Instructor Details

Kieran Ball

I’m Kieran and I’m a language tutor based in the UK, and I also  create online courses and write books to make language learning accessible to all.

My books and online courses are based on the methodology I developed  for teaching languages, which I've been using in all my classes for many  years. The methodology will get you speaking quickly, without the  struggle normally associated with language learning.

I’ll not bore you with my life story or intricate details of the  history of the methodology; I know you probably just want to start  learning now, so I’ll let you get on with it.

I have created three series of language courses available in French,  Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese. They're called: '3 Minute  Languages', 'Building Structures' and 'Quick Guides'.

3 Minute Languages

The 3 Minute Languages courses are perfect for the complete beginner.  They will get you speaking a language from scratch, assuming you know  absolutely nothing. You will be amazed at how quickly you’re able to put  sentences together. And you will memorise new words and phrases easily  without even trying.
