Individual

You will have four face-to-face hours with a native and certified language instructor per week. You will also work on-line in your virtual book to cement your learning and practice your English in between classes. Our instructors are all native speakers with qualifications from Trinity, Cambridge and other such institutions. Check out the ‘Team’ page to meet us.

Each of our six levels lasts four months and corresponds to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) so for example, it would take a Starter student two years to graduate as Advanced (C1 on the CEFR), which is the equivalent of 851 points plus on the TOEIC, Band 7 on IELTS, A in FCE or 120 on the TOEFL.


Transient

We keep groups small too. From one student to six students per class. That means you get to your objective quicker. Also, each of our students completes a TOEIC test periodically to make sure they are making progress. Each level consists of around 84 hours including class time and on-line studying. The Council of Europe recommends 75 hours to pass a level on the CEFR.

There’s nothing to lose. Get started and discover your potential.

UE Blended Learning


Transient

At United English, we use a Blended Learning system, much like most colleges and universities in the world. The old saying, ‘the best of both worlds' summarizes Blended Learning aptly. The system works because having the receptive elements of study (reading, listening, and grammar focus) on-line allows us to make the face-to-face classes production focused, which means fluency increases faster. A student will come to class throughout the week; practice business English themes in class with a trained, native speaker, then go on-line to their private United English Blended Learning account and cement the new language they acquired in class. It’s so simple..

What makes United English different from the rest...

Native Speaker Teachers

All of our team are native speakers and certified TEFL or TESOL instructors. So you can practice and learn from a variety of real accents from people who are trained in helping you achieve fluency in English.

Native speakers means real accents in English!

Native speakers means real accents in English!


Our flexible schedule is unique!

Our flexible schedule is unique!

Flexible Schedule

At United English, we put you, the student first. That means you can choose when you want your class on a daily basis. So choose from 7am to 12pm, 4pm to 9pm or a Saturday schedule from 9am to 1pm. You can schedule a one hour class every day or two hours on two days a week. It's your schedule, you decide!


A Blended Learning Course

Our course is a Blended Learning course. That means it's the best of both worlds. You can study on-line and have face to face classes. But this also means that our face to face classes are production centered which means more speaking time for the student! This method makes achieving fluency faster as the learner is consistently reinforcing new language acquired in the classroom and on-line.

Blended Learning is the best of both worlds. Flexible study time and flexible class time. Perfect!

Blended Learning is the best of both worlds. Flexible study time and flexible class time. Perfect!

Support in English or Spanish

United English has a Support Team ready to help with any technical, scheduling or language related query one of our students may have. We also promise to reply within 24 hours!


Whiteboard Blogs

Every time we finish a class, our instructors take a quick photo of the class's board and post it up to a private blog accessible only by the members of that group. This way, students will always have a reference to the new language they learned, or the language they missed while away from any given class!

Our story

Our story


The Beginning

San Luis Potosi, where the first United English opened, in 1998.

In 1998, the first United English was established in San Luis Potosi. Co-founders Roger Kunz and wife, Tzetzangari Aguilar de Kunz decided to open the school after detecting a pressing need for quality language instruction. Together, they examined the Mexican language market and created an English language learning program structured around modern, European methods. The result was a system with smaller classes, an exclusive use of trained, native English speakers as instructors and a flexible schedule. It was an instant success and those three principles remain United English’s foundation today. Since then, United English has experienced rapid organic growth, leading to the development of One to One, which is a global service offering private classes one to one with native instructors. We now operate all around the world.

The Students

Transient

Our students are as diverse as we are. Executives, college students, blue-collar workers, foreign business travelers, and many more. Having classmates with different backgrounds and cultures from varying countries enriches each student’s learning experience while also providing a rare opportunity to network. Many times friendships or partnerships between United English students occur naturally. Certainly, at United English, speaking a second language isn’t the only thing our students take away from the experience.

The United English Method

Blended Learning is used all over the world.

The United English Team

Our TESOL certified staff provides insight and experience from various English speaking countries. Not only do we educate using different accents, but we also teach about the many cultures and traditions that exist within the language. Having native teachers from countries such as Ireland, Scotland, Australia, England and South Africa along with Americans and Canadians, exposes students to real challenges and encourages quicker acquisition. United English is also proud to be able to offer a wealth of knowledge in many different aspects of business. We have experience in areas such as HR development, marketing, finance, management and public speaking, just to name a few. With backgrounds and degrees in areas such as Education, Anthropology, Psychology, Sociology, Business, and even Drama, we give students a comprehensive learning experience that’s both informative and fun. Click here to learn more.
