I would love to help others learn, especially with english being one of the most common languages used in america. My grandfather is originally from panama and he moved here and spoke no english he explained that he had a hard time learning english because he sorta had to pick it up as he went no one really taught it to him so i understand the frustration. Regardless of how difficult it may seem at times it is okay anyone can learn and i am here to help as much as possible.

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

I highly recommend Isabelle."

Learn English in Atlanta

About 1.5 billion people speak English in the world, and only around 360 million are native speakers. This means that despite English's difficult pronunciation rules, strange spelling, and irregular conjugations, more than a billion people are currently studying English as a second language. And the number of non-native English speakers is only expected to grow. 

But studying English with only a textbook will make it difficult to learn proper pronunciation. It also makes it tough to pick up nuances that you can only learn from an experienced tutor. In this guide, we’ll discuss how learning ESL in Atlanta, Georgia can help you speak like a native and reach your desired level of proficiency faster.

The Benefits of Learning English as a Second Language in Atlanta, GA
...

>Lots of factors make Atlanta a great place to learn English. Friendly people fill the city and welcome newcomers with southern hospitality. Plus, while you take English classes in Atlanta, GA, you'll be able to immerse yourself in the language by enjoying everything the city has to offer. 

One of the largest cities in the southern United States, Atlanta offers everything from cultural events and historical exhibits to professional sports, great food, and educational centers. On a hot day, consider touring the World of Coca-Cola, where you can take an interactive trip through the history of the Coca-Cola Company and sample over 100 different ice-cold beverages. 

You can also take in American culture while strolling through Piedmont Park, watching a show at the Fox Theater, or observing wildlife at Zoo Atlanta. And be sure to try a top-rated dish at B's Cracklin' Barbecue - one of Atlanta's most popular barbecue restaurants.

Consider using a meeting room at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, or catch a cool breeze at Centennial Olympic Park. 

After you've had a couple of lessons, consider venturing out with your Atlanta English tutor for a more immersive lesson. Take in a ball game at Turner Field, or ask your tutor for a cultural experience at a local restaurant serving up authentic southern food, like South City Kitchen Midtown or Mary Mac's Tea Room.

If you prefer to take online ESL classes in Atlanta, we recommend finding a location with strong WiFi where you’ll be able to hear your instructor.

Reading and singing are both great ways to supplement your ESL classes. Jive to some music at Fantasyland Records. Then, find a juicy title on the shelves of a local bookstore, like A Cappella Books. 

You can also practice English in a local Meetup group like the Atlanta English Language and TOEFL/IELTS Meetup. However you perfect your conjugations and pronunciations with your English tutor in Atlanta, learning ESL is sure to take you far in this busy and diverse city!
