He has appeared in international press including the The Independent, El País and Gulf News, featured in BBC documentaries and authored language courses for the Open University.
Olly started learning his first foreign language at age 19, when he bought a one-way ticket to Paris. With no exposure to languages growing up, and no natural talent for languages, Olly had to figure out how to learn French from scratch.
Twenty years later, Olly has studied languages from around the world and is considered an expert in the field.
Through his books and website, I Will Teach You A Language, Olly is known for teaching languages through the power of story.

It focuses on British culture, informal expressions, accent and history that is all unique to the UK.
Charlie has spent 6000+ hours teaching intermediate-advanced students since 2014 privately on Skype and has seen a lot of different styles of learning and while he believes there will never be a single CORRECT way to improve your English there are a large number of methods that people use that do waste people's time and prevent them from improving quickly.
So Charlie decided to create The Academy because he believes he knows a VERY effective way to improve your English quickly and enjoyably.
