Our Learning Centres

Our main centre is based in Saint Pierre, Moka, just off the Vivea Business Park roundabout.  Classes are also available at Westcoast International Primary School in Cascavelle – both beautiful, spacious and well-equipped campuses which provide excellent venues for learning.  With great transport links in these areas and ample parking, you should have no trouble finding us.

We are strong believers in the benefits of learning in nature so have designed a syllabus that allows our classes to be held indoors and outdoors – a perfect blend to promote comfortable, creative, collaborative and communicative learning environments.  We keep group sizes small to offer our learners a more personalised learning journey and offer parents better value for money.

 

Our Approach

We believe that every learner is an individual and is capable of great things, given the opportunity to grow.  Through level tests and diagnostic needs analysis, we evaluate our learners’ strengths and weakness so that we can fully understand how we can best help them achieve their individual learning goals. 

We focus on language development through customised blended learning programmes – face to face and online.  You get expert language instruction, supported by modern and personalised e-learning platforms… the best of both worlds!

Learn Online

Using the latest teaching methods and technology (Edu-tech) platforms, we are able to offer our students modern, efficient and essential tools to enhance learning.  Our Successs English online learning platform – SELP is customised with educational ‘learn English’ activities and games which best suit our student’s language level.

Our learners can access SELP using their individual login details which will allow you to continue learning at home or on the go – 24/7. As parents ourselves, we believe in offering good value for money so include all subscriptions for FREE.  

Learn in the Classroom

In the classroom, we use a communicative style of teaching to adequately challenge and engage our learners. We believe that learning happens most successfully when students are intrinsically motivated – in other words when they are interested and having fun!

That is why all the content we use is age-appropriate and customised to make classes more relevant and enjoyable. We know, from experience, that one size does not fit all!

We do this by providing state-of-th-art educational resources coupled with our expertise and passion for teaching. Our courses are linked to internationally accredited programmes (such as Cambridge English) and each one has been developed especially for you.

The content is rich, fun and reflects real-life use of English.  Learning is communicative and engaging, promoting English through the arts, music and drama.

Learn in Nature (for kids)

As advocated by the Montessori approach, we are also big believers in the benefits of learning outdoors as it helps promote cognitive, physical, and emotional development in kids.  All our Young Learner classes have been designed with syllabi which incorporate outdoor learning linked to the themes and topics for every group.

Our wonderful garden and creativity will form the basis of outdoor learning through drama, art, music, competitions and much more.

We believe that every child has a high potential to thrive in nature and we see it as our duty to make sure they experience this advantage early on in life.

“Testimonials”

Melvin Wong KL, Malaysia

Having Iman as our trainer was one of the most memorable things I got out of the whole FSTEP (Financial Services Scholarship Programme) experience! Her classes were very interactive and constantly able to gauge our interests in the subject. I enjoyed the class activities that we had and I have definitely learnt more from you than I realised back then! Thank you for always being such a passionate teacher, always willing to help us.

Hanan Omar Cairo, Egypt

Iman is a wonderful teacher. Empowered by her tools, she creates an interactive and cooperative atmosphere among the students in the lesson. She has enough wisdom and creativity to solve problems, facilitate explanations, take care of the humanities with the educational aspects to create a harmonious environment for her students. She is more than excellent!

Samantha Kerr Zimbabwe

Iman is truly a top-class tutor. From the word go, her classes were seamless, fun, engaging, and of course, demonstrative of a vast array of activities. Throughout the course, Iman was incredibly supportive and honest. She fully equipped us for the demands of the course whilst nurturing our independence and self-confidence. Her valuable feedback and high standards motivated us to always do our best and challenge ourselves to continually improve. We couldn’t have been in better hands.

Leon Ma Taipei,Taiwan

Iman is a good teacher with rich teaching skills and enthusiasm. Classes are always intersting and I looking forward to them. I was very satisfied with the content used in lessons and happy with the rapid progress.

Ridwaan – Success English student

I have had a very good experience on this  website project so far. I have made new friends while doing the project and I feel happy to work with people that live in other parts of Mauritius who I would not have met before.. I am also learning new things such as how to make a website. This is something new for me. I have never done this before. All in all, I am really grateful that I got to work with my group, doing this Lockdown Learning MU project and I can’t wait for the website to be up and running.

Simon Thomas – Success English student

I have been doing this course for a few months.  I enjoyed the teaching methods.  I learnt how to be more confident while speaking in public.  It was hard for me to overcome my fear of speaking in front of a crowd.  I would like to invite my friends to share this experience.  Thank you, Iman, for all that you do for me.

Nadine – Mauritius

We are so grateful to you for bringing the best out of Brandon. He is really motivated. As you may know he is very shy by nature. We appreciate your selfless effort in giving him the needed advice and education beyond our expectation. We eagerly look forward for the next enrolment for both our children.

Susan Hales – Mauritius

Leon is a typical 10 year old boy...more interested in being the cheeky joker than honing his public speaking skills! Despite this, his term in Super Speakers was a massive hit and he came home with A TON of amazing stuff under his belt....so many important life skills learned.

Mandy Gregson – Mauritius

My (rather shy) daughter did this course last term and really loved it. It really helped to boost her confidence when in front of others. Well done Iman.

Jo Tiverton-Brown – Mauritius

My daughter did this course last term and wow the skills and tools she has gained have been immeasurable, the course really helped her to become more confident in her public speaking skills! Thanks Success English. Amazing course which delivers results. Well done!

Denise Warren Howard Pitot

I have had the pleasure of attending two of Iman Sasso’s workshops and thoroughly enjoyed both, which led me to write this testimonial. Iman has a great way of connecting with her audience. She keeps them enthralled and hanging on her every word. Professional yet captivating would be the two words I would use to describe Iman from Success English. Capable of reaching an audience of business people in the corporate arena while also able to connect with children. She is simply amazing.

Anson Lyaloo

Excellent, engaging and effective sessions, and Iman is Brilliant. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Greet Meulepas

High level education and practice in a relaxed environment! I certainly recommend the workshop with Success English

Sophie Van Den Hove

I participated at a workshop that helps you to feel more confident to speak in public and also how to prepare your speech. It was really helpful and done in a fun way. I highly recommend Success English.
