Actor as an English teacher

During your sessions with 1to1PROGRESS you will learn a whole range of business-related vocabulary, Idioms and typical expressions. Why not turn to actors between your lessons to keep improving? They can help you become comfortable with what you've learned in context!

My favorite Business and Work films and series will help you improve your listening skills. Turning on subtitles will improve your reading skills too! Remember, however, that you shouldn't just watch the movie for this to work. You have to actively deal with the dialogues and vocabulary.
