Frequently Asked Questions

How much do your English courses cost?

Our English courses and lessons are completely free.

Why are Woodward English courses free?

I truly want to help as many people as possible to learn English for free.
In many countries, learning a language can be prohibitively expensive or sometimes just not available at all. There are many people that would like to improve their current circumstances though due to financial restraints, they cannot.
I have seen parents who would like to give their children a better future though cannot pay for English lessons at a language school or with private teachers. I have seen young adults with a lot of potential that don’t have the time to take English lessons on top of what they are already studying.

That is where I would like to help and why I have created these free English courses. They can be used alone as a self study tool or alongside another course you may be doing. Teachers can also benefit by having their students complete parts of these courses at home and then using the language in the classroom (thinking of flipped classrooms here).

However you use our courses, I hope you benefit from what we have created.

How is Woodward English financed?

We have advertisements on the website that give us a very small amount of income (please don’t use your ad-blockers with our website). Some teachers and parents purchase our Printable Language Resources in PDF form which helps us a lot.  Some students are members of the paid section of Woodward English on YouTube which also helps. At the moment these cover the costs of hosting though there are other expenses that need to be covered like the (expensive) yearly license for Adobe products (I use Abode Illustrator to create the charts and Adobe After Effects for the Videos) and we use dedicated servers due to the number of people (approx. 3-4 million every month) that visit our websites.

If you appreciate our work, please support us my purchasing our resources or becoming members of our YouTube channel.

Why aren't there more lessons?

Woodward English is not a big company with many people. It is just my wife and I doing what we can when we have time.

If there are any teachers that would like to volunteer some time or contribute material to this course, we would really, really appreciate it.

If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact me (Rob) via twitter or Instagram.

I hope you find our English Courses useful.

Remember, if you like them, let others know about Woodward English!

Have an awesome day!
