The teachers at Zabaan live teaching as a way of life and continuously strive to increase their own knowledge.This contagious passion for learning motivates you tremendously as a student. Many students find themselves reaching levels of proficiency beyond what they ever imagined possible, which is testament not only to the technical abilities of the staff but also to their charismatic personalities.

In addition to a rich language learning experience, you’ll also experience a smooth administrative process at Zabaan. They make it a priority to try to meet everyone’s unique needs, whether you’re studying at the school as an individual or on a large program. In a world ever more geared towards a one-size-fits-all philosophy, this accommodating and personalized approach is refreshing, to say the least.

As an impactful place of language learning and an inspiring community to become part of, I can’t recommend Zabaan highly enough.

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 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.
