The best questions out there

The unique quality of questions makes each Mentals class a great opportunity to practice spoken English. Mentals allows for a moment of genuine thinking and creativity in a world of otherwise ready-made answers and solutions. The desire to answer each question outweighs all linguistic barriers!

A great teacher

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.

Freedom in learning

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.

Professional feedback

There is plenty of talking time for you in Mentals, but each class ends with an objective feedback about the quality of your language: its strong and weak points. It's easier to get better knowing which way to go!

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.

AGA ROK

The questions are always very interesting and they encourage both thinking and speaking. I always come back here with pleasure.

AGA KUKLA

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 :)

EMILIA

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.

JOANNA SZYMASZEK

Intriguing conversations, uptakes and conclusions would make these lessons valuable even if they were in my native language.

MARIUSZ TWARDOWSKI

The benefits of Mentals

You'll overcome the language barrier

The questions in Mentals are designed in such a way as to make you speak. They are itching for an answer, and at the same time there are no right or wrong answers. Have fun answering them, and don't worry if you forget a word or particular grammar construction - there is a professional linguist ready to help!

You'll develop your vocabulary

Mentals is all about expressing yourself and connecting the dots, that is why the emphasis is put on words and phrases most useful for that purpose, leaving the names of all articles of clothing for later. All new vocabulary items from each class end up on Quizlet, a cool and free app on your phone or tablet.

you'll surpass native speakers

Our goal in Mentals is precision, clarity and depth of your language. Mentals will sharpen your perception in second language, and as a result, what you say will be clearer, smarter and more coherent than the thoughts of many people for whom English is their native language. And what about your local accent? Nothing. It only adds up to your charisma.

You'll gain self-confidence

Mentals will make it clear to you that language is primarily a tool for communication. It's not art for art's sake, but a carrier of something much more important, namely the meaning. The classes will help you get rid of the fear of mistakes - you'll take the innitiative and transition to offence!

You'll open your mind

Here in Mentals, we extract the wisdom trapped in language. You'll get another chance to learn words and concepts which you learned as a child, but this time, as an adult, you'll be wide awake and the result will exceed your wildest dreams!

You'll gain vitality

There are classes in Mentals after which you actually feel much younger. Such is the power of dealing with meaningful things: they add to your vitality in contrast to meaningless stuff which sucks out all vital forces from an individual.
