  • I never imagined when we started that I would become fluent in English and that I could manage meetings and video conferences in English and follow English language films. It’s fantastic. Many thanks.
  • The Language House adapts the content of the courses to our needs on a weekly basis. One week we work on presentations, another week we work on language for meetings. We can use the English from these lessons immediately in our daily work with our clients.
  • I really appreciated the English courses with The Language House and especially Garry, our teacher who was friendly, serious while also having a sense of humour. I am sure that my English is much better today thanks to lessons with The Language House.
  • The lessons are very full of life, very interesting, and adapted to our need - a group of journalists.
  • Yes, I highly recommend The Language House as an ideal solution for companies that need to improve their English communication skills.

  • I just wanted to let you know that I am starting today at P&G!! My two interviews in English went really well. Thank you so much for your great advice, these interviews were exactly on the same line as yours.
  • My English lessons with The Language House were interesting, fun and lively. I feel much more comfortable speaking English. If I have to socialise in English or moderate a forum in English, I don’t have the panic and stress I had before. I actually look forward to using my English.
