Deciding to learn a new language can be extremely intimidating to begin with. My experience with The Language Guru has been the most positive in every sense of the word. Not only are they extremely accommodating but truly make an enormous effort to ensure you are getting the right support geared to your own personal needs and experience level while learning.
The Language Guru ensures our reading group is challenging and fun, choosing the right level of text and steering students through the discussions with energy, enthusiasm and skill. Thank you!
My experience with French classes at The Language Guru has been very positive over more than three years. Carole makes the classes interesting and fun and everyone attending the class has an opportunity to participate.
I recommend The Language Guru to anyone who wants to learn a foreign language from the ground up or who simply wants to practise a foreign language, and learn more, in a structured, yet relaxed, environment.
I have been a student of The Language Guru for a few years. As well as improving French skills in a really friendly and relaxed environment, I find the classes offer an hour of learning French in a forum which is stimulating as well as great fun.
I always enjoy my French tutorials and the accompanying carefully prepared hand-outs which cover a range of subjects, events, grammar and of course most importantly, the French way of life and thinking.
I am absolutely loving my French language course. My tutor is wonderful and my class mates are lovely! After not liking French very much at school, it's a nice surprise to learn it as an adult and really enjoy it. I am really looking forward to continuing to Beginners 3 and beyond.
Excellent and well-prepared teachers. I started Spanish as a complete beginner and have been surprised at how well I have progressed in a short period of time. My private classes are tailor made for me. All in all a very positive learning experience.

I have been attending French classes for almost a year. Initially it was to brush up on my schoolgirl French, but mostly to impress my New Zealand friend on our visit to Paris! The classes at The Language Guru are so enjoyable that I have continued. The teaching is well planned, informative and fun. The teacher is warm, friendly and makes everyone feel at ease.
These are just the best French lessons I've had. Each session is planned as a stand-alone lesson, factoring in what each person needs and we learn in an interesting way about France and French culture along the way. The lessons are so interesting and the tutor is great - happily picking up queries and questions and great at explaining things clearly. It’s learning French with bells on!
My lessons really helped my French on so many levels. Fun lessons which are set at my level tailored to help me improve while enjoying a good conversation. I never particularly enjoyed grammar at school and they made it relevant and comprehensible with a light touch!
You only learn things when they are fun and interesting. Learning French with The Language Guru is both of those things and as a result I am now at my ease in conversation with my French neighbours. I strongly recommend TLG both for their excellent teaching skills and because you can laugh while you learn!
I’ve been learning French with The Language Guru for two years, and my daughter is also privately tutored for her GCSE French.
The Language Guru makes learning a language fun and enjoyable. Our tutor explains everything clearly and always makes it interesting. She has the patience of a saint and is really enthusiastic.
I’ve been to numerous French lessons and The Language Guru is the best by far, I cannot recommend them more highly.
I have been learning French with The Language Guru over Skype for about 18 months. In that time, my confidence in French has come on leaps and bounds. My tutor has gently introduced further grammatical complexity and a lot of conversational vocabulary to our lessons, which are casual yet well-structured.
I'm a long way from being fluent but being able to refresh and improve on my school French - gradually getting to grips with things - has been a great help. And, of course, having these lessons over Skype means they are ideal for someone who might be 'très occupé'!
