LANGUAGE COACHING | LATIN, ACADEMIC GERMAN... | COURS DE LANGUE INDIVIDUEL | SPRACHKURSE
Are you struggling with modern languages,
do you need to read academic publications in foreign languages, like German or French,
or are you interested in ancient languages, like Latin...?
Depending on your subject and your own specialism, you will find that you need other foreign languages for your studies and your research. Many humanities subjects are very international and you limit yourself significantly if you only engage with scholarship in your native language. For example, papers in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish are often essential for many more advanced studies regarding, for example, the ancient world. And many archaeological reports are often only published in the local language.
We don't intend to give you an introduction to German or French (or English if required) and we are not going to learn how to order a coffee or pizza in another language.
Our main aim is to help you with academic writing and academic language.
What does this mean? First, reading an academic paper in a foreign language can be challenging, even if you already have a basic knowledge of that language.
You may not have to learn an entire language. It always depends on your needs: for instance, perhaps you only need to consult an excavation report or a coin catalogue in another language: just the basics words are enough to understand the information you require.
But perhaps you also need to write a paper or article in German, French or English and you are struggling to find the right words for an academic publications?
We can do this as a one-to-one session via Skype or as a group session, as a regular session or just the focused help for a particular assignment. We can also meet face-to-face, for example for a block seminar. Contact us to discuss what suits you best and what you want us to cover.
Do you need to know some basics for your research project at university? Are you struggling with grammar or vocabulary? Or you need to understand that special academic, scientific jargon in French or German for your discipline? Are you worried about your Latin exams?
Being fluent in several modern languages as well as Latin (and Greek), we can certainly assist you with a range of languages and whatever your linguistic knowledge is like.
Just let us know what you need. But remember, we are not really offering a translation service as such. The main aim is to improve your skills and show you how to excel in your studies.
SERVICES TAILOURED TO YOUR NEEDS
Do you need an intensive course to use scholarly material only available in another language? Just some help to understand the basics? Or do you need to improve your knowledge of grammar?
Or are you interested in deciphering ancient or medieval inscription in Latin or Greek...?
We can do a personalised one-to-one lesson for you, tailored to your needs, or perhaps a weekly course in a group. Whether face-to-face or via skype, Zoom or Teams, we aim to assist you, especially when dealing with German, French, English and Latin; other languages are possible, too - just ask.
QUESTIONS ? BOOKING ?
The first step is that you contact us and tell us how we can assist you.

Academic Language Group Workshop (e.g. German for English speakers) (pro person)
Do you need to improve your knowledge of language? Are you struggling with a foreign language, like German/French/English, or academic jargon, or are you interested in ancient languages, like Latin?
Do you need to read articles and books (e.g. in German) for your studies at university? You have never done German before? Or you know German, but struggle with the academic writing style?
Why not organise a workshop for several students with similar requirements at your university.
It can be done via video conference/skype or also face-to-face.
The price of £25 is for one hour per person for a group meeting of at least three students. But we can also organise a two-hour, one-day or five-day workshop: please ask for rates. And please email me for dates that suit you most.
If you prefer a one-to-one meeting, better book a one-to-one tutorial.
Other linguistic problems, please enquire: Middle High German? Academic French? Academic English...? Latin? Greek?
We can also organise one-to-one language classes.
Links to language resources and online dictionaries
Remember that you will hardly ever find a one-to-one equivalent for a word in another language. Some online dictionaries can help you to check out the diverse meanings and connotations of words in order to chose the right one for your task.
