What our students say

Der Englischunterricht bei Jessica hat mir sehr Spass gemacht und ich konnte in kurzer Zeit viel lernen. Der Unterricht war sehr professionell strukturiert und individuell auf mich zugeschnitten. Jessica hat durch verschiedene Lerntechniken und Lehrbücher den Unterricht sehr abwechslungsreich gestaltet und auch auf meine Bedürfnisse angepasst. Ich empfehle jedem der einen Englischkurs machen möchte, zu ONE ENGLISH zu gehen.


Passed FCE

ONE ENGLISH is a tailor-made school. The lessons are prepared according to your needs. I really appreciate the teachers’ knowledge and the support they provide when preparing for exams.


Private lessons

Shortly before I passed my C1 exam, I booked two private lessons by Jessica for the finishing touch. Her teaching fulfilled immediately my expectations. Why? For two major reasons. First, she teaches with „drive”. It means, she knows what, when and how to teach you so that at the end of the lesson you have done remarkable progress on your way to your certificate or your own target. And the best is, you really feel good and confident! This is one core ability of a teacher. The second one by Jessica’s teaching ist her capacity to unterstand at once what you really need in order to reach the next step. With her founded Knowledge she gives you fitted answers and explanations to your questions. Now I’m on the way to C2…and of course with her help. I’ve gaps to fill and she’ll give her best once more, for sure.


Passed CAE

Until recently, it was unimaginable for me to reach the level for the CAE-certificate. With the help of Jessica, I had made in a short period of time a lot of progress to achieve this my aim. The lessons were always very well and varied prepared. Every single time, it was a lot of fun to join the class and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Vor ein paar Monaten hätte ich es kaum für möglich gehalten, das CPE im ersten Anlauf zu bestehen. Jessica hat mir nicht nur geholfen, mich optimal auf die Prüfung vorzubereiten sondern hat mir auch viel Mut zugesprochen. Die Lektionen waren auf mich abgestimmt, so dass das Lernen richtig Spass machte. Ich ging immer sehr gerne zu ihr in den Kurs und die Zeit verflog im Nu. Vielen Dank für Alles!


Passed CPE

Ich bin sehr dankbar, konnte ich den Kurs bei Jessica machen! Sie motivierte mich sehr und glaubte an mich, das hat mir sehr geholfen. Man erhält  regelmässig Übungsmaterial, welches sehr unterstützend und sinnvoll ist. Jede Lektion wurde so angepasst, dass ich an meinen Defiziten arbeiten konnte und ständig Fortschritte machte. Die Feedbacks, wo ich gerade stehe, haben mir geholfen dran zu bleiben und weiter zu machen. Ich ging sehr gerne in den Kurs, Jessicas aufgestellte und motivierende Art und die hilfreichen Übungen in den Lektionen, machten es einem leicht. Danke Jessica, jetzt hab ich endlich Diplom C1!


Passed CAE

I had the pleasure of working with Jessica for almost a year. Going to her classes felt more like meeting up with a good friend. She is not only a really nice and friendly person, but also an amazing teacher. She was always very well-prepared and helped me whenever I got stuck. Also, I went from being very shy to being able to have a real conversation. I highly recommend ONE ENGLISH for everyone looking for an easy way to improve their English.


Passed CAE

Sarah und Jessica erkannten schnell was für ein Lerntyp ich bin und gestalteten den Unterricht meinen Bedürfnissen entsprechend. Beide unterrichten die Lektionen abwechslungsreich und individuell, was ich sehr schätze und für sie sprechen. Dadurch war es mir möglich innert kürzester Zeit grosse Fortschritte zu absolvieren. Sie arbeiten sehr genau und professionell, deshalb bin ich für die Lektionen gerne von Zürich nach Basel gependelt.

Dank Jessica konnte ich innert kurzer Zeit mein Englischdiplom erfolgreich absolvieren. Sie ist herzlich, hat viel Geduld und kann super gut erklären. Von B2 habe ich es sehr schnell zu einem C1 geschafft! Ihre Fachkompetenz und Motivation haben mir sehr geholfen, dranzubleiben und nicht aufzugeben. Dazu wurde ich mit viel Lernmaterialien und -methoden unterstützt, so dass ich sicher an die Prüfung gehen konnte. Ich möchte mich vom Herzen bei Jessica bedanken. Sie hat viel dazu beigetragen, dass ich heute ZWEI (genau, richtig gelesen) Englischdiplome (IELTS und CAE) in der Hand habe.
