The Language Guys have recently won a prestigious award for their innovative language classes at Third Educate North Awards, delivered in association with the Telegraph media group.
The awards were hosted by founder Rob McLoughlin and brought together leading vice-chancellors, principals from the FE, as well as some of the most talented staff in the North’s higher and further education institutions.
Emma Woollard Managing Director of The Language Guys pitched against other talented finalists from leading Universities across the UK and won the University Entrepreneurs Challenge Award and Grant, for her innovative business idea of foreign language tuition in bars and restaurants, a fantastic achievement for both the business and the University of Chester!
Due to Emma’s success, she has been invited to come back next year and be part of the process in talking further about her business and its progression.
Emma said, “I’m honoured to have been selected to receive the award, The Language Guys is a recent start up and I’m amazed at how fast things are moving. We now offer classes in Chester where we are based and also in Liverpool, we have plans to start in Manchester next year. As someone who has both studied and taught languages, I saw an opportunity to take languages out of the classroom and combine learning with cultural and social elements. We offer courses such as French and Wine, Spanish and Tapas and English classes, and people are really enjoying the social element to their learning.”
