The team

Rachel Ashby

at the moment. I have been teaching English for more than 17 years. I have lived overseas in Slovakia where I first realised just how difficult it can be to communicate in a foreign language without the proper tools and confidence.

I was a programme coordinator at an excellent Business English school based in the UK where I taught many interesting people from many Global Companies such as Siemens, Michelin, Dell, LaFarge Braas as well as individuals from fields such as football and TV.

I spent ten years as Head of English department and worked as an English Language lecturer at a University in Birmingham. I founded World English in January 2014 because I saw a need to offer good quality English language training to people who are busy in their day to day life and cannot take the time to come to the UK or any other English speaking country to improve their language skills and build their confidence and fluency.


Our aim

We strive to make English lessons available to people from anywhere in the world who are looking for the convenience and flexibility of online learning but with the feel of a face-to-face lesson.

Computers are an excellent tool but with learning English, you need the human contact in order to maintain motivation, have real feedback and to adapt to your changing needs and learning styles.



As we are based in the UK we operate at GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) from November to March and BST (British Summer Time / GMT+1) from April to October. This offers clients around the world extra flexibility as they can schedule lessons at a time which is convenient to them, when lessons or courses may not be available locally.

Our current local time is Tuesday 23 April 2024 05:38 BST.
