Learner testimonials

I was inspired to get on and improve my French after years of dithering. Having a native speaker in charge of the class made all the difference between textbook French and the way it is actually spoken in real life.

Oh yes, I thoroughly enjoy the company of the other students, I’ve made friends with them, close friends I hope, and I have enjoyed it.

I attend Peter’s Spanish for Improvers course on a weekly basis and love the class, last year I was in the Beginners class.

Peter and Anya use a variety of learning materials including handouts, videos, podcasts, the internet etc. and activities change frequently so the lessons are interesting, never boring.

Sue , Spanish – June 2016

I was new to German but thanks to Peter’s teaching and encouragement I am now in the improvers class and have made many good friends in the short time. Peter has also helped organize a German class field trip to Berlin to test our new skills out where we will link up with German contemporaries

“My Café Pierre Spanish class has made a huge difference to my passion for learning the language. It really got me interested and focused again and also boosted my confidence. Not only in the language, but also the whole culture. It has encouraged me to travel around Spain more and immerse myself into everyday life and not afraid to just give it a go. A huge part or this is down to Peter”
Lauren, Spanish. 2015 December

Café Pierre Languages in my experience has been a place where people from different backgrounds and experience can come together to help each other discover new languages and ideas under Peter’s guidance.

Learning emerges naturally in a fun relaxed and patient way. This is a lovely and valuable resource for everyone on Teesside

French [Le chemin ]  SKYPE lessons


Pete’s Skype lessons are a brilliant idea!! Excellent value for money and extremely convenient to fit in with my busy lifestyle. I have learnt so much from being a complete beginner to French. My boyfriend is French and is impressed with Pete’s knowledge and the support he has given me. Highly recommended and looking forwards to my next set of sessions…many thanks Pete

An Introduction to Spanish

Spanish for Beginners.

“I have now attended Peter’s Spanish classes for nearly a year, his style is excellent and I feel that I am making good progress. Having just returned from holiday in Ibiza, to be able to communicate with the locals – albeit in my limited way is a huge credit to Peter and his language and teaching skills.”
