learn with language melody
Devrim has taught my children for several years. I highly recommend her! She is always warm and smiling, and she makes learning really fun. My two girls very much look forward to her weekly visit! She is completely reliable and is always well prepared. The girls have both progressed incredibly well and are excelling in their French studies at school. Most importantly, Devrim has managed to develop in them a love of the French language, and she has given them the confidence to speak it. Bravo!

Who We Are

We are a fast growing professional language agency specialising in providing quality French tuition. We believe that learning a foreign language can be a very joyful and rewarding process of self-development. We offer individual classes for children, students and adults as well as sessions for groups and professionals. Due to increasing demand for Spanish lessons, we are delighted to have launched our Spanish Department last year. We are able to provide Spanish lessons for both children and adults.
The classes in English, German and Italian can be arranged at request.

Our approach

We are passionate about languages and we want to share this with you! Over the years we have developed a specific approach to language teaching.
Our classes differ from other courses by being enjoyable, pleasant, practice-based and interactive. We prioritise situation-oriented language usage over the theories and stiff and rigid grammar rules. Our experience shows that the best results are achieved when someone truly enjoys the lessons and develops an intrinsic motivation to learn the language.
This is why Language Melody is committed to ensuring a comfortable and pleasant learning environment where you can feel the joy of speaking a new language without feeling stressed or self-conscious.
