As I needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills. Thanks to my knowledge of other languages (and cultures), I am uniquely positioned to understand some of the English language's challenges.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students. I also help edit resumes, and ask relevant questions about your professional journey...
I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! Yay! We can start in-person lessons again, as long as basic distancing is kept. I have been vaccinated and I would prefer my students to be vaccinated, too, but it's not a deal breaker. I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speaker

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

Do you remember your days of foreign language class in school? I do, and it was awful! We spent hour upon hour memorizing vocabulary and grammar. We copied, translated, conjugated, and labelled. And yet, at the end of each year I know exactly what I started with - nothing!

Since then, I've been able to learn two other languages by myself - Spanish and Portuguese. I didn't study these languages in school, or ever step foot inside an foreign-language classroom. Instead, I created my own method of learning that sees language for what it really is - a way to communicate. In my classes, we will focus on communication, as it is the single most important skill you can develop. I will teach you grammar, and I will teach you conjugation. I'll even expect you to learn new vocabulary. But the center of our learning will always be communication. "How can I use this to communicate with others?" Everything we learn will be centered around that question.

Naturally, each class will be designed with

About Nathaniel

I grew up in Florida, USA - about one hour from Orlando. As a teenager, I started to learn my first foreign language - Portuguese. Although I didn't have any idea how to really learn a language, I knew that I loved learning about a new culture, as well as seeing the world through a new language. A f

"When I came to the US my English language level was not great. I had studied in school in Turkey, but my pronunciation was difficult to understand and the grammar was impossible for me. I have been taking classes for about 1.5 years now with Micah and another instructor that works for her, and I have improved a lot. I have even been giving presentations at my job now. I am an engineer.

I was not expecting to improve my level like that in 1.5 years. Learn English or Spanish LLC has talented teachers. Now I am planning to take the TOEFL in 6 months, and I will prepare for it with them. After that, my goal is a Masters degree. I highly recommend classes with them.

They are extremely effective teachers."

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
