 What one of our Tti teachers has to say...


"I have been teaching English for nearly 5 years and for me the best thing about teaching the 30+ course is that together we can discover this city’s culture and the influences other cultures have had upon it through our weekly excursions around London. Also, the students are from different backgrounds and professions which allows us to talk about so many diverse topics including politics, the arts and global issues. Our conversations are always dynamic."

"It was really interesting to try and find the 7 wonders of the British Museum. It allowed us to see several civilizations and when you found the object or one of the wonders you felt satisfied! The museum trips also help you expand your vocabulary through reading each artefact's captions or through describing the object's shape. It has opened the door for me to go visit London's museums again and again!"
Inigo Del Pino o'Shea (Spain)

"This is my seventh time studying at Tti. The 30+ course was a great experience and I really enjoyed studying in a small group and the weekly trips. The teachers are always keeping us engaged with interesting topics from UK culture to politics and global issues. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their English with a more interactive course."

Satsuki Ishizuka - Japan

"I have really enjoyed Tti's 30+ course. In the beginning, I did not feel confident to speak very well but the teachers were very kind and always encouraged me. Our classroom environment is a calm, comfortable space to improve your English and all the students are proactive. The guest speakers help you also to learn English in a natural way. Thank you for a wonderful time and I'll keep studying English after this experience at Tti."
