portraitEnglish Wanted 
was founded by Cambridge University graduate Alex Went. After many years living in mainland Europe, he has a particular understanding of the needs of non-native English speakers.

‘Finding the perfect expression or turn of phrase is always going to present a challenge,’ he says, ‘but businesses and individuals often spend a fortune on services that claim to be able to improve their English, when, in all honesty, it might be better for them to stick to Grammarly or Google Translate.

‘English Wanted is different. Our specialist service analyses, revises and streamlines clients’ written and spoken English efficiently and with the utmost attention to detail. Where others simply run your text through the car-wash, we lovingly hand-polish every sentence till it glows with professionalism.’
