Cactus helps over 15,000 people every year learn more than 30 languages, in 60 countries and 500 destinations worldwide.
• An insight into our methodology
At Cactus, we understand that learning a language is a personal journey and that no one solution fits all. We also understand that the best way to learn is with help from a real native speaker teacher, combined with a range of other inspiring learning options. So we provide thousands of different courses around the world and can create or tailor any program specifically to meet individual needs.
Cactus’ Academic Team selects only highly experienced and qualified teachers to provide training, ensuring teachers are up-to-date with the latest methods and techniques available for teaching languages. In addition, we focus on teaching practical skills that the student will use in real-life situations, as well as immersing the student in the culture of the country where their chosen language is spoken.
It is this teacher-led approach, combined with cultural insight, that is at the heart of our language methodology. We believe that it makes Cactus courses far more effective, interactive and enjoyable than other language learning options on the market.
