We use a variety of methods in our classes and emphasize the methods
that you best respond to.
Our focus is always on conversation. Grammar is not explained, but rather demonstrated through practical examples (audiolingual method with a gradually increasing communicative approach).
Our materials are crafted in house and prioritize the vocabulary that you need the most at your level (high-frequency word window).
We are a local language school in the outskirts of Seattle WA, offering in-person and online language lessons worldwide.
We got a pretty high goal: to be a network of language instructors providing the most cutting-edge, effective language learning experience in the world.
You can be a part of it!
For only $60 a month, you attend a 1-hour-long lesson every week at our office with other students who are at the same level as you (subject to class availability).
Rather learn solo?
Great! Choose any of these formats below, and have individual lessons at a set time by you. You can change the format any time.
You can also invite 2-3 friends who are at your fluency level and form a small group class!
"When people ask me how I learned Portuguese I tell them I did so many things. But really OWN ESL was the BEST school."
"I recommend OWN ESL. They're super attentive and patient, and their method has greatly helped me develop my fluency in English."
