About Language Trainers

Language Trainers specialise in one-to-one and small group language training for business people and busy individuals who need language skills for work, travel and family needs.


Head Office

Run by the directors and administrative team in London, Language Trainers coordinate a worldwide (all over the UK and Ireland, and in major cities in the rest of the world) team of qualified, native speaker language teachers. The Head Office is responsible for administration, recruitment, course development and materials, and academic support for the teachers.

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.

Directors

The directors have nearly 35 years of experience in language training and learning and speak many languages between them.
