The Head Office is responsible for administration, recruitment, course development and materials, and academic support for the teachers.
Locally-based to reduce travel time and expense, e.g. a Spanish course in Bristol will be taught by a Spanish teacher living in the Bristol area, an Arabic course in Dubai will be taught by an Arabic teacher living in Dubai.

Teacher Case Studies
Language Taught: Croatian
Years of teaching experience: 20+
Language Trainers: Hello Klara! Thank you for speaking with me today. Before diving into your experience with Language Trainers, could you tell us what languages you teach and why you chose a career in teaching?
Klara: I teach Croatian, and I’ve chosen a career in teaching because, first of all, I like to teach. It is a great opportunity to share my knowledge with other people. It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet new students who enrich my life, as each one of them comes to class with their own story. Also, teaching encourages us to continue studying, and this is crucial for our mental well-being.
Language Trainers: Being a teacher certainly has many perks! How did you prepare to get a job in this field? Tell us about your teaching qualifications and history.
Klara: I graduated in German and English at the University La Sapienza in Rome, Italy (Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia). Plus, I attended language courses abroad in England, Scotland, Ireland, the United States, Canada, Germany and Austria. Regarding my experience, I have taught adult students who attend Croatian language courses or who take private lessons.
Language Trainers: You clearly know your field very well! What attracted you to teach with Language Trainers?
Klara: The possibility to teach students from all over the world. Indeed, Language Trainers is for me a window to the world, and this gives me a great feeling of freedom.
Language Trainers: That’s true! Working globally opens lots of doors. And what is your favourite thing about working with Language Trainers?
Klara: My students. I just love them.
Language Trainers: Is there any particular aspect that makes you love your students even more?
Klara: I love it when they are curious not only about the language but also about Croatian history and culture, so that they may get an overall idea of the country when they finish their lessons.
Language Trainers: That is very rewarding indeed! And what should students expect from you as their teacher?
Klara: Maybe my students should answer this question. However, I’d say professionalism, knowledge, the ability to explain clearly, and above all, always giving my best as a teacher.
Language Trainers: Those are all excellent traits in a teacher. So far, what has been your most memorable teaching experience with Language Trainers?
Klara: To be honest, all my teaching experiences with Language Trainers are memorable, because my students are memorable. They are special and, as you know, special people make every experience unforgettable and memorable. I am really blessed.
Language Trainers: It’s so great to hear that, Klara! Why do you think students should enrol in a language course with Language Trainers?
Klara: Because they can travel around the world without taking a plane, train or ship, sitting comfortably in their room. With Language Trainers, the world is within reach, and every new language is just around the corner.
Language Trainers: Thank you for your answers! Finally, is there any word of advice you would give to anyone just getting started learning a new language?
Klara: Be persistent and never give up!
Client Case Studies
”Language Trainers is very quick to respond to enquiries and keeps you up to date on when you will receive your lessons. This makes them a very easy company to deal with”Learning Korean to get her dream job
Language Trainers: Katie, thanks for speaking with us! Can you tell us the language you chose to study and why you chose to learn with Language Trainers?
Katie: After discovering an internship in South Korea that gave me the opportunity to practise my dream job, I decided to start learning Korean to give me a greater chance at getting the internship. But apart from simply learning the language, I also have a huge love for the culture and, so, I wanted to find a tutor who lives in South Korea to teach me the most up to date cultural information and adaptations of the language. Language Trainers was able to find me a teacher who lived in Seoul and this gave me the opportunity to ask questions, during my lessons, about the country and what it is like living in South Korea. In addition to this, Language Trainers was also able to find me a teacher who suited me and gave me the option to change teachers, if I found the teacher was not right for me. Luckily, my teacher is a perfect fit, with many years of experience in teaching both English and Korean.
Language Trainers: That’s excellent! Most of our students are satisfied with the first teacher we match them with, but there are occasionally exceptions, so it’s great you were so pleased. In general, what is your favourite thing about your Korean course?
Katie: I like that Language Trainers keep in regular contact to ask how your lessons are going and if they can do anything to improve the learning experience. This is quite refreshing because some other learning providers are lacking in their communication.
Language Trainers: What is the most useful thing about learning with Language Trainers?
Katie: Having the ability to contact my teacher or Language Trainers whenever I need help or support remains the most helpful aspect because I know that if I am stuck, either will respond very quickly.
Language Trainers: And do any especially rewarding experiences spring to mind?
Katie: My rate of progression and how quickly I could start having conversations in Korean has been so rewarding. Learning a language is always hard but when you look back and see how far you've come in such a short space of time, you begin to believe that you can go even further. My teacher is so kind and patient and always supports me in my journey.
Language Trainers: Do you believe your language ability has improved? Have you had an opportunity to use your new skills in the real world?
Katie: When I first began learning Korean, I was a complete beginner with no previous experience of the language. Now, I am able to read, write and hold a conversation quite comfortably, which has happened very quickly (within a space of 2 months). I have not had a chance to use my skills in the real world just yet but I am moving to London very shortly and am planning on dining out at a few Korean restaurants to practise my skills and my accent.
Language Trainers: Would you recommend Language Trainers to other learners?
Katie: Definitely. Language Trainers is very quick to respond to enquiries and keeps you up to date on when you will receive your lessons. This makes them a very easy company to deal with.
Language Trainers: Thanks so much for your time and honesty, Katie! Finally, do you have a favourite Korean word, phrase, or expression?
Katie: 잘 먹겠습니다 - it means "I will eat well". It's a polite term to use when dining in a Korean home. It is a way of thanking someone for their efforts and saying that you will eat well because of them. I thought it was a very sweet expression.
