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!
Why choose us? Here's a few more reasons why...
Ottavia is great and I think we will work well together. We have already arranged our next two lessons, which I am really looking forward to. Thank you for connecting usSue, WC2, Italian
The lesson went fine; Tanja was on time and fully prepared to teach a genuine beginner. She is gentle and calm, never tired of repeating things. I felt comfortable to ask questions and, most importantly, she promised to tailor the sessions to my needs, introducing me to the terminology of my work. I can already introduce myself, count to ten and do some basic reading so I’m very much looking forward to my next lesson.Katarina, Putney, German
I like Gloria's approach to how to convey the logic of the language and found her personality very warm and motivating. Thank you for the introduction. I am looking forward to learning Spanish with her help!Antonia, South Kensington, Spanish
