and the subject material that was covered in the course. Our Certificates follow the universally accepted CEFR standard from the Council of Europe and are accepted by worldwide by many institutions.
How can I know if I will get what I expect from my course?
Take our free Placement Test! Ask for a free teacher trial, and we mean free. We are very careful with our teacher selection and feel sure that when you meet the teacher to discuss your course as well as knowing fully before paying as to what exactly is the content of your course your mind will be put as ease.
