1:1 General Spanish in Caracas, Venezuela

“Isabel is just great! She’s more than a Spanish teacher; she has helped me integrate into the community and explained where to shop, what’s to be expected in certain situations, and much more. She knows the areas to go (and not to go), can recommend cultural events, knows so many people and has an extensive range of contacts. I’d highly recommend her to anyone. She’s very perceptive and also empathetic to the unusual situation in which we expats find ourselves here in Venezuela. She has been and continues to be very flexible according to busy schedules. Thank you for enabling her to be my teacher!”

Lloyds Bank International

1:1 Hindi in Mumbai, India

“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.”


Ministry of Defense

“We had an urgent need for professional French language training – not just basic French, but an understanding of French engineering terms. Cactus were able to provide a highly qualified teacher who was not just proficient in French, but also a Chartered Engineer. The one-on-one training was appropriate for our candidate and enabled him to represent us and meet our business needs. The level of commitment and standard of service received from Cactus was very good.”
