What we're about

Do you want to get a good job here? Do you want to make friends with locals? Or do you just want to enjoy life more here in Vancouver?

If you are someone who feels like your level of English is stopping you from getting these things, this group is for you. In this group, we will help you speak English fluently and confidently like a native speaker. Our meetup is a safe place for you to learn and practice speaking with native English speaking instructors. We teach our classes in real life instead of in a classroom. We go into real life settings such as grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants and teach vocabulary and expressions native speakers use.

This is not like your typical language meetup. You will be learning from actual native English speakers, not other people struggling to learn English. This group is for people who actually want to improve their English and want real results in their life. Though our lessons are fun and social, we are not a social club.

In our lessons, your English will improve because we help you correct your mistakes and teach you the way English speakers actually speak. This is why your English will improve with us - perfect practice makes perfect. Our classes are quite small (2-5 students) to allow for more personalized and effective instruction. Our lessons cost between $15-20 per lesson, however, if you are serious about improving your English, we recommend purchasing a membership (https://www.beyondfluency.ca/memberships).

We currently offer the following lessons:

Survival English

In our Survival English lessons, we teach you vocabulary and expressions that people use in their daily lives in real life settings. We cover a range of topics including grocery shopping, clothes shopping, cooking and dining out. As your English improves, we will get you interacting more with real people. These lessons are for intermediate students.
