Cactus runs 10-week evening language courses in over 20 languages, in London and major cities across the UK. Classes take place for two hours on one evening per week, and are taught in small groups by qualified, experienced and engaging teachers. Courses are ideal as holiday preparation or for longer-term learning, with easy progression through the levels.


The Foreign Languages Operations Executive at Cactus will ensure the operational efficiency of our language courses and maintain a positive relationship between Cactus and our wide range of foreign language teachers.

The Foreign Languages Operations Executive reports directly into the Corporate and Foreign Languages Account Manager (CFLAM) and works closely with the Foreign Languages Customer Service Executive.
