Frequently asked questions

What is the profile of our students?

For language school, our students range from preschoolers (from 3 years old) through high schoolers, college students, adults and corporate professionals who need the support of a language professional tutor to reach their goals.

What type of language training does HP Lingua offer?

We offer training sessions in French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, ESL and Singapore Math.

The session will be individualized to the student’s specific and personal needs and ability level. You can choose based on tutor’s availability or time that suits you better. - Small group (2 or 3 students): If you would like to share the fun with a couple of friends/classmates, a shared private session is what you are looking for. A HP Lingua tutor can come to one of the student's home or choosen location. The sessions are individualized for those students’ specific and personal needs and ability levels. We must approve the students admitted to the small group so that the students are on a similar level. No students will be allowed to join a small group without approval of HP Lingua and other students. - Corporate workshops on cross-cultural or language training.
