Communicative approach

Our classes are student-centered. We don’t lecture, we interact with our students and allow them to speak their mind. We encourage them to think outside of the box. What we do is give them much more than language skills. We help them build the confidence that they need to communicate in all sorts of settings, whether it be a friendly chat over a cup of coffee or a formal presentation.

Simulating a real-world environment

We create lesson plans that simulate a real-world environment. We have our students practice all four skills -speaking, listening, reading, and writing – and doing this we use authentic material. For example, watching TED talks, listening to podcasts or playing out certain scenarios drawn from everyday life are all part of our teaching strategies. We also invite guest lecturers and conduct educational field trips.

Native English proficiency

Our teachers have native English proficiency and are highly experienced and friendly. Many of them were students of a foreign language like you are now, therefore understand the challenges of learning a new language.

Small classrooms for better learning experience

We give personal attention to our students. Our class size tops out at 18 students so that each and every student gets the attention they need to improve fast.


Hi, my name is Emili Gomez from Valencia, Venezuela. Since I started my studies in Mentora my English has improved a lot, as much as writing, speaking, and listening. I think this is the meaning of success, that you totally improved all your skills. Mentora is so good and everyone who studies here is very lucky to be part of such a good language school. My favorite teacher is Brandon. He is very friendly and understanding.


Hi, My name is Panisara. I am a Thai student who has studied here for almost 2 years. Honestly, I really really love this college. We are such a family, I feel happy every session to join the class. Every teacher makes me feel free to ask and talk, especially enjoy the class even though what we are studying is quite difficult.


My name is Shuudertsetseg, I am from Mongolia. I have studied at Mentora College for over 1 year. My College is about a structured and efficient curriculum that helps me apply everything that I study in real life. Having a set of brilliant professors who are willing to go to great lengths for students, only adds to its perks.
