How we work

LT123 has a core team of project managers and expert ELT consultants. Our consultant list is extensive and includes highly respected names in the EFL industry. It is this level of expertise and excellence that means that we deliver timely, high quality products.

LT123 were responsive, professional, and pragmatic. Russell and his team applied their wealth of expertise and experience in understanding and addressing our client’s context and requirements. They were able to present options, listen to suggestions from the client, and – crucially – use the client’s feedback to refine and improve the options.

In the development phase, our project managers work closely with the client to fully understand the client’s needs, the target market, the English language learning environment, the demographic of the cohort and timelines involved.

Our production process is stringent throughout. You can find an outline of our development processes here [link to pdf]. LT123 are able to offer a complete range of assets including artwork, audio, video and animation.

LT123 offer unparalleled levels of expertise. They work quickly and effectively, delivering results on time and to budget. We now have a test that does exactly what the user needs it to do, while increasing visitor numbers to our test page and website in general.
