Our one-on-one Chichewa lessons are specially crafted to meet your specific needs and linguistic goals. Whether you’re here for a short stay or a longer visit, our experienced Chichewa teachers will help you achieve your linguistic goals.

Depending on your goals, our personalized Chichewa lessons can help you:​

  • Learn to speak confidently with salespersons, hotel staff and other locals

  • Handle everyday situations, such as buying groceries or medicine at the pharmacy

  • Improve your ability to understand spoken Chichewa

  • See Malawi through the eyes of a local

  • Practice routine situations outside the classroom with your teacher

These private lessons take place entirely at your convenience. We’ll come to your hotel or short-term housing or you can come to one of our classrooms.

You can even make the city of Lilongwe your classroom! Walking around the city while learning Chichewa and discovering the Malawian way of life is an engaging approach to improving your language skills. You will see your level of vocabulary, understanding, speaking, and accuracy reach new heights. Through various activities, you will learn about the different and distinctive neighborhoods of Malawi, meet locals, and absorb unique Malawian history.​

In addition, if you choose, you may mix a formal classroom lesson with an informal session out and about in Lilongwe.  These lessons can take place at the location of your choosing: at a cozy café, while shopping at one of Malawi’s famed markets.  After all, if you’re going to take Chichewa lessons in Malawi, what better way to learn than in real-life settings?

If you are preparing for your trip and wish to brush up your Chichewa before you arrive, why not check out our Virtual Classroom lessons and meet and work with your teacher online before you arrive.

Our small private group classes are perfect for families, couples, and friends looking to enhance their time in Malawi by improving their Chichewa in an intimate setting. ​ We will help your group explore Malawi’s culture, history, geography and cuisine all while learning to speak the language of the warm heart.​ If your intended group has differing levels of Chichewa , have no worries. We are experienced in handling the varied needs of everyone in the group whatever their backgrounds.​

Our micro-group intensive Chichewa classes focus on the development of oral skills in social and practical environments. They are designed for people who want to improve their understanding and speaking abilities through interactive experiences.

During class, you will rapidly improve your communication skills in a variety of everyday situations. You will work on grammar and vocabulary on a given theme, as well as polish your pronunciation while doing real-life exercises. We use innovative education materials, including videos and e-learning, to maximize your exposure to the language and help you progress efficiently and rapidly.

Class size is limited to a maximum of 6 students. You can create a small group class with family members or friends, or we can put one together for you. Again, differing levels of Chichewa in the group is not a problem. We are skilled at handling the varied linguistic needs of each individual in the group while making the class a beneficial experience for all.

Helpstars staff is fluent in English and offers concierge services as needed. We can help you with tasks such as, short translation of Chichewa texts, printing tickets, making reservations and more. Just contact us to discuss these services!
