Internal Language learning Tips and Advice

Group tuition at The Marlow Language Centre

Five reasons why you should choose our group classes

In addition to our wide variety of bespoke private courses here at the Marlow Language Centre we also operate regular mini-group classes. Some students prefer to take tuition in a group format rather than one-to-one; there are many benefits to both kinds of tuition, and learning with other people presents a different style of language learning to private tuition. Here are our top five reasons why our group classes are so popular:

1. Equal ability classes

Obviously, learning with other people is a huge part of why group tuition is so popular. Being able to share your progress, engage in group speaking activities and help each other with in-lesson tasks is a fantastic motivator to language learning. Here at the MLC we are committed to making sure all our group students are comfortably placed in a group according to their own language ability, whether complete beginner or more advanced; this means there will never be people either too far ahead or too far behind. Everyone will be on the same level.

2. Mini-groups of three to eight students

Unlike many other schools, we use a unique mini-group lesson format. A class size of between 3 and 8 students is the perfect recipe to make sure everyone gets a chance to speak, without feeling that they are being put under any pressure. Most adult education institutions will have classes in excess of 10 people, meaning that some students are often overlooked, may not get personal attention, and may fall behind or not enjoy the language learning process. This is not the case at The Marlow Language Centre!

3. Teachers and a management team who care about you

In a recent feedback survey, over 95% of students said that they would recommend the MLC to their friends, family and colleagues. The reason for this is that we care about our students’ progress, participation and enjoyment in the language learning process. We always do our very best to maintain a friendly and open dialogue between our teachers, students and the management team. This ensures that you will always get the most out of your lessons.

4. Meeting new people

Our group classes allow you to meet a variety of local, like-minded language learners who are as committed to making progress as you are! The camaraderie of a shared class is one of the many boons of learning with others, and meeting new people will also allow you to converse and learn outside the classroom environment through language exchanges and get-togethers.

5. Competitive pricing structure and trial classes

Whilst our bespoke one to one and one to two courses offer a great degree of individual attention and value, group tuition represents highly cost-effective language learning without compromising quality! In addition, our trial class format allows you to try the first lesson for a one-off payment without committing to the rest of the term if you’re not quite sure. There really is no reason not to give it a go! But don’t just take our word for it, here are some testimonials from customers who have recently taken group classes with us:

“Maria-José is an excellent teacher and has a fantastic lesson method. The classes are very enjoyable and exactly what I was looking for” “I would really recommend to anyone looking to learn a new language.” “I really enjoyed my classes at the centre and Hannah was a brilliant teacher. I definitely hope to start up lessons again soon.”
Our group classes run in conjunction with the school terms, meaning our new group classes will be commencing in September.
