She really took the time to understand what I need and worked with me to help me with my breathing and technique. I am definitely taking more lessons from Benedetta.

I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!

I found Monica a very good teacher. She used props perfectly well and took time to listen to me. She was patient with me until I got it right. Her face exuded warmth through her smile. She also gives rewards so often which I found interesting. I would recommend her for anyone in need of an English teacher online

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

She did a great job of teaching the foundation of sentence structures, vowels and consonants, and proper use of casual vs. formal - which helped me jump right into the lesson.

10 Must-Know German Expressions for Traveling Abroad

Do you have a trip planned to Germany? Traveling abroad is an exciting adventure as it can open your eyes to new customs, cultures, and people. While the experience is often amazing, there's one thing many people don't think about before they go—the language barrier. You'll find that there are many English-speaking people in Germany, but you won't always be able to identify them.
