Helping Adults to Learn New Languages

  • Connector.

    Do we need to learn another language?

    We are lucky that English is the language the most people speak and want to learn, but does that mean we don’t need to learn another language?

  • Connector.

    Speaking someone else’s native language

    helps us to communicate and make friends, as well as learn about other cultures, creating connections and enhancing personal development and business opportunities.

  • Connector.

    Our qualified, professional and friendly teachers

    will set linguistic targets and aims to help you achieve your goals. The venues are chosen to be comfortable and inviting. The classes are small to assist your learning by allowing the teacher to focus on you as an individual.

Communicate With The World

Speaking someone else’s native language helps us to communicate, as well as creating cultural connections and enhancing business and trade. Our brains are dynamic structures, changing in response to new experiences. Learning a language in later life can delay cognitive decline even more than being bilingual during our youth. A recent Swedish survey finds that our brains actually grow when we learn a language and that speaking it fluently gives us better memories. Learning a new language is hard work, but never impossible. It requires motivation and should be treated as a logic puzzle that is a fun and creative long- term investment as well as a gateway to broadening our horizons.
