We focus only on providing one service – spoken English practice to non- native English speakers who want to go from an elementary level to an advanced level. We do not offer language exchange programs. We don’t teach Arabic/Chinese. We do not offer online English speaking courses for absolute beginners. We do not sell spoken English audio books. We are not the traditional English speaking course on the internet. Our focus is specifically on helping non-native speakers who speak some English to get very fluent.
We have a diverse group of trainers from around the globe who are passionate about helping non native speakers improve Spoken English.
We are small, nimble and incredibly passionate about what we do. We keep our costs down so that we can keep our programs as affordable as possible. We don’t run multi-million dollar TV ad campaigns, nor do we throw fancy casino cruise parties. (The latter, we might, if we can find someone to pay) But what we lack in size and deep pockets, we make up with an abundance of passion, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.
We established KMSE just for one reason -To help non-native English speakers be more fluent in English.
We believe anyone in the world can be fluent in English as they want to be. Our vision is to create the opportunities they need to do so, harnessing the full power of technology.

Would you like to know why my students call me “Super Teacher”!
I lived in London, United Kingdom, New York, United States of America, Paris, France and traveled all around the globe as part of my various assignments with global leaders, well-known cosmopolitans and oil rich royal families.
My living experience from native English speaking countries and everyday contacts with world’s famous organizations, auction houses, private individuals, and government bodies left me confident in English and I’ve acquired skills in teaching business English from London, UK.
There are five principles to my teaching and I know how my students change over time. Right from the beginning of all training, I apply Positive Reinforcement policy and provide Clear Goals and Instructions. I used to Introduce Surprise in every class, Variety and Competition to my lessons slowly, so as not to overwhelm my students. I make one or two small changes in every lesson, and pretty soon my students will call me “Super Teacher”!
As a teacher, I focus on my student’s successful attempts to use English. At first, I reward ANY success however small. If students speak out loudly and clearly, but make a mistake, I praise them just for speaking out or for pronouncing it well. As students improve, I know I can focus on the most outstanding successes. Whatever I encourage, students will continue to do. On the other hand, if I do not encourage them, they will likely become passive in class.
Clear Goals and Instructions
I understand that students need to know exactly HOW an activity is done; otherwise they will be out of control when the activity starts. I write the instructions on the blackboard or overhead projector. Or, model the activity with one of our best students so everyone can see what they need to do.
Students also want to know WHY an activity is being done. Dictations are done to train the ear, so they will be more successful in learning in the future. Pair practice is a simulation of real-life conversation, so they should not show their questions to their partner. Without understanding why, many students think an activity is not important and give up or practice half-heartedly.
he Element of Surprise
Students usually know exactly what will happen in class and answer questions mechanically. By adding surprises to my lessons, students will be forced to think about meaning and will pay more careful attention. For example, I could ask students ordinary questions such as whether they like Pizza, or if they like chocolate. Then ask them if they like chocolate pizza. I might ask students about their families, then ask if they are married, or if they can drive a car. Students who are answering without thinking will say, “yes” automatically. In such cases, their classmates will usually laugh at their mistake, and they will realize the importance of paying attention.
Variety is the Spice of Life
Very often when teachers find a good technique, they use it more and more and come to depend on it. After some time, students become bored doing the same things, and this wonderful technique no longer looks very good. In reality the technique is still good, but variety is required to keep students’ attention.
I organize various activities according to how communicative my students are. I Start with a simple, mechanical activity, then continue with something more meaningful, and finish with a communicative activity. When students do a variety of activities, classes are not dull for either students or trainer!
Competition automatically grabs students’ attention. I divide the class into two teams to have friendly competition and play some kind of game. I always get the left side of the room against the right side, boys against girls, or each row against all the others. I arrange competition on an individual level as well, by giving points to students for their work. We make sure that all students have a chance to succeed at getting some points so that nobody feels bad. I enjoy seeing their progress over time.
