A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER - DAN NEWTON
English Training Lounge came into being in December 2009 as an idea I had to further support vocational ESL students at a college I was teaching at in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. In 2011 English Training Lounge was registered as a limited company and we went from a support group to an English teaching and training school with a global reach. It was clear that the needs of many English language students were not set in stone and that each student had their own particular English learning desires. We put together a number of surveys to find out exactly what type of English teaching and training potential students wanted. The data received showed a large amount of dissatisfaction with traditional ESL learning courses and that a lot of what was taught in the classroom had little to no relevance to the students academic or career pathways. With this information I wanted to design an English language school that was about the learner, offering what they need and want in order for them to get the most out of their learning experience with us. I knew that ETL had to be as flexible and as varied in its English language teaching and training as the needs of each of our students. In short, we had to be specific in our curricula and offer as many English learning routes as required by all ESL learners.
We aim to be the world’s leading online and face to face language School/company and believe the key to success is straightforward training courses that cater to our clients' and learners' needs. Depending on the client's requirements, we can deliver a fully personalized training programme or if needed a more structured, traditional learning pathway - all at a time and place that is convenient for the learner.
I hope that all who come to study and train with English Training Lounge have the best experience possible and progress in their English studies to reach their future goals.

HOW IT WORKS
The English Training Lounge method of learning gives the learner the ability to speak English in a confident and authentic way. This offers a marked improvement in the learner's listening and comprehension skills. This in turn leads to a more fluent and rhythmic English reading ability and pronunciation.
ETL offers programmes of study that fit easily into anyone's lifestyle. ETL learners connect with our trainers in person or online via a number of conferencing platforms, Skype @etl-english being the most popular. After every 50-minute lesson the learner follows a checklist of things that they can now do and say in English or chosen language of study. With the trainer's helps, the learner starts to highlight and recognize their mistakes and areas of their English/language abilities that need improvement. With the guidance of the ETL the learner actually starts to discover English or language of study for themselves!
