I spent 3 weeks learning English with Martina in St. Ives - great place, great surf and fantastic teacher that really makes you feel at home! It's so beautiful there and Martina takes you to all the best places and you meet loads of nice people too. Loved it and shall never forget it!

"Martina, with her relaxed style in a comfortable ‘teaching-from-home environment’, put my son Nik in the best possible condition to learn the English language. And, it has to be said, this was no easy feat: an individual course of three hours per day for a 12 year-old boy!!!
By being available and flexible [working around Nik’s surf lessons] Martina organised lessons for Nik in an optimal way.
Nik and I felt very much at home and the learning outcome was excellent; now that the new school year has started I can really measure and appreciate the difference the course has made. "

I am back to the office and already miss the magical St. Ives and Norfolk beaches, but not the seagulls!!! Lovely experience! Having fun while studying and seeing fantastic places! The course was adapted to my needs. Martina was friendly and patient and helped me with my English, and with the organization, including accommodation.

“In 2004 the Leach Restoration Project was set up in order to safeguard the Leach Pottery as a site of historical importance. The project greatly benefited from the publicity generated by pointblank’s (now Englishplus) press releases, which accompanied the Leach Appeal Fundraising Exhibition held by St Ives Ceramics. It kick-started the whole public awareness campaign and was a great success.”

“After 12 years in business of making handcrafted mirrors, I realised I had to let my outlets have some background info on the craftsperson to satisfy customer needs. But I just couldn’t find enough to say about myself or even the making process. I think it took Englishplus about an hour to come up with an angle. A couple of days later and I had a full 2-page story that is a joy to read and greatly enhances customer satisfaction at the point of sale. Marks 10 out of 10.”

Thanks a lot for my wonderful holidays which have become so much more than Walk & Talk.
I really enjoyed our time with shells and 'breezes', all the cheerful and splendid moments and – last but not least – our lessons. You have been a brilliant teacher all day, every day!
Best wishes for you and a big hug
