Speak Out Team at Annecy market

 Language Courses

Hello. Bonjour. Hallo. Ciao. Hola.

 

Our mission at Speak Out Languages is to help everyone communicate confidently in a second language. Established in 2012, we’ve helped over a thousand learners develop their foreign language skills. 

 

Why choose a Speak Out course? Our teaching is all about confidence. Generations of students leave school after studying a second language without the ability to speak it for fear of making a mistake. Every Speak Out course is designed to get rid of that fear by focusing on speaking and understanding. 

 

All of our French, German, Spanish and Italian classes are fun, practical and relaxed. Our classes are small because they are tailored to your needs and interests. With our teachers, you will receive plenty of attention and speaking practice that leads to rapid improvement.

​​

Private lessons are available for all levels at £40/hour or a block of 5 - 10 sessions at £35/hour.  Please contact us to arrange a suitable time.

Note from Ruth, Founder

 

Just like you, I have the bug for learning languages. My own trigger was a school exchange trip to Germany when I was fourteen. I realised that being able to speak the language meant you could have more fun! Rather than obsessing over grammar and exams, effective communication made learning more enjoyable. After graduating from the University of Oxford in 1995 with a degree in Modern Languages, I worked across Europe, Australasia, and the Middle East before founding Speak Out. I started my own language course in response to a real need for a different approach to language teaching.

Languages are not maths. There is no right or wrong answer. There is just communication and the confidence to give it a go. Every single Speak Out course is designed with that in mind. All of our teachers are passionate about helping each learner achieve their full potential. Every single class is focused on building confidence to have meaningful conversations.

Thank you for visiting us and we look forward to meeting you soon. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Speak soon!

Ruth.
