• Frequently Asked Questions

1. What type of courses do you offer?

English, German, French and Spanish for business (including interviews, presentations, reports, telephoning), languages for leisure and travel, languages for exams (IELTS, CAE, GCSE etc), English for Young Learners (11- 19 years).

2. What will the course content be?

That depends on your needs. Every course is different because it is designed for YOU only, and no two lessons are the same. Sometimes the student provides presentations, product literature or asks for help with skills such as telephoning. The student's level is assessed, and we agree a programme of lessons to practise grammar, functions and pronunciation needing practice.

3. Will I get homework?

Yes, if you want it! You will be given a copy of the lesson materials to use at home or help with homework. You will be directed towards on-line resources that can help your learning.

5. How much does it cost?

As each course is designed is to meet the client's exact needs, this depends entirely on your requirements, number of students and location. As a guide, the price ranges from £30 per hour for young learners to £55 per hour for small groups at your organisation.

6. Are there cheaper teachers?

Yes, but they may not be experienced in school and college teaching or offer structured programmes of study- often they just offer a 'chat'.
