After a ton of research about different language schools in India and a year of private lessons at Zabaan, I can easily say that this is among the best in the country, if not the top option. Everything is high quality, from their teachers and teaching methods all the way down to their scheduling system and customer service...even their purified air. With more than 20 years of experience studying almost a dozen foreign languages, I have found Zabaan to be the most effective and enjoyable. They catered their lessons specifically to my needs and focused on improving my skills where there was room for improvement. I would recommend this institute to anyone interested in studying foreign languages in Delhi.

I have been learning German at Zabaan. The teacher, Silvio, is very understanding and patient. He takes us through the complicated terrain of German grammar step-by-step, allowing one to be at ease with the language. For somebody who has had practically no exposure to German language, the approach is very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and yet very professional. Silvio is a very knowledgeable teacher, who is able to give individual attention to the student and does not hesitate to explain the roots of certain words. He takes special care to ensure that one gets all the pronunciations right.

Number of Classes Taught


Zabaan not only has well equipped classrooms with air-conditioning to keep your head cool while in class, it also offers places to relax or study on your own and the possibility to share a home-cooked lunch with your classmates.
