Course Types

Training to fit your style of learning

Cactus Language Training has a wide range of courses designed to suit your specific requirements. Whether your need is business, social or academic, we will be able to organise training for you which focuses on your goals and outlook.

Courses take place in your office, your home or in one of our training rooms at times that suit you.

The different courses are outlined below. They work as stand-alone courses, or can be combined to create more complex, textured language courses. Choose what would best suit your needs, and contact us to discuss how we can fit it into your schedule.

Cactus have provided fantastic service right from the initial stage when looking at the various options for training. A friendly advisor contacted us immediately to discuss exactly what I wanted to achieve, rather than just trying to push me towards a particular pre-defined course. I thoroughly recommend that you talk to Cactus for all of your language needs.
