We also offer short, intensive and fast-track courses if you need to learn in a hurry, as well as one-day workshops and taster language lessons.

Beginner to advanced level courses

We teach most languages at seven different levels and you can start anywhere from beginner to advanced. Our approach to learning is to teach you how to communicate effectively in real-life situations. We select content that is relevant to your needs. If you are a beginner, you will learn how to use the language as opposed to just repeating words and sentences as you would do with an app. We teach you to communicate rather than repeat.
