What to Expect in Our Language Classes

  • You will be handled by professional language instructors.

  • Face-to-face classes as well as virtual classes will be available.

  • We use an effective method of language teaching called "Natural Approach". This method focuses more on communication, not grammar rules to memorize. You will eventually learn the grammar as you learn to speak.

  • This includes the correct pronunciation, phonetics and intonation of the learned language.

  • One-on-one instruction (this assures that the student will work on its needs, at their own pace, and their level) 

  • In 6 weeks, you will start talking in your desired language.

  • Monthly meet up meetings with other students will be scheduled to practice what you have learned and to know more about the culture.

Benefits of One-on-One Instruction:

The advantages of one-to-one training don’t stop there though, and other benefits include the following..

1. You can go at your pace.

Because one-to-one training courses are tailored solely to your needs, it’s much easier for the tutor to go at exactly your pace. If you learn in a group there can be less flexibility when it comes to how much time you can dedicate to each topic or grammatical area.

2. You get the optimum chance to speak and practice the language you’re learning.

Because one-to-one training courses are tailored solely to your needs, it’s much easier for the tutor to go at exactly your pace. If you learn in a group there can be less flexibility when it comes to how much time you can dedicate to each topic or grammatical area.

3. You get to dictate any specialist areas that you’d like to cover in your training.

A real benefit of one-to-one training is that you can ask your tutor to include specialist topics or vocabulary in your lessons – something that it would be trickier to do in group lessons. This can be great for people who have a specific hobby or profession that requires them to know technical words or phrases.

4. You can choose the time and location (on site or virtual) that suits you best.

5. You learn more intensively and therefore more quickly.

When you learn ‘one on one’ with a tutor, the learning is always going to be more intensive. For this reason, it’s great for people who want, or need, to learn quickly as you can progress from level to level in a shorter space of time.

6. If you miss a lesson it’s easier to re-arrange it so that you don’t miss out on a week’s    content.

For some people, committing to be in a set time and place every week just isn’t feasible. It could be that they work shifts, or have a job that demands long, unpredictable hours, but in any case is very useful to have a more flexible set-up when it comes to foreign language lessons. As long as enough notice is given, it’s not normally a problem to re-arrange a lesson so that you don’t ‘lose’ a week.

7. You can focus on the skills that you need most help with.

Normally out of the four skills in language learning – speaking, listening, reading and writing – you will find some easier than others. With one-to-one tuition you can spend more time working on those that you find more difficult – something that is not always possible in group classes

8. You can learn more about your tutor and their cultural background.

With one-to-one training, it’s inevitable that you’ll have more of an opportunity to get to know your tutor. For this reason, you’re likely to learn more about the culture of the countries where the foreign language is spoken than in other training scenarios.

9. It’s less intimidating for shy or beginner students.

Generally speaking it has to be said that foreign language classes attract sociable and friendly people, but group-scenarios can nevertheless be daunting for particularly shy, or beginner students. If this is something that you think would impede your learning, one-to-one lessons are much less intimidating than being in a group and having to speak in front of other people.

10. It’s easier to pursue points that you haven’t understood.

Most teachers in a class situation will always encourage students to speak up if a point covered in class hasn’t been fully understood, but in reality students can sometimes feel awkward and embarrassed to say so. For this reason, if you feel that you’re likely to need extra explanations, you might feel more comfortable learning one on one with a tutor
