Language Classes Inverness
If you are looking for language classes in Inverness, our language tutors offer individual tuition and where demand allows, group classes. Individual tuition is ideal for those wanting Fast Track learning – an effective, but more expensive, option if you want to reach a particular goal quickly. Fees from £30 ph depending on your overall stage and requirements.
Small-group classes are available at several levels, especially popular with Beginners. Fees average around £8 ph.
If you have already studied a language, we can help you assess your current level: we use the Common European Framework for Languages, which divides learners into three main Levels, sub-divided into six, as follows -
Basic User – A1beginner; A2 elementary
Independent Speaker – B1 intermediate; B2 upper intermediate
Proficient User – C1 advanced; C2 mastery or proficiency
A1 Beginners: the majority of our students are complete beginners, or “false” beginners – you learned a little or a lot in the past but now you’ve forgotten a little or a lot!
A1 Improvers: this is for students who’ve put in around 45-50 teaching hours – i.e. you’ve completed our first-stage A1 Beginners’ course. After around 90-100 hours’ teaching time, you should be ready to embark on an A2 elemtary course.
B1-C2: we’re always pleased to organise courses for students working at these levels. While less in demand, students attending are usually keen to develop their language skills to a high level. Please enquire.
Fees for group classes vary according to numbers but are likely to be around £8ph (£12 for a class of 1.5 hours) where minimum numbers are reach but more if the class is running with fewer students. Your tutor will give you details.
