The Britlish Philosophy
I’m Richard and I’m the creator of Britlish. I created this website because I love English, love teaching English, and want to help as many students improve their English as possible. I’ve been teaching English since 2003, first in classrooms in Spain and then exclusively online since 2006. Like all of us, I have a limited number of hours in a day. This means I can only teach a limited number of students with one-to-one English classes on Skype. I knew, when I started teaching, that I had to find a way to reach far more students if I was to make a real difference to the biggest possible number of student’s lives. Britlish was the answer.
Britlish is a one-man-band, which means that it is entirely the work of one dedicated, enthusiastic English teacher, me, and is not owned or controlled by investors looking to make a quick profit from the needs of students of English. This remarkable fact means that I am free to follow my own, personal way of teaching English which the years have shown works. It also means that my students, both private and those signing up for a Britlish Membership, get a very personal service which is second to none and always will be.
YouTube Video English Lessons
I turned to YouTube and have made well over 1,000 video English lessons which have been watched millions of times. However, YouTube videos only provide a passive learning experience for students, and I know that a more active approach is the only real way for teachers to teach and students to learn.
The Britlish Library
The Britlish Library is my way of giving students an active way of learning which brings together the best of my video English lessons and the best of my personal one-to-one classes without the associated costs for students. Best still, students can request a lesson about any problem they are having and I will go ahead and make it for them and all the other Britlish Library Members.
As a Britlish Library member, students enjoy lessons directly with me at a fraction of the cost of my one-to-one classes. Students can ask for specific lessons and I will create the lesson for them and for all of the other students who are having the same problems. The lessons in the Britlish Library are fully interactive and packed with audio and visual material, along with numerous exercises giving students immediate feedback on their performance. This active approach makes this type of learning not only effective, but also fun.
Most Common English Words
This free-to-use system is part of the Britlish Library and helps students to learn, remember, and use the 4,015 most common British English words. Britlishers can use the system for FREE without having to have a Britlish Library Membership, but it works best in conjunction with the hundreds of lesson in the Britlish Library.
Vocabulary Memoriser System
The unique Britlish Vocabulary Memoriser System is another free-to-use component of the Britlish Library. Designed to be used alongside the many lessons in the Britlish Library, it can also be used on its own to help students to keep a comprehensive, searchable, and testable record of new vocabulary. It’s free to use for all Britlishers.
