Start your Dragons Teaching Journey

Dragons teachers bring their passion from the classroom to the computer with our online home language tuition.

Dragons Teaching provides experienced and engaging online* teachers and reward-based games to make learning a language online an exciting experience.

We teach Spanish, Mandarin, French and Mandarin both at primary and secondary level. We cater for students who are complete beginners and who may have studied a language to an intermediate or higher level. Dragons Teaching can provide placement tests at the start of the course to better understand the level reached to date.

*For those requiring face to face teaching, it will depend on teacher availability in your area.

Our courses follow a well-defined curriculum, helping you or your child to achieve recognised qualifications. Our flexible approach will help your child learn a language at home. All you need to study with us is a device connected to the internet and the teacher will tailor your learning to your specific goals, whether that be studying for GCSE, learning a language for business, or purely for self-development.

Check out the Independent Schools Examinations Board’s new Global Online Assessment in Languages, which is available as a Level 1 and 2 celebration of learning from October 22. This is available in Spanish, Mandarin and Arabic.

My teacher was knowledgeable and open and he made the experience enjoyable. The teaching style was relaxed but focused.

Z. Fuller

The Summer Spanish was really great and both of my children found it very helpful and stimulating. 

Indy Bhattacharyya Parent

Our teacher is amazing. I have never seen my daughter warm to anyone so quickly. She clearly understands small children and I love that she is using the first few classes to warm up to my daughter and introduce the language slowly. A great idea and approach.

Answers to common questions

Frequently asked questions

What safeguarding measures do you put in place for your teachers?

The wellbeing and safeguarding of your children are the key priorities for all of us at Dragons Teaching. Every Dragons’ teacher will have an up-to-date DBS check (or equivalent police check) on file with us before starting. In addition, and as mandated by the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education (2020)’ documentation, full references and overseas checks are conducted on all of our teachers. You access our full safeguarding policy here.

How will you choose the right teacher for me/my child?

We will use an initial demo assessment session to understand exactly where you/your child are in the language learning journey and then choose the best teacher for you based on this as well as your availability.

How old does my child have to be to study a language with Dragons Teaching?

Our Learn at Home courses are all perfectly suited for students starting in Key Stage 2 (age 7-11) and go right through to GCSE level in all of our languages. For Mandarin Chinese, we are also able to offer a starter course that is suitable for Key Stage 1 students (age 5-7).
