About us

 

Language Today was founded in 2012 with the aim of offering a complete, modern and competitive linguistic service.

We offer lessons in many languages: English, Italian, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic.  However we can also provide linguistic services in other languages on request.

Language Today is a welcoming haven away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life, when you step through the door you can relax with a cup of tea (or a coffee), speak to one of the many teachers and meet our other students.  We have a wide selection of modern teaching resources to help you reach your goals – language textbooks, CDs, CD-ROMs, DVDs, newspapers, books, magazines and of course free Wi-Fi access.

 

Our methodology

Every student is different and so our approach is different for every student.  Language lessons and courses are tailor-made to suit the individual needs of our clients.  Language Today offers a high quality service in a comfortable environment where students can really focus on their goals.  Lessons involve grammar and vocabulary activities as these are the foundations on which a language must be built.  However, from the very beginning our lessons also include speaking activities in order to prepare our students for real-life situations as soon as possible.  Furthermore, students are encouraged to read books and watch films or TV programs in the target language.  Teachers also set stimulating homework activities so that the students can reinforce what they learn in class at home.  Frequency is essential when learning a new language and Language Today offers students extra opportunities to increase their contact with the target language to more than once a week.

The first thing to do is to find out your current level of the target language so we ask you to complete a grammar and vocabulary test in order to assess how much you already know.  Then we ask you to come to school so we can meet and have a short interview in the target language.  When we know your current level and why you want to improve your chosen language, we then work together to create the best solution for you with the most suitable teacher.

Language Today organizes tests throughout the course in order to assess how well the students are learning and how well the teachers are teaching.  Tests can be stressful but they are a valuable tool and they allow us to continually improve our services.  At the end of the course all students receive a certificate from Language Today with their final test results.

Good luck!
