We offer all students a free introductory lesson/assessment with their tutor. During the 20 minute session you’ll be able to chat with your tutor about your motivation for learning and your tutor will gauge your current language level and where you want to get to. It’s an opportunity to get to know each other and for you to judge whether they’re the right tutor for you.

The free introduction is offered online either using our own proprietary learning platform or via Skype. Thereafter lessons can be either face-to-face or online depending on your needs.

At The Language Machine we have nearly twenty years of experience teaching students a variety of languages from Arabic to Spanish.

We specialise in private language tuition which is the fastest and most effective way to learn a new language. Private tuition means that the classes can be tailored to your exact needs whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced speaker.

Compared with a typical group class which will have upwards of 10 students and cost up to £25 per lesson, we believe that private tuition offers a cost effective way of learning a language given the intensity of tuition — you’ll learn a lot faster whether you’re learning for travel, business or academic reasons.

Private tuition also has the advantage that you can have lessons at the days and times that suit you to fit in with your schedule. If you are not able to make a lesson one week then no problem, simply reschedule with your tutor for another day, or leave it a week until your next session.

Moreover your tutor can teach you in the comfort of your own home, office or other suitable location such as a local coffee shop or library.
