Student review:

"Brilliant. I have attended many English courses but they never helped me  to really progress. I always remained at the same level of speaking. Book Club School is definitely innovative. I bought the one to one lessons with Geoff and we chose the book "The Thursday Murder Club" because I love mystery books.  
Having to prepare for the weekly lesson, I found this commitment to reading very useful.  I found myself thinking in English thanks to the obligation to read in English a little bit every day. And when I meet Geoff, we have a topic to talk about, the book, and a vocabulary of new words to use that I've built up while reading. 
I really like this method, it's fun and I feel I'm becoming more and more fluent. I definitely want to continue."
