As a busy young professional Happy Languages’ private lessons have been an ideal way for me to learn Italian. I have lessons at my workplace in the evenings which is very convenient, scheduling has also been flexible when I’ve had other plans or been out of the country. My teacher Cecilia is very friendly, making me feel at ease and boosting my confidence from the first lesson. Over the course of the year the lessons have been varied, using different materials to keep things interesting and revisting topics to revise when necessary. I’ve been getting an increasing number of compliments from my partner’s family and friends when visiting them in Italy so it looks like my lessons are working!

I'm one of the Spanish language tutors at Happy Languages. After obtaining my BA in English Studies and MA in Education, I came to London to complete the MA Phonetics programme at UCL which enabled me to specialise in pronunciation and conversation classes. I've been teaching English & Spanish for 3 years now. I have also presented papers on education in international conferences which resulted in publications. I always feed my interests and cultural references into my classes such as learning about traditions and society through language. Look forward to meeting you in class!

Everything from the initial start-up to arranging lessons has been first class and I could not recommend the company highly enough.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Happy Languages. The amount of preparation that Paolo, my tutor, put into my three-week intensive Italian course, to tailor it exactly to my needs, was seriously impressive. From being a complete beginner on day one, my listening, writing and speaking skills developed quickly thanks to the quality of the teaching – and the best thing is that it was all done in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Happy Languages to anyone.
I had four weeks Spanish Intensive course with Happy Languages; the lessons were really interesting and always interactive, my teacher always tried to motivate me using new technology such as laptop, iPad and IPod for video and audio material. Now I feel like I can progress in my career thanks to my Spanish knowledge. Gisela has always been patient with me and her professionalism made my experience unforgettable.

After my intensive Italian course I am now ready to travel to Sicily! I feel much more confident in speaking and writing in Italian. This is thanks to my Italian teacher who always made me comfortable during each activity. I felt part of a community where everyone helped me with my difficulties.
