Bespoke language courses

City short courses bespoke language programmes are designed to meet your needs and objectives. Our courses can be tailor made in terms of length, start date, content, language level, teaching style and specific topics.

Bespoke language options


City short courses work closely with individuals and commercial clients around London to provide high level bespoke tailor-made courses.

By creating a bespoke platform for learning we have produced a learning zone of programmes that can be tailored to meet your requirements. Programmes may last from one week to one year.

Individual learning

We provide one-to-one classes that focus on pronunciation and developing a deeper understanding of your chosen language, looking at grammar, vocabulary and spelling.

These courses are particularly suited to the needs of learners who can not commit to attending regularly scheduled classes or those who are unsure whether these classes will provide the correct level to meet their learning needs.

Our customised courses offer great flexibility in terms of lesson time (e.g. lunch time classes), duration, venue and content. We can organise one-to-one or small group classes.

Corporate courses

If your employees require solid knowledge of a foreign language or need to develop sound terminology for an international business meeting, our corporate course will enable your workforce to learn and start speaking a new language within weeks.

Classes can be taught at City, University of London or on your premises.

Course specific focus

We can plan and design courses with a focus on a specific topic or subject.
