Why Custom Language Training?
Whether you’re a CET alumnus looking to maintain your language gains from abroad, a total beginner interested in a new language, or a working professional aiming to attain a certain level of proficiency, Custom Language Training is tailored to suit your needs and interests.
Custom One-on-One Learning
This is the epitome of tailored language learning. With one-on-one sessions, the pace, content, and even how you learn is up to you. Choose to have homework assignments or opt for local TV and music to be integrated into your sessions. Focus on a specific realm of vocabulary like business or politics. Or simply get started learning a new language or refresh dormant skills from previous years. Whatever your goal might be, we’re here to help you achieve it.
Get the top-tier quality of CET language instruction from the comfort of your home. Our teachers are passionate, invested in your progress, and experienced in effective virtual instruction. And because each of them comes from a study abroad background, you get an unparalleled level of expertise in your one-on-one sessions.

Class in Session
*Please note that instructors work in different time zones across the world.
Your language training hours are live, online, and on your terms. Work with your instructor to design a 10-week training program that works for you—commit to the same number of weekly hours, front-load your sessions, or even schedule around busy weeks in your calendar. Once your schedule is set, you and your instructor meet regularly to get after your language goals.
Open to language learners of all levels—from total beginners to advanced learners with specific goals.
