English Now!

A Special Place To Learn English

Engage. Enjoy. Thrive.

We take a distinctive approach to English language study. Our students benefit from personalized instruction in unusually small classes. Our in-person group classes enroll a maximum of six students. Online group classes are even smaller, with a maximum of four students. Learn more about our school in English, Español, العربية, 中文, Français, Deutsche, Bahasa Indonesia, Italiano, 日本語, 한국어, فارسی, Português, Русский, Türk, አማርኛ, or монгол хэл; and contact us and tell us more about your language education needs and interests. Ask about our Summer 2021 programs for children and high school/university students. We look forward to meeting you!

Serving the Washington, D.C. area international community since 1991, English Now! offers English language courses for students of all levels. Our school is conveniently located close to the Bethesda Metro, and we also offer classes offsite at embassies as well as at students’ homes or offices. In addition to classes at our school and offsite, we also offer online small group classes and private lessons, taking our personalized approach to language education to the world.


Engage. Our classes are engaging. Small class sizes encourage students to participate actively in class discussions. Research shows that small classes are one of the most important factors in excellence in language education. Participate in student activities, experience an active program of volunteering and community service, and get outside, to better experience life in the United States.

Enjoy. We offer a warm, welcoming atmosphere to a wonderfully diverse group of students. Our classes are small, so our instructors know our students, and our students know each other. Our center is also small enough so the school community is caring and supportive. Studying a language is challenging, and our joyful atmosphere helps many students persevere to achieve their goals.

Thrive. "Thrive" means to develop well, to prosper, and to flourish. We hope that our students thrive in their communication skills, their relationships, and their lives, through their studies with us.

Our classes are probably very different than language classes in your country or elsewhere in the U.S. We look forward to welcoming you to our school or meeting you online. Visit us or schedule a video call to experience just how different English Now!’s approach to language education can be.
