Hi! I'm Thaís, English and French tutor and founder of Influency. Welcome to our website!
  • 1.Why study at Influency?

    At Influency, you have a tutor that plans your course according to your goals and you also you have the opportunity to take private speaking classes with different teachers. We like that mix because you have both the special care of a tutor, but you also have the chance to practice the language with other people, get used to different accents and take part in exciting encounters.

  • 2.How does the online class work?

    Our classes are online and individual. We have live audio and video using Skype. All you need is a computer with webcam and a stable Internet connection. We also use an online whiteboard very easy to access which makes our class more interactive and didactic.

  • 3.What’s the difference between the speaking practice short course and the basic course?

    The speaking practice is a short course for those who have previously studied a language and who now want to gain fluency and confidence. It’s also a good choice if you want to practise for an interview or to prepare yourself for a trip. The learner will participe in three private speaking sessions with native speakers prepared according to their goals. A tutor will receive feedback after each speaking session and will prepare a final class with tips on how the learner can improve and pursue their studies. The basic course, on the other hand, is a course for beginners or people who still need some basic knowledge. In this course, we work on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and listening. In spite of having one main tutor, the learner also have the opportunity to have speaking practice with different people along the course.

  • 4.What is the duration of each class?

    The duration of classes in our Basic Courses are defined between the learner and his teacher, according to your goals and to your schedule. However, we recommend beginners to start with two 1-hour classes per week. In the Speaking Mini-Courses, each speaking session are 45-minute long.
