Private Tuition or Business Courses

One-to-one language training gives you the ultimate flexibility in your language learning. Whether for business or personal reasons, it is ideal for those who have limited time in which to learn the language, need to make progress fast and/or require training in specific subject areas. You decide on the content of your lessons, leaving your fully-qualified, native speaker trainer to focus on your linguistic needs and any problem areas. You will go through everything with your trainer at the beginning of your course to make sure you get the maximum possible out of your training, and the lessons will take place at the pace that's exactly right for you.

Course Specifics


Most lesson times are available for your 2 hours. Whilst it's good to try and stick to the same time every week, you can change lesson times and days with up to 48 hours' notice. Once you've decided on your normal session time and day, and what you want to focus on, we'll select the trainer whose experience and availability best matches your needs.

Getting the Most out of your Course

The secret to getting the most out of your course is to have a set plan of what you want to do and achieve. Ask for homework and set aside time every week to work on your vocabulary, grammar and useful phrases, and make sure you practise writing, reading and speaking on the subjects you enjoy. Even at beginners level there are plenty of things you can do on your own!
