I first met David Thomas from Progress English Bristol when I started in company classes at Balfour Beatty, it has been incredibly helpful. With David I have increased my confidence in formal speaking and writing at work. I have also done two more courses with Progress English Bristol, Cambridge First B2 with Donna Sellick and PRE-CAE with David Thomas, both very satisfactory. I have found these teachers highly professional, committed and supportive. The classes are very stimulating and dynamic. I highly recommend it.

Progress in English was highly recommended to me by a friend who had recently done the CPE preparation course with David with a successful outcome for her. I have to say that the course is even better than she described and it exceeded all my expectations. David is an exceptional, really committed teacher who will support you throughout the entire course until the very last day before the exam. David will give you lots of different material to practice at home and will make it available online so you can access it everywhere. Honestly, if you live in Bristol and are looking for a CPE Preparation course, this will not let you down! I was not very confident that I would pass, but then I passed with Grade B, and part of it was surely thanks to David.

Progress English helped me to improve my English on all levels. David is an excellent teacher with extensive knowledge and years of experience. His method of teaching was really supportive and tailored to individual needs as well as the whole class. I highly recommend his school and I will continue with any further language support only through him.

Outstanding teaching!! I came to the United Kingdom 4 years ago without any knowledge of English. Now, I am studying a master’s degree at the University of Bristol. If you need to learn English on a course in a warm and personalised environment, I wholeheartedly recommend David Thomas and Progress English.

Amparo Gonzalez

I’m so glad I’d waited for over a year to take the CPE preparation course at Progress English before sitting the exam, if it hadn’t been for David’s guidance I could have never prepared myself so well on my own. He is a brilliant teacher who knows the score inside out and delivers well-designed classes that on top of all the language work build up other useful skills (strategies, focus, assumption awareness). Pleasant class atmosphere, helpful feedback and always the extra mile… Thanks a lot for everything, 10/10!

Jakob Stadler

If you are looking for the best English school Bristol, then Progress English is the one! David is a great teacher who makes lessons so compelling that you want to stay over after sessions. I never had a problem to contact the teacher about my concerns or about homework. Progress English has an amazing platform called Moodle where you can find materials to study and check what the last session covered. I fully recommend to anyone who wants to take English to a higher level or planning to do a course and possible get a certificate in the language.
