My first lesson was great. Tarun ji immediately started our lesson in Hindi and I learned so many new words in just an hour lesson. Looking forward to more lessons to come and very inspired to learn with my great teacher!

Very good Hindi Instructor! Very patient with her students!
Yuj & Veer K.
Taruna seems very good at getting kids interested in learning. My kids had their first session yesterday and she kept the conversations a mix of Hindi and English - that probably was a big reason my kids felt comfortable and ready to continue learning with her. Also, she is pleasant and welcoming.

I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Lesson and teacher were great! Although only an hour in duration, I feel I have learned a weeks worth of language.

I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.

She is very kind,knowledgeable teacher and she is very good with kids.

I think she is a great teacher. I have learned a lot in her class. She delivers the information well and is understanding of student needs. I think she makes acting an enjoyable process. There will be decent amount of work in her class but work that makes sense to shape your future in the field. I highly recommend her.
Johenfy
Professor Duarte is amazing at her craft. She has years of experience and will help you find and develop your own craft. Her courses are a must for both beginners and advanced users.
Jesse
I had Cristina for a fifteen-week-long Auditions Technique class and I learned so much from her. I'm a fairly confident actor but for most of my life I've been terrible at auditions and after taking this class I've improved tenfold. We are going through unprecedented times right now and Cristina made our class's transition from in person to online completely seamless, which I appreciate and commend her for.

"Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!"

In few lessons that we had he helped me a lot. He is patient, encouraging and provides a comfortable environment during lessons. He is able to guide you and gives a strong foundation to learn the American Accent.

Highly recommend!"

The Korean Future Tense Part 1 : Describing the Probable Future

As you progress in your Korean lessons, you will learn different ways to describe different events in the past, present, and future. Here's a look at the Korean future tense with Minneapolis, MN teacher Bryce J... Some linguists argue that there actually isn't a Korean future tense, but that doesn't mean there is no way to talk about future events. In fact,  there are actually five ways to describe the future in Korean: probable future, definite future, promissory future, intentional fu …
