Client Testimonials

"Studying at Viva Languages has been an enjoyable experience. They provided a  service that I felt catered for me as an individual, meeting my specific needs and requirements. Communication with Viva Languages was quick and efficient. My Russian tutor, Zara, was both professional and personable. I would definitely recommend Viva Languages to those who are looking to learn a new language or develop an existing one." Rob Bennett

"I have been going to see Zara for around 2 months now on a one-to-one tutorial basis. I find her lessons both friendly and professional simultaneously, she has a lot of enthusiasm for her students’ progress, which makes the learning of a new language all the more easy." - Daniel Collis

"Zara as a teacher was perfect, she made the lessons nice and comfortable. She prepared for the lessons perfectly as well, with thought as to how to teach, she was prepared with excellent paperwork for explaining and teaching Russian. She made me feel comfortable and the pace of the lessons were nice. She prepared the lesson with my details and name in the lessons, so when you learnt something it was relevant." - Nigel

"I was a mature casual learner, wanting to understand the basics of the Russian language for a forthcoming vacation. I approached Zarema in August 2013, who accepted the challenge of tutoring me for 31/2 months. Initially I wondered what I had let myself in for, as I found it a very difficult language to grasp. Zarema's approach was firm but friendly, motivational and most importantly the learning materials were adapted to be relevant to my needs and capability for such a short period of time for learning. Thanks to Zarema, my vacation was a huge success, and I was praised for the effort applied and knowledge of Russian words and phrases that I obtained."
Mr A York.

"I studied Russian at university, but had not used the language since I graduated seven years ago. I regretted not maintaining my language skills, so last year I started having lessons with Zara. I'm really pleased because although I was rusty to begin with, but Zara's friendly and patient approach to teaching has helped me to become confident again. She provides useful and interesting material which covers the aspects of the language that I want to focus on and at the same time, she ensures that the lessons are fun - which means I look forward to them!" - Sophie
