My name is Kevin Depledge and I am the founder of English Language Coaching. When I set up my service in November 2009, my aim was really clear:

To offer an English language advancement service for ambitious learners…that actually works.

I have met literally hundreds of driven learners that want, or need, to reach a truly advanced level of English; but cannot make further progress. These are some of the most common concerns I hear…

I’ve been studying for years but I feel stuck!

The majority of our clients have been studying English for years. Many have lived, or are currently living/working, in the UK or an English-speaking country. But, despite their effort and immersion in the language they have not been able to push through to that next level.

I speak well but I need to dominate English!

Most of our clients are professionals that speak very well. General conversational demands pose no problem. Academically-speaking they are advanced. But, when they have to explain little details, nuances and abstract concepts, in real contexts, they really notice their limits.

I don’t know how to reach an advanced level!

Most learners are improving on some level through various random methods/activities. But they can’t make that big, noticeable shift because they have no plan. They are guessing their own way to improvement or placing their trust in courses/classes which also do not really follow any results-based strategy or plan.

Perhaps you are one of these people?

Maybe you ‘get’ English and feel, at least, in terms of your understanding and experience with English, you are (or should be) an advanced speaker?

But when a complex topic forces you out of your conversational comfort zone or a higher-pressure situation makes you nervous; do you feel that your true ability is actually quite below your true potential?

I work with all sorts of learners and levels with all sorts of needs and issues.

But, I set up my service specifically for ‘driven’ learners that really want to communicate in English at a truly advanced level i.e. not just fluently but impressively.

These are the people I am excited to help and who’ll get best results from our service.

If you are an ambitious, ‘already quite-advanced’ learner with a real desire to improve, but, unsure how to progress and frustrated with conventional approaches; we can help you!

We can help you because…

WE HAVE A clear plan AND STRATEGY AND KNOW how TO HELP PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

They have a very carefully-structured and effective plan. Since working with my coach, Kevin, I have noticed quite a shift in my ability; even within the first month. My inability to express details effectively was affecting my confidence at work but, I can now express myself in a clearer and more structural manner.

We are confident we can help you get real results; because we know how to get results

Finally I now feel my English has started to genuinely improve! Highly recommended indeed! My job demanded a much better level of English but even after 9 years in the UK I struggled to express myself clearly; this truly committed and passionate organization helped me break through my barriers.

We enjoy what we do and would be honoured to help you.

The dedication of my coach to my English was extremely impressive! I felt supported and guided every step of the way. My managers noticed my progress. As I gained in self-confidence with my English, I felt more relaxed in my relationships with colleagues and communication is now easier and more enjoyable.

Our service is not just another language learning service.

We are not interested in maintenance or minor results.

Our mentality, approach, material, strategy, commitment, and most importantly, results are on another level.  Have a look at what some of the people we have worked with have to say about the experience and the results.

Communication is now easier and more enjoyable!

‘The dedication of my coach to my English was extremely impressive! This service and their plan and approach is totally different from ‘normal’ classes or ‘teaching’. I felt supported and guided every step of the way. My managers noticed my progress. As I gained in self-confidence with my English, I felt more relaxed in my relationships with colleagues and communication is now easier and more enjoyable’

Ms. Myriam Allamel,

They commit professionally but also personally!

‘There are many things which differentiate my coach Kevin, from other instructors. But, first and foremost, would be the intensity and sincerity of his commitment to my English. This was not purely a commercial relationship. He did not count or measure his effort and support. He committed professionally, but also personally, and genuinely wanted results as much as I did’

Ms. Mariana Leal,
Project Manager, Surrey County Council, UK

For anyone wishing to speak at an advanced level!

‘I found this online coaching program to be very effective. Strongly recommended to anyone wishing to speak at an advanced level. The feedback  & reports my coach sent after each session were great! I could see where improvement was necessary and how to advance my English in these areas. My coach worked as hard as I did on my English not only during each session but also between sessions’

Dr. Baoyu Wang,
International Service Manager, Janet UK

Very, very well-organized and practically effective !

‘I teach students in the process of becoming English teachers. I consider myself advanced but, my limits become apparent when explaining tricky little details or big, complex ideas. I doubted I could find a service to help as once you are quite advanced it can be hard to improve further. But, was totally ‘blown away’ by this service! Very, very well-organized and practically effective service which provides real results’

Mr. Enzo Pescara,
Teacher trainer, University of Chile, Chile

Best instructor I have ever worked with!

‘I have tried many services but Kevin, my coach, is the best instructor I have ever had. He helped me pass my IELTS exam with a great mark (and only two weeks preparation!). His dedication is 100%.  He takes on each case personally and he knows exactly how to help you improve. I could do my sessions before work in the morning; so perfect for ‘busy’ professionals that really need to push their English to next level’

Ms. Laura Serra,
Digital marketing specialist, CloudRecover, Australia

Now able to communicate more smoothly and efficiently!

‘One of the main benefits of this coaching service is that they show you ‘how’ to learn. I do not really know of any service that does this. But, I now know how to advance by myself here in London. So, English Language Coaching opened that door for me. They showed me how to immerse myself in the culture and convert my day-to-day situations into opportunities for learning’

Commercial Manager, Japanese trading company, UK
Kevin Depledge - Founder

‘Hello. My name is Kevin Depledge. I can help you advance your English. Simple as that. I am keenly aware that very few services provide ‘real’ results and you may no longer really believe in any language improvement method or service! However, you will find our approach is different. It is not ‘magic’ nor is it a ‘method’. It is simply an effectively-organized plan, based on common-sense, sincere dedication and a deep consideration of the reality, not theory, of what is practically required to reach an advanced level. I have channelled a great deal of personal energy and passion into English Language Coaching; which, if you are truly committed to improve, I will naturally direct towards you and the advancement of your English’
