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.
I have thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Paola, who is a patient, kind and personable teacher. She is empathetic and eager to help students' learning. Group lessons are good natured and good fun. Paola has a great sense of humour and as a native Italian enjoys learning from the backgrounds and experiences of her students in turn. I find learning grammar more challenging than expected but think it will provide a more solid base for reading and writing as well as conversing in Italian.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the start of my first term of Pre-Intermediate French. The lessons are fun and Sophie is a great teacher, especially as I am not a natural linguist. The homework is challenging but manageable and the group is very supportive. I really recommend this course and The Marlow Language Centre.
I really enjoy my group lessons with Paola, we all have fun and help each other. With Paola's guidance we
work things out, and from knowing nothing last year, I can now read and understand the written Italian passages we are given. We are speaking a lot more too, and Paola is always encouraging us when we get stuck. She has a lovely personality and is a friend as well a teacher.
Google Classrooms does not work well with my company firewall, so that was difficult. I preferred to use the text book. The venue was fine and Rocio was very good.
Sophie is an asset to your Centre. Her classes are pitched at the correct level for our group, providing practice, revision and learning in a fun, no pressure atmosphere.
A good opportunity to learn about French life, and hear and speak the language.
A few in the class are taking private lessons in addition, to get a grip on what we are doing in class.Which strikes me ,that if that is necessary then the nature of what we do in class and pace needs review to ensure there is a more solid understanding be fore we move on.
Paola is an amazing teacher full of empathy and a great sense of humour The course content is good and the structure works
We all gel as a class which helps the learning process
Paola is a very effective communicator and teacher that seems very strong in her ability to adapt styles to match the student's needs and preferences. Been a pleasure working with her (and very good support from the team in Marlow)
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.
