Reasons For Taking A Tailor-Made Course

You may need to take a tailor-made private course in order to concentrate on a specific area of language, eg. medical or law . However the most common reason for taking a tailor-made course is a limited amount of time in which to learn the language: in this case you will progress more effectively attending a course alone, or in a small group with others who share the same objectives and language level as you. Have a look at our General Language Courses to see what you might cover in a typical private course.

Some of the most common reasons we provide individual language training include: moving or investing overseas, travel, working with overseas colleagues, or speaking more fluently with a partner and their in-laws.

If you’re planning to study a foreign language privately there are plenty of options available to make this course perfect for you. Cactus creates a course that will unfold to focus on the specifics of your lifestyle and learning aims. This will take into account the time you have, your level, your learning style and budget. Cactus trainers are highly qualified, experienced teachers of their language . We work with native speaker trainers so that they can also bring cultural and social aspects of the language to the class to ensure a well- rounded and appropriate programme of study. We do our best to match the appropriate trainer to you, and their flexibility means that you can take classes when and where you need, incorporating what you need.

Pre-Course Preparation

Individual training requires an investment of your time and energy, and it's important we get things right the first time. One of the greatest benefits of individual training is that you can shape the subject-based content of the course. It is therefore important to spend some time prior to the course thinking about particular subject areas you'd like to cover. Your Needs Analysis and Level Test are two important documents that will help us to focus more precisely on your needs.
