We believe that everyone has the ability to speak multiple languages. Our proven method gives even total beginners the confidence to start speaking straight away.


Learning to communicate in a second language can be life-changing. It opens doors for business, adventure and personal growth. Beyond linguistic skills, our clients have found that we've built their confidence in ways they didn't expect, helping them connect with others and seize opportunities in all areas of their lives.

We speak business sense

If your company is expanding, it's likely that it is looking to find someone with your skills, experience and talent to do your job overseas. We offer an alternative: highly concentrated learning to equip you to work effectively in a second language. We give you the skills to be yourself, wherever you're headed. 

The teaching was excellent – very flexible and focussed on what I needed. It went at a very good speed and was of a good intensity – a very productive five days with friendly and helpful staff….immersion is an excellent way to learn. I have improved a lot in a very short space of time.
— Richard Brown, five day French Course, 2015

Why we're here

Ana Herrera founded Bond Street Languages in London in 1994. 

A qualified teacher fluent in four languages, Ana was unimpressed by the traditional language teaching she had received during her studies. Her own experience had shown her that the only way to really learn a language was to live it. So she set up BSL with a simple aim: to make language learning fast, effective and enjoyable.

Our team is made up of skilled, professionally qualified tutors from around the world. Every member of the team shares a passion for teaching, a fascination with languages and a joy in seeing clients grow.

Within ten days of one-to-one tuition, we’ve seen clients improve from absolute beginners to very competent B2 level. Some of our clients go on to take professional or academic exams just after our courses.

Our approach is straightforward: we provide one-to-one language training in weeks of 8- or 12- hour uninterrupted days. We take our clients outside the classroom to explore the West End of London, developing vocabulary and linguistic skills in the real world.  It’s a concentrated, efficient method that really works. Over the last 20 years, our teaching has enabled hundreds of companies and private individuals to thrive abroad.


Learning in London

We're based in the very heart of London, and we make the most of it! During your sessions, we'll leave the classroom to explore the sights and sounds of London. Here's a small selection of local highlights - see more about our super central location on our blog.
