Foreign Language Lessons

At Lancaster Languages, we specialise in bespoke language tuition in German, Norwegian and French, in lessons of 1–2 hours for small groups or individuals. We also offer other languages by arrangement. Contact Us for more details.

We aim to make the lessons enjoyable and practical so that students become more confident and competent users of the language, whilst also gaining deeper cross-cultural understanding. The great advantage of small-group or one-to-one teaching is that every lesson will be planned and delivered according to the students’ individual needs, in terms of level, pace and content. Students simply tell us what their objectives are, and we will help them attain them, by devising a programme of lessons specifically for them.

To ensure optimal learning outcomes, it is essential that all members of a group are from the same company or organisation, and have shared goals and approximately the same language level.

Level and Content

We cater for any level, from complete beginners to advanced students.

Students may just want to develop their language skills generally, or they may have a particular purpose in mind, for example:

  • to do business overseas
  • to work or study abroad
  • to pass an exam

Language Skills

Each programme will include elements of the four key skills:

  • speaking
  • listening
  • reading
  • writing

and simultaneously develop knowledge of:

  • grammar
  • vocabulary
  • pragmatics (e.g. using appropriate levels of formality, according to the situation)


Language instruction takes place either at our Lancaster base, or at a location convenient to the clients, such as their workplace or home.


Prices are from £40/hour but vary depending on numbers and precise requirements.

Other Activities

  • Come to the venue
  • Buy a coffee or a glass of wine
  • Join a table with the country flag of the language you wish to speak
  • Meet new people, practise and improve your language skills
