Learn French

This is Ian’s original Oxford degree subject in which he has half a lifetime of virtual native fluency and direct teaching experience. He co/re-wrote Oxford Open Learning’s popular IGCSE course in 2009 and is happy to help students from absolute beginner to degree level, including joint honours with other subjects (e.g. Law) and the study of canonical literature or more modern media texts.
Core subject help?

Learn German

Ian has A-Level German, fluent if only slightly rusty from lack of deep regular use and particularly welcomes students in this language which he loves.
Learning the piano?

Learn Spanish

Ian gained an A* in Spanish IGCSE in 2012 after only a few months’ spare-time study, mainly from good quality CD-based courses used in the car while en-route to and from various local clients. He is happy to support fellow students at comparable stages and has colleague contacts for those seeking higher levels.

Other languages

Meanwhile, Ian also put himself through Mandarin Chinese IGCSE in 2011 (after some further dealings with a Chinese TEFL homestay student) - also self-taught from selected materials in barely 6 months’ study and reportedly missed an A-grade by just two marks. As an experienced (mainly European) linguist, he nonetheless knows from recent experiences how it feels to be tongue-tied in a formal oral assessment!
 
He also has a reading knowledge of Italian (principally by way of an adjunct to his musical activities) and has studied some elementary Russian.
 
Latin is also supported occasionally to ISEB 13+ level. English as a foreign language deserves mention here. Ian has worked in EFL in Europe and with homestay students of a wide range of ages, from Europe to the Far East.
