NEED AN ENGLISH BOOST?
Welcome to the top online learning center for INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED English learners who feel like they've hit a plateau, or want something different in their English lessons.
We offer you a place to come each week to check your homework and upgrade your English fluency in a short period of time.
Our learning philosophy is learning the language is secondary. Sweed Academy teaches more than English.
In our lessons and courses, we work with the student to find material that the student will find the most interesting or helpful by using: articles, videos, podcasts, games, trivia, or anything else that will make it worth your time and money.
BECOME A PARTICIPATING MEMBER TODAY!
We believe in many hands make light work. In the same way, if many people give a little, everybody eats cheaply. English is a global language. We don't believe that learning how to communicate fluently should only be for people who have money. If you are willing to put in the work, you should have the opportunity.
Let's make a deal...
Our part: To provide as much quality content (video lessons, blogs, live chats, live classes, etc.) as we can for as cheaply as we can.
Your part: To be a participating member, which means you put in the work you want for the results that you want.

THREE KEYS TO SUCCESS
What is your #ThingUnderTheThing? The thing that is driving you to learn English.
This is confidence. How do we grow in our self-belief? Celebrate the small victories in your process and track your progress.
When this becomes a priority, and you follow these principles, you will feel your language open up and flow more naturally.
PLUS the overriding ingredient that many systems are missing is

Motivation. Self-belief. Consistency. Jesse Sweed started teaching English in South Korea in 2006. He then traveled to Spain, and now he teaches English online to students all over the world. As the founder of Sweed Academy, he uses that experience to create the most practical and useful courses and English lessons possible that will be useful for teachers and learners of English.
Hey there, English speakers. I'm Jesse. As it says above, I've been an TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teacher since 2006. I've learned a lot in that time, and I want to share my experiences with you to help you in the classroom whether you're a teacher or a student.
WE CAN ALL USE A FRESH PERSPECTIVE. This is what I'm offering you. The three first words of this bio are the three keys to success when you're studying to be fluent in another language. There's one more key factor that umbrella's over all of these three... ACCOUNTABILITY.
I've helped students with:
passing exams, improving conversation skills, preparing for job interviews, public speaking, grammar, writing, or just general English improvement
If you have any ideas for future courses, let me know. I'm always open to suggestions. I want to help you get to the next level.
Is this year gonna be like last?
