Face-to-Face Language Training

Cactus’ expertise in the field of face-to-face language training is second-to-none. With many years’ experience in providing individual and group language tuition for both corporate clients and individuals all over the world, we have built our own network of professional, experienced and qualified native-speaker trainers. Our trainers teach over twenty different languages and along side our strong in-house academic team they work together to deliver bespoke courses that are created and tailored to the individual needs and goals of  the client. Each client is different and has a specific set of requirements. Cactus excels at assessing those requirements and then developing a course that successfully delivers measurable learning goals and outcomes.


What are the benefits of a private face-to-face course?

  • Private courses are highly targeted, meaning that your course will be geared to you as an individual or group: you tell us your requirements, and we design your course accordingly
  • Your course will take into account the time you have, your level, your learning style and budget, so that you progress quickly and focus only on the things you need
  • Private courses offer the utmost flexibility: you choose when, where and how often you learn, making language training easy to fit in with work and life activities
  • Your trainer will be matched to you and your industry
  • You can take lessons in one format, or combine different formats to create a more complex, textured language course.

Reasons for taking a private face-to-face course

  • Limited time in which to learn a language: you will progress more effectively learning alone, or in a small group with others who share the same objectives and language level as you
  • Relocation or investment overseas, for work or personal reasons
  • Communication with colleagues overseas
  • Communication with a foreign partner and in-laws
  • To concentrate on a specific area of language, eg. medicine or law

Training formats

  • 1:1 or 2:1 private training: the most common training format, with maximum impact on your learning curve
  • Small closed group: tailored to the needs and level of your group
  • Skype: Skype language training is often a perfect complement to traditional face-to-face lessons and can be combined with any training format to enhance your experience.

Cactus also runs its own group evening courses in the UK, and private and business full immersion in-country courses with partner schools overseas.

Whichever training format you think might suit you, contact us to discuss the options and we will help work out the best solution for you.


Face-to-face training feedback

“Juan really understood our strengths and weaknesses very early in the process and worked with us to benefit us as much as possible. He was extremely accommodating in class timings since we were running on a very tight schedule. I believe he put in a lot of hours before class to be prepared what to teach and how to teach. He was very analytical in teaching us since he understood that we like to analyse the different nuances and irregularities. This made the course aligned to our way of thinking and made it interesting. In summary, the experience with Cactus and Juan was far more enriching and valuable than what I did last year from with another institute for French.”
