French tuition, German tuition, Spanish tuition
'My youngest daughter, Chloe, and her two closest friends have been learning Spanish with blt for the past two years. They love their tutorials and Chloe can't wait to show off her Spanish when we go on holiday to Spain.' (Rachael O'Connor)
'Our two girls have weekly French tutorials to support their classes at school. We have a great tutor who is full of life and enthusiasm; he 'sells' the language to the girls. They both seem hooked!' (Katy White)
'Caroline loves her German tutor. She's fun, full of energy and is always happy and smiling. I speak basic German but mine can no longer compete with hers!' (Angela Lewis)
We provide bespoke French, German and Spanish tutorials for primary school children (4 to 11) of all levels and abilities - from complete beginners through to advanced learners (bilingual). We understand that children learn languages most effectively when they are immersed in the language-learning experience. To this end, our tutorials focus above all on real communication, using a variety of media, activities and games which appeal to the variety of learning styles (visual, kinaesthetic and analytic) to engage and enthuse. All children learn languages at a different pace, and so we follow a tailored curriculum designed to be highly flexible and comprehensive.
Our language tutorials aim to:
Develop speaking skills (fluency, accuracy and pronunciation);
Develop vocabulary range (including phrases and idioms);
Practise reading skills (skimming, scanning, reading for gist and detailed information);
Enhance listening skills (listening for gist and specific information);
Provide practice of written skills (style, accuracy and register);
Review and develop grammatical structures.
We tutor in the comfort of your home, online (via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime), or at the home of one of our specialist tutors, at a time that is most convenient for you.
We currently tutor in person within a 10 mile radius of Bournemouth town centre, including Christchurch, Parkstone, Poole, Southbourne, Westbourne, Boscombe, Moordown, Winton, Charminster, Ferndown, Wimborne, and Branksome.
