I've just completed the Advanced Grammar For Teachers and all I can say is: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The course has led me to extensive reflection on everything I thought I knew about grammar and filled me with hunger- for more knowledge. Thank you for such an inspiring course. I can't wait for more.

What our Students Say

Aida Vosoughi

It has been a few months since I have joined this community. It was exactly what I needed. Instead of boring formal classes they focus on learning at all times which they call "learning in the wild". I strongly recommend this network to anyone who wishes to improve their skills.

Selin Goran

I took their online course and I learned a lot. The way they teach is different than other courses. Learning has never been this much fun. In short, it gives me hope to know that there are still people in the world that are so dedicated to their job. Thank you LYE.

Danilo Pereira

Learn YOUR English Network is an educational startup with the aims of development of teachers and students. They lead their community to rethink the way a language is taught and learnt by producing top-notch quality podcasts, courses, newsletters, and so on. I highly recommend their work!

Meet Your Teachers

Leo Gomez

My name is Leo Gomez and I’m the CVO and a founding member of Learn YOUR English. I have devoted my life exclusively to education and a substantial portion of my work in English Language Teaching has involved, teaching, educating, and developing language teachers both in pre- and in-service capacities. I have an MA in TEFL and Corpus Linguistics (University of Birmingham) and a Delta (Cambridge University). My research interests include humanistic education, philosophy of education, psychology of learning, critical pedagogy, task-based learning, podcasting as a tool for development, and learner-centered education. Leo’s 20+ years of teaching experience overseas include 6 countries and a broad spectrum of classes, ranging from general English, exam English, ESP, to teacher education courses; the last 6 years of my teaching have been devoted solely to English for Academic Purposes at universities and colleges in Canada.. As an EAP instructor, I employed my experience with data-driven learning and task-based education to promote agency, awareness, and authenticity in the learning process. Leo has developed a process for growing audiences and building authority, both from his work with universities and colleges and @Teachertalkingtime podcast interviews with leading thinkers, such as Scott Thornbury, Jane Willis, Patsy Lightbown, Susan Hunston, and more. I am excited to have you on this journey with us!

Michael Landry

Mike has worked as a language instructor, teacher trainer, and director of studies in East Asia and Canada. Mike began his ELT career in South Korea as a business-English, exam preparation (TOEFL/IELTS), and EAP instructor. He then moved on to China and Japan where he assumed a variety of ESL teaching and administrative roles. Since returning to Canada, he has taught EAP at universities and continues to develop curriculum for a variety of English language programs. He has also served of provincial and national professional bodies. In addition to his ELT interests, Mike enjoys being outdoors and taking in some sports.

Andrew Woodbury

In his career, Andrew has worked as a language instructor, teacher trainer, and director of studies. Over that time, he has delivered a wide variety of courses both in Canada and abroad. He started teaching in Costa Rica, where he lived and worked for over three years. In his time there, he delivered business-English and teacher-training courses, and would later become the director of studies of two separate institutions. In Canada, he has worked at a variety of language schools, colleges, and universities teaching EAP Foundation Courses and continuing his teacher-training responsibilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still not sure? These questions should help

  • Who is the school for?

    The LYE School of learning is for people who love to learn. No matter your age, your English level, or where in the world you live, if you want to improve, we can help you. If this is you, our school is ready for you: I love to learn. I want to be more confident in my English ability. I need more practice outside of the classroom. I want to study with students from other countries. I have a tight budget and a busy schedule.

  • What happens after I register?

    You start learning immediately! After signing in to our school, you have access to all the lessons, including from past months. You don’t need to wait for any processing or long forms - just start learning right away.

  • What if I don't have time to do all the lessons?

    No problem! Think of this like the language gym: you can come and go as you like. We provide many opportunities for learning for many different people. You can choose which are best for you. We don’t want you to feel stressed about doing everything - choose which days you want to learn and which lessons as well. It’s completely up to you!

  • What if my English level is low?

    We have lessons for all levels. Each month we add materials with different levels in mind. So, advanced students will not be bored and beginners will not feel too challenged.

  • Can I study with my friends?

    Of course! We encourage people to study together and develop a community. Tell your friends and study together!

  • What if I have something specific I want to learn?

    We listen to you! If you have something specific you want to learn, let us know and we’ll create a lesson about it. It’s that simple.

  • What if I have another question?

    You can always contact us anytime. Whenever you have a question, you can reach our team by email at: info@learnyourenglish.com. Leo, Mike, or Andrew will reply within 24 hours.

  • What if I want to learn more?

    We hope the School of Learning has many opportunities for you to improve, but we know you may have very specific skills you want to learn. Just for that, we have a library of short tutorials to help you. From speaking skills to how to read articles to academic writing, we have many options for you. You can find our “Quick Fix” series here. We keep these prices low as well so we can make learning as financially accessible as possible. Once inside the SOL, you will also have access to a list of professional and highly qualified teachers if you're looking for private tutoring.
