Private lessons in English

With private lessons, your goals are our goals, and we work together to reach them! You will get your own personal instructor who will create a course highly adapted to your needs and interests.

Start taking private lessons and you will:

learn more in a shorter time

get a 100% personalised course

Private lessons, or 'one-to-one' teaching as it is often called, are a course addressed to your specific needs and challenges, which doesn’t follow a pre-defined learning plan.

Your teacher will create a tailor-made course plan just for you, enabling you to reach your goals in a much easier and faster way, than taking part in group courses or studying completely on your own.

You will create your own learning schedule with your teacher, and the lessons can be scheduled exactly when it suits you.

If you sign up with a friend , who has the same goal and level as yourself, you can share the classes, and learn together for the price of one!

New to private lessons?

If you are new to private lessons, you should register for an assessment lesson first.

That is a short ‘meetup’ with your teacher so you can talk and create a tailored plan for your course. Your teacher will use some of the time to assess you, your background and areas of interest to you and you will talk about your goals for the coming course. Then the teacher will recommend a plan for how to best achieve your goals and you’ll register for the course package best suited to your needs.

Akkurat hva jeg behøver. Fint tilrettelagt. Veldig godt fornøyd med kursholder!


Kurset var innenfor temaer som er relevant for arbeidshverdagen vår.


Fikk oppfrisket engelsken, og jobbet med mer profesjonell språkbruk.


It is a very nice language school that helps individuals to learn the language in the easiest yet the most effective way.
