It has been 9 years since I started teaching English and I absolutely love my job and my students. I used to study History and Literature in university but I discovered teaching after graduating and never regretted embarking on this career.

    Ever since I first started teaching, my driving force has always been a desire to enable people to become independent and be their best selves. I enjoy seeing people develop and learn to do things that they had previously dreamt of doing, learning English for example.

    FAQ

    At the end of your course, you get an attendance certificate from Klazz. It is not internationally recognized, but it is still a valuable proof of your language course and the improvement of your English skills and is therefore understandable by every employer worldwide.
    After booking, you will need to take a quick placement test on our Klazz Campus platform. Based on your results, we will add you to a class with students studying at the same level as you. You will also be in contact with your teacher before the beginning of the course. Our teachers will create a highly personalized experience for you and together, you can determine your priorities and work on what you need to improve the most. 
    All Klazz teachers are personally interviewed and carefully selected by our recruitment committee. Our main criteria are to find native English speakers. But we also attach a great deal of importance to their teaching experience and their pedagogic approach. 
    Lessons start every Monday at 9.00am. There are 4 lessons of 45 minutes focusing on grammar, reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. If you choose to follow an intensive course, you will attend an additional 2 lessons of 45 minutes in the afternoon. After booking and getting access to your Klazz Campus account, your timetable will be displayed (see below):

Once payment is made, we will ensure you receive all the documents required for your trip at least two weeks before the start of your course.

    Efficient and personalized

    We offer small, comfortable class sizes to enhance your learning experience. Courses are personalized based on your needs. Choose the start date and duration that suit you best.

    We are Unique

    Traditional schools sell courses through agencies. Agency margins reach up to 40%! Additionally, agencies try to sell you expensive courses, since that’s how they earn more.

    Klazz has no middlemen and therefore no added costs! We have our own study advisors who are language travel experts and will tell you everything as it is; while agency representatives are often badly informed about schools that they sell.

    Language schools traditionally pay high maintenance and rental costs, even when their facilities are empty. All this adds to your course price.

    At Klazz we rent rooms in coworking spaces. We pay for facilities only when we need them.
    Additionally - we can always pick just the best locations with optimal conditions. And our students get to engage with interesting locals who work in those spaces!

    Our teachers are professional independent freelancers. We build a strong relationship with them and they work with us only when we need them. This helps us to optimize costs, provide better quality control and assure the best teacher for each class.

    This also means our teachers have more flexibility and higher responsibility, which allows us to pay them above the industry average. That’s how we attract the best teachers and how we keep them happy and motivated. Happy teachers = happy students!

    We significantly decrease our operational costs by having no physical sales offices, no “old school” paper forms and almost no manual processing. That’s also better for the environment!

    Digitalization and optimized processes are at the core of our company, which makes the experience also easier and more convenient for our customers.
