People we've helped with language learning
RBS, Bishopsgate EC2, Polish
RBS have an office in Warsaw, and wanted 30 of their staff to learn some basic Polish. Talk Languages supplied a qualified, native Polish teacher who taught them in groups of 6 - 10. They learned how to meet and greet their Polish colleagues, plus the beginnings of business and finance based vocabulary. The students like being able to interact with their Polish colleagues. Hanna, a Talk Languages teacher since 2005, was delighted to be teaching her native language to such receptive students.
Watford Football Club
Watford Football Club is owned by an Italian family, so they arranged for a group of executive staff to receive beginner Italian lessons. They wanted a qualified, native Italian teacher with flexibility to travel to Watford regularly during the football season - exciting but demanding for Ottavia, our teacher and with pleasing results on all sides for the company as a whole!
iLuka is an events company in Hampton Wick working towards the Football World Cup in Brazil 2014! They were looking for fast track intensive Brazilian Portuguese lessons for their executives who needed to interact with clients on a high-level basis, plus more social, conversational Portuguese lessons for other key members of their team. Talk Languages were able to supply a qualified, native Brazilian teacher who could deliver both - straight away!

It was great! We've booked him for a weekly lesson. He's got to cope with two very different standards but hopefully we'll even out soon. Many thanks for setting us up with VincenzoCharlotte & Simon, Kingston-on-Thames, Italian
Jane has been a great teacher. She is calm, patient, kind and generous with a good sense of humour. She was always prepared for lessons and always delivered effective teaching. She listened to Wojtek, encouraged him, had faith in him. My whole family loved her, and should we need English tuition in the future, Jane would be our first choicePaulina, Leytonstone, English
Just a quick e mail to say a massive thank you for organizing the tuition at the last minute. I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and learnt so much in just an hour! I have re booked for next week and hope to continue for much longer.Robert, Brentwood, German
