Basic Plan

The basic and premium plans cover the exact same thing. The difference between the plans is that the basic plan does not have face-to-face online private lessons and you will work in a Facebook group of 2-4 people. You can learn the material and submit your homework at your own pace. Check out the details here.

 

Premium Plan

The premium plan has face-to-face online private lessons where you work with Aiko. For more information, click here

Both plans are for advanced English learners who are:

  • Company executives and business owners
  • Actors, singers, comedians, TV personalities in the US
  • In the United States, and already working in an English environment
  • Wanting to improve pronunciation effectively
  • Comfortable using English only to communicate

You will learn not only vowels and consonants,

but also rhythm, intonation and breathing which are very important for speaking American English.
