I started at MLS with no knowledge of Italian because I wanted to learn this wonderful sounding language. Now in my third year, and ever gaining in confidence, it was absolutely the right decision. There is a great atmosphere in the school, classes are fun at the same time as being instructive and definitely are not competitive. Vicky is a great teacher and students support and encourage each other. Occasional evening events and weekend film screenings add an extra social dimension. Cannot recommend MLS too highly.

I have been learning French with Nina for nearly 18 months. I look forward to our lessons because they are not only a lot of fun, but also Nina's teaching technique is very effective. It builds very gradually, reinforcing but at times challenging. While I had done French O level (nearly 50 years ago!) I was very rusty. But after a year I went on holiday in France and found I had sufficient confidence to get by in restaurants, shops and with the hosts of the B&Bs. The Language School has good facilities and all are very friendly.

Coming from an Italian family, I have a basic understanding of Italian, however having not really spoken much Italian at home I often find myself struggling. Since joining The Modern Language School I have had a fantastic experience. The sessions are very well organised and varied, with the opportunity to speak and develop on my Italian. The teacher Vicky is extremely knowledgeable and always brings fun to each lesson.

I have been learning Spanish with Lynn for quite a few years now. Lynn make learning fun , and uses a variety of teaching materials and methods to keep classes fresh and interesting. We get valuable guidance on how to continue our studies at home . I have always found I was allowed to move at my own pace according to my own ability. It is really rewarding when you can go to Spain and have conversations with the locals and see how they warm to you. I look forward to my Tuesday afternoon class with the friends I have made .

If you would like to learn a new language, or brush up on one you already know, then the modern language school is hard to beat. I have been a student there since 2011 and learn both French and Spanish. Teaching is engaging and of an excellent standard and fellow students are very welcoming and friendly. It's a great place to be.
