Give the Gift of Language!

We’re delighted to introduce our brand new Gift Card system where you can purchase any of our Coffee Break courses or the Reading Club for a friend or loved one. Until now the Gift Card system was a manual process where we had to create a Gift Certificate for you and send you the link. It’s now fully automated and you can simply choose the language and season you’d like to give, choose the date on which the Gift Card will be sent, and the recipient will receive a code to get 100% off the price of a course.

If you’d like to give the Gift of Language to someone this festive season, you can now buy your Gift Card on the Coffee Break Academy.

Please note that we currently offer Gift Cards for single seasons of Coffee Break French, German, Italian, Spanish and Chinese. We also offer Gift Cards for the premium version of the Reading Club in all four languages. If you are purchasing for someone who resides within the European Union, please use the correct “including VAT” option to ensure that they will not be charged anything when signing up for the course.

Here’s an outline of the process:

  1. Go to
  2. Choose the language and season (taking care to choose including or excluding VAT, depending on the location of your recipient).
  3. Click “buy”.
  4. Enter the name and email address of the recipient.
  5. You can choose to send the Gift Card immediately, or on a specific day.
  6. Enter a message if you wish.
  7. Provide your email address and payment details.
  8. Either immediately or on the day you have identified, the recipient will receive the Gift Card by email. This email will include a code. The recipient should visit and find the correct course. They should then go ahead and click on “sign up”, and enter the code they have received in the appropriate area at checkout.
