Learn a language online or in the classroom – you choose
At The Marlow Language Centre we provide tuition and courses in English and foreign languages for adults and children – for private individuals and for business and corporate clients. Based in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, we can offer face-to-face, classroom-based lessons for students living or staying in the area, or live online courses via Zoom for you in your home or workplace wherever you are.
Our translation department operates worldwide and offers you a translating and interpreting service between English and virtually any language you’re likely to need.
Paola is very patient and pitches the course at the correct level, especially by studying various topics a number of times in different ways before moving to a new topic.
Paola is an excellent teacher - she brings incite into the language tempered with humour. The class dynamic is good and as I joined midway through was made to feel welcome by all.
The admin team are very efficient and helpful.
I have made good progress and feel it is stimulating my advancing years!!!
The current online scenario works but misses the classroom dynamic a little - needs must
Paola is a fantastic teacher and we are only a small group of 3 all at different levels which makes it more challanging for the teacher. Paola always manages to get everyone involved and progress and is frquently going over already learned which helps to remeber. We have progressed very nicely with grammar and speaking and it is a lovely event on a Wednesday night.
Although 1:1 is good in many ways I enjoyed the classes when there was 1 or 2 other members . I prefer face to face tuition than online where possible. The course books we are using are very good.
All very good.
I am very happy with the way Andreia is working with me. It is turning out to be a mix of private sessions to accelerate my learning and now group sessions because I am virtually caught up. Because I am travelling quite a bit we will maintain momentum with online sessions. It is such a relief to have the flexibility from Andreia and the school such that I can continue to focus my efforts. Needless to say it is not easy but I am determined to press on until I can have some kind of basic skill.
Andreia as a person is delightful, very easy to talk to and relax with. She is excellent at tuning into what is needed by me to progress and also, most importantly, pacing me, so that I am not overwhelmed.
My thanks to one and all.
We have nothing but positive words for Zsofia and the way she teaches our children. The material is very varied and she manages to keep them engaged throughout the session. The children see it as fun…while learning a great deal. Merci Zsofia.
Paola is a kind & engaging teacher, who makes the sessions fun. I would like a little less concentration on the text books and a bit more free conversation - even if that’s on a prepared topic. Overall the lessons are really good & a lot less nerve wracking than some I’ve done previously. I can’t really comment on online classes as I’ve never done them .
All our one-to-one and group language courses are now available in the form of live online classes. If you’ve always wanted to learn a language but felt like you’ve never had the time, now is the time. There are no excuses.
We’re offering a free initial consultation enabling you to meet the teacher, familiarise yourself with the online platform, and get a feel for what language learning is all about. There’s no obligation to book a course once you’ve taken your free consultation. It’s easy to book. Just tell us which language you want to try, and state your preferred day and time, and we’ll schedule the consultation with a member of our teaching team.
Small, carefully chosen groups. You can benefit from the cost savings of group tuition without the problems that can arise from mixed-ability groups because we will not place you in a group with people whose ability is way above or below your own.
We are specialists. We are all language enthusiasts. Most of the people in our team originate from countries outside the UK or have lived extensively in other countries. Languages are all we do. We’re not a generalist teaching organisation.
Unique teaching team
A varied team of teachers. Our teachers are qualified in both linguistics and teaching. And we don’t just have one teacher for each language. For most languages we employ a number of teachers and, where possible, we have two or more teachers running a course so that you benefit from a variety of teaching styles.
Charming, convenient location
Charming and convenient location. Marlow is a beautiful, semi-rural setting not far from London. And we offer you free on-site parking.
Free initial consultation
We care about you. We’re happy to offer a free consultation where a language consultant can recommend the appropriate course for you, based on your learning history, discuss your objectives and goals and answer any questions you may have.
Find exactly what you need. We can start you off with a no-obligation initial 60-minute assessment – a single chargeable lesson so that you can meet your teacher, ask questions and see what you think of us. We’ll assess your level of ability and help you define your learning goals so that we can recommend a language programme that will work for you.
No enrolment fee
We don’t charge you an enrolment fee. You pay only for the lessons you book.
