As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with others.

Kevin has an amazing grasp of the subject matter - he even knows English regional dialects really well even though he's from the US! He breaks down what could be extremely dry and tedious subjects - if taught badly - into entertaining, bite-sized episodes along specific themes.

At the moment he has just finished looking at the influence of Viking settlements on Old English prior to the Norman conquest. I never knew that so much of the modern language was derived from these Old Norse influences. Really fascinating. Highly recommended.

I like this company. Their professional staff and advisers always provide quality services. Booking and related to it processes take not more than several business days, that's why I can consult them right before my trips. Recommend it!
