It all started when a group of educators grew frustrated with the status quo. They observed a lack of creativity, ingenuity, and drive in the field of English Language Teaching. They began to question the way things were done, looking at the bigger picture and asking themselves, “why do we do what we do in the classroom?”
From this, they began creating new lessons, experimenting with approaches and techniques, and sharing among themselves. This sparked interest, and soon they were developing a community of like-minded and passionate teachers. Thus, Learn YOUR English was born.
At LYE, we firmly believe that complacency has no place in education. We strive to foster a community of teachers, learners, and institutes that challenge themselves to constantly learn, grow, and take risks in their education. What follows below is our professional philosophy.
