We offer inspiring and interactive language lessons at a convenient time, tailored to your own specific goals, with enthusiastic support and motivation from your own native-speaking personal tutor.
You can opt for virtual classes, face-to-face sessions with our tutor coming to you, telephone tutorials or fully immersive training. We recognise that language training is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and that no single style of learning will appeal to all learners.
With Babel’s personal tutors, we can quickly adapt your programme to suit your style of learning. Our tutors love what they do and have been teaching for years. They are passionate about sharing their knowledge and expertise, and with their motivation you are much more likely to stick to a language programme than working alone with self-study materials.
You will be assessed at the beginning and end of your agreed module of hours in line with The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) which is an international standard for describing language ability. In between, you will receive feedback and guidance from your language tutor after each lesson.
We are also able to customise the training content to your exact needs by creating Specialist Terminology workshops relevant to your organisation and industry. Our language tutors will devise the content and offer workshop sessions exclusively to you allowing you to meet your training objectives and use real-life scenarios.

"I have been having very intensive French lessons over the last 5 weeks in preparation for my expat move. Our tutor did a fantastic job of developing a lesson plan, prepping me for the essentials and covering the basics, giving me a strong French foundation on which I can build over the coming years. She was very flexible with lesson times, working around my schedule and always brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm, no matter how early in the morning or late in the evening it was!"

"Please thank both our trainers for their professionalism, the group had nothing but wonderful things to say about the delivery of the training."

"I have been having regular lessons for a couple of weeks now and the lessons are going really well. I need to study some more on my own is the only thing! But the lessons are really good - fast paced and challenging (in a good way). The tutor is really supportive so it's good and I feel like I am learning a lot!"
