Private Classes

While our popular language classes are ideal for those who can commit to a regular programme of learning, we also offer private classes in the workplace or in the Institute, tailored to meet individual learner’s specific needs.


We currently only offer private classes online. We will resume to offer the classes at the workplace or in the institute when allowed by government health and safety guidance.

Is the Private Class Right for Me?

Private classes are suitable to time pressed individuals, business people or even to whole families moving abroad. Our teachers can deliver intensive one-to-one or small group language courses. We also offer support classes to school students by special arrangement.

Across the Sector

  • Scottish Government
