What to expect from a lesson

On your first lesson your new teacher will:

  1. Assess your level
  2. Listen carefully to what you want to achieve
  3. Discover your interests and talk a little about themselves
  4. Introduce your chosen language at the level you need
  5. Set you some work to do in your own time.

After the first lesson you can liaise with your teacher for further lessons. Next time he or she will know how to help you progress and gain confidence in the most interesting and effective way.  

A personal language tutor is the best way to gain confidence.

Pay as you go

By far the most flexible method of payment for private language lessons is our pay-as-you-go system. You simply pay the teacher after each lesson. It means the following:

  • Relaxed - no need to commit to a course
  • No initial outlay - you pay for what you have
  • Flexible - your teacher needs 24 hours notice of cancellation, but that's all
  • Simple - you deal directly with your teacher
  • Customer service - we are here 9.00am - 5.00pm every week day for assistance and back up, and will answer emails as soon as possible.

If your lessons are going well and you wish to commit to a course then contact us! You may qualify for a discount. See Our Charges for details.

At home, at work, or in a quiet cafe

Our first intention will be to find you a teacher who can come to your own home to teach. This is not always convenient so there are other options to consider. You could have your lessons:

  1. At home

  2. At work
  3. At the teacher's home
  4. In a local cafe or library
  5. In a public space with quiet zones such as the  South Bank and Barbican Centres.

One of the above may be the solution for you. It is important to establish the best learning environment and location for you and your personal language tutor. Please discuss it with us in the office on 0207 1010 750 or learn@talklanguages.com. We are very happy to help.
