Hear it from the students themselves
We don’t like to brag. So we let people do it for us!
Richard BloxamCEO, JLL
We came across Learn&Co thanks to a recommendation from a friend at Hyperion Insurance Group. He was so happy with their corporate language training that we decided to contact them and set up a trial lesson. It’s now been 2 years and we couldn’t be happier with Learn&Co. From the beginning it’s been an absolute pleasure working with Maria and her agency. Her expertise in the industry has been invaluable. She knows how to select the right tutors for our needs and is also herself an excellent teacher.
Christophe MuirHyperion Insurance Group
I work for a large financial corporation and I wanted to increase our business presence in the French speaking countries in North Africa. My tutor has been an absolute professional and thinks outside the box to make my learning as beneficial for my intentions as possible. I started with a very basic knowledge of my GCSE French and am now in a position where I can understand and participate in live conversations. The speed of learning is amazing!
I took a 6-week course with Learn&Co in Spanish for Professional Development, and it was easily one of the best investments of my time. My tutor created personalized lesson plans tailored to specific weaknesses and, at the end of my time with her, I was able to speak faster and more fluently than I could even understand the words coming out of my mouth.
Nick Lopez GreenFCA
I started French lessons to help prepare for my relocation to Paris with work. I hadn't spoken French for over a decade and severely needed someone to challenge me and get me into gear. Learn&Co was the answer! The classes were fun and something I really looked forward to. Learn&Co really helped me prepare for my move and I will continue via distance learning now I've moved!
Andres MunozRestaurant Director, Le Grill, Dorchester
Working weekly with my tutor for over a year was extremely advantageous and beneficial to my French speaking skills. Learning a language as an adult can be a humbling experience and my tutor knew just how to cater to my learning needs. I was very fortunate to have such a great mentor who believed in me even if I doubted myself sometimes. She is also a lot of fun and has a great sense of humour.

Learn&Co is the perfect language agency. Not only do they provide world-class corporate language training to our employees, they are also amazing to work with. We’ve been working with them for a year now and we couldn’t be more satisfied. The services Maria’s agency provides are simply outstanding. The quality of the tutors, the simplicity of the process and the professionalism make the whole experience extremely valuable.
Katie RobertsonSenior Partner, Revcap
I have been tutored with Learn&Co through work for a year and it has been a fantastic experience. The lessons are well structured, and my tutor has an infectious enthusiasm and positivity which makes learning a real joy. I have made real progress in a short space of time, and have the sensation of having improved markedly. She has a real flexibility and she has given me lots of brilliant guidance and recommendations.
Gio TiraAssociate Partner, Revcap
I have been taking classes to improve my French and Spanish with Learn&Co for the past year and I have to say I’m loving it. I’m impressed with the quality and structure of the lessons. A few months after I started taking classes, I held my first meeting with investors completely in French. Travelling to France and Spain for business meetings is now a completely different experience. It’s proven to reap much faster results with our clients and investors.
ELLA KINGAdult Learner
I couldn’t recommend more highly. My lessons this year have been enjoyable, and there is always a depth of material to improve all aspects of your studies. I look forward to my lessons every week and found I have vastly improved to a stage where i can communicate confidently and fluently in French.
SACHA GOLOBDirector of the Centre for Philosophy and Art
I never really enjoyed French at school and just assumed I wasn't very good at it. As an adult returning to French for professional reasons, I've been working with my tutor for six months now, and I have made more progress each week with her than I did in a whole year at school. Most of all it has been great fun.
VICTORIA THOMPSONAdult Learner
I really enjoyed my lessons with Maria. They were fun and interactive even when they had to shift to virtual lessons because of Covid. I feel much more confident in my french grammar and listening abilities. Maria recommended some fab short stories and french video series which have been a tremendous help. Thank you!
GOEFF PEDDIEAdult Learner
Absolutely wonderful. Tough but also insightful; I have worked with Maria over a few years and progressed from a word to A level. She is focussed and hard working and I happily continue to see her every week. I have had face to face and on-line live lessons and both are excellent. If you want a French teacher I fully recommend Maria. I intend to continue with her as long as she’ll have me.
Sophie WatsonAdult Learner
Anne is a fantastic teacher and it’s been a pleasure learning French with her. She is clearly passionate about her teaching and takes the time to ensure you are learning at the correct pace and in a manner that suits your learning style. She is incredibly supportive and patient throughout your learning. Her engaging teaching methods mean that before you know it you will be feeling incredibly confident with your progress and without even realising it you will have learnt far more than you actually thought.
MIKE TURNERAdult Learner
Suzie has been an amazing teacher. Thanks to her endless patience and flexibility, not least of course, her sense of humour, which she has required at times in teaching me Mandarin! Learning a language during lockdown has been made all the more easy by her skill with the IT, her huge experiences as a teacher but also her positivity. I look forward to continuing my ‘voyage of Mandarin discovery’ with her”.
STEVE GARNIERAdult Learner
It took a few teachers before I met Claudia in order to feel confident that I could indeed learn Spanish in a fun and methodical way taught by someone who is passionate… Apart from her ability to understand the native languages of her students she has the unique skill set to analyse the true need and easiest way for someone to absorb the matter, whether it is vocabulary or grammar, she will tailor it to a framework that will work for you… I always look forward to the next classes with her.
AMY GEEAdult Learner
Rosie taught me German for three years. She is kind, encouraging, and allowed me to progress at my own pace without pressure. Her lessons were always fun as well as practical, and her approach made me feel less nervous and self-conscious than I had before when learning a language. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone, especially if you've struggled with learning a language before!
Giacinta McNaught-DavisA Level Student | Queen's College
I strongly recommend Learn&Co! Not only did I finish with an A* in Spanish A level but also a great friend. My tutor is a passionate teacher who dedicates herself fully to improving her students' linguistic ability. She is extremely capable of guiding any student in the right direction (in person or on Zoom) by understanding what needs working on and providing the right sources to improve each and every issue.
Adam SampsonParent of GCSE Student | Harrow School
Our tutor coached my son for his French GCSE. She met him not long before the exam at a time when his school was predicting that he was unlikely to gain a good grade and he had convinced himself that he was simply no good at French. Within a few sessions, she had motivated him to learn and convinced him that he could succeed. When the results came through, not only had he got a solid A in his exam but he had decided that he would now study French at A level, which he is now doing.
Fergal ByrneParent of A Level Students | Lycée International
Learn&co has superb, dedicated and gifted tutors with a meticulous approach to exam preparation. I cannot praise them highly enough. The tutor we picked worked with my sons in the month’s coming up to their French A levels – and worked miracles. She has a wonderful easygoing manner and managed to engage my sons in her lessons and exercises. Thanks so much for all your help.
SUSANNE STEVENSParent of CE Student | Eton
I was immediately drawn to Learn&Co’s professional website and once I spoke to Maria I knew that Learn&Co would be the perfect agency for my son who is preparing for Common Entrance having never studied French before! The warm disposition of his tutor meant that they clicked straight away and her teaching style has meant that my son has progressed very quickly whilst enjoying the lessons. My son has gone from being a complete novice in French to a confident student who is well on his way to being ready for CE. Learn&Co is wonderful and is working wonders with my son.
