The classes at our Language Nest are for all ages and are built around you. Each of our qualified, experienced tutors will create a fun, immersive teaching schedule based around your level, as well as taking into account what each student would like to gain from their learning overall.
Listed below is a little more information about our language levels - Chick, Post-Chick, Fledgling and High-Flyer - so that you can better decide which class is right for you.
Chick classes are for beginners, ranging from complete newbies and those who know some basic everyday phrases to students who can articulate simple sentences. Classes for Chicks suit students ranging from pre-A1 to those approaching the A2 level.
Ready to be introduced to everyday written and spoken language
Able to articulate basic, everyday words and phrases (e.g. an ability to introduce one’s self and ask and answer questions about personal details)
Can bring together learning to form short, simple sentences that collate familiar names, words and ideas
Comfortable speaking aloud, even if the form of speaking may be slow, considered and calculated
Post-chick classes are those for post-beginners, sitting roughly at the A1-A2 level and above. These classes are suited for those with a decent foundational understanding of a language, even if those foundations were laid many years or decades ago.
