There are far more non-native speakers of English than native speakers today. As a result, the language the whole world is using to communicate and work is simpler and easier to learn. One thing that does not change, however, is the complexity of reality. By being more tolerant to pronounciation and grammar, Global English allows to focus on meaning and sense, emphasising what counts the most: communication and mutual understanding.
The quality of conversations depends on questions. And the unique quality of questions in Mentals turns each class into a real talk-show, and a great opportunity to practice your English. Mentals allows for a moment of genuine thinking and creativity in a world of otherwise ready-made answers and solutions. The questions are so good that you will do everything to answer them. And the desire to communicate outweighs all linguistic barriers.
Classes in Mentals are run by Jedrek Stepien: an experienced English teacher, a graduate of English, economics and cultural studies, an expert in the field of conversations. His way of running conversation classes resonates with students and teachers alike. His speech on "The Art of Conversation" was enthusiastically received at the Annual International Colloquium TESOL in Paris in 2015. Mentals is his brainchild run since 2013.
Each class in Mentals constitutes an independent whole. Meet five times a week or once a quarter to verify your progress. Build an intensive language training or treat Mentals as a compliment to your current English course. Advanced students may use Mentals to refine their skills, explore semantics and see how deep into meaning their language can pierce.
It's a very pleasant form of learning, and thanks to a mobile app it allows me to study at any time, even on holidays.
The questions are always very interesting and they encourage both thinking and speaking. I always come back here with pleasure.
You'll receive a bunch of phrases and idioms as a warm-up, and a concise feedback at the end of each lesson. I always finish my classes full of energy and motivation for further study :)
This school has been recomended to me by a friend of mine who said it had changed his life. I owe him a beer for that ;) The lessons simply force you to think, and such classes are not easy to come by.
Intriguing conversations, uptakes and conclusions would make these lessons valuable even if they were in my native language.
If you are looking for English classes based on speaking, not tests, then Mentals should be your first choice.
The school is excellent! The teacher is great! The method is completely different form what I have known sofar. It stimulates the brain, encourages creative thinking and prepares you for all kinds of linguistic situations :)
Each class in Mentals is one of a kind and happens only once, yet all of them share the same energy and passion, which make learning here an excellent experience.
Mentals helps you to gather your thoughts and transform the incessant stream of information into something valueable. It's a place where both professional knowledge as well as private fascination with gossip portals become an asset. All in the name of a clear and coherent answer!
