Academic Excellence:
All teachers are degree qualified and also hold post-graduate qualifications in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). We are proud of the world-class calibre of our teaching team. At BROWNS, we are careful to choose career teachers who are passionate about the ESL classroom and ensuring our students receive the best possible education. The Academic Management Team conducts regular teaching observations and feedback sessions with our teachers, as well as providing a supportive and collegial atmosphere in which ideas and good practice can be shared.

Our philosophy is that for every hour that the student spends in class, they should be able to identify clear learning outcomes. Our teaching team is responsible for providing this focused learning environment. However, virtual classes don't mean dull classes! At BROWNS, we want to bring the language and learning alive. Our classes are hands-on, communicative and interactive. We want to motivate, inspire, enthuse, and empower students to achieve rapid progress in the English language. Students use e-books and digital materials, which are available to students 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Free BROWNS Online Placement Test (BOPT):
The BROWNS Online Placement Test (BOPT) measures a test taker's ability in English. We use it to place our students in the right class for their individual learning needs. We have integrated the BOPT with our Study Plan Designer to ensure students are placed in classes that align with their academic skills and English proficiency levels. This allows us to provide a more accurate recommended pathway to future studies. The BOPT provides students with convenient online real-time testing and results.
