Marie is an amazing teacher! She's patient, thorough and makes learning fun!
Emily
I enjoy my French lessons with Marie immensely. Learning with her is more effective than an online application because you get direct feedback on your pronunciation. Her feedback is kind and nonjudgmental. She creates a fun and accepting environment.
Danielle
Marie is an incredible teacher — I can't recommend her highly enough. As a beginner, I've learned more in a few weeks with Marie than months of self-taught app-based language. Her attention to pronunciation has given me confidence, and her helpful reminders and tips stay with me long after our lessons are over.

Not only is Marie excellent in communicating the basics of language, but she's also kind, patient, encouraging, and fun to work with. I look forward to our sessions each week!

Embraced by the Deaf community in the state of Massachusetts over 10 years ago, I was submerged in the language and the culture during and after losing what was left of my hearing. I’ve never felt so much love and support in my life. It was quite touching. During the whole “losing my hearing” process, I quickly picked up American Sign Language and began teaching at TLC Deaf.

My family relocated to a different state and I began teaching homeschooled students ASL online via other video chat apps like FT, Skype, etc.

I had no idea that this (TakeLessons) existed and I’m not even sure how I stumbled across this app. I’ve been seeing various vocabulary signed differently compared to what I learned so I’ve been joining classes as well. Furthermore, I believe that there will always be something for you to learn no matter how skilled you are.

I noticed that there were no morning classes during the week and figured that I could share what I know with those who prefer morning classes.

About Brandy Q

I’m fun, innovative, interactive and insightful. I believe that I am skilled at meeting people where they are, understanding how they learn, and adjusting my style of teaching to match their needs. My classes are voice off, but I have many visual cues along with text that will help students underst

If you plan to use Chinese at work, we can focus our lessons around dialogue and vocabulary that relates directly to your job or industry. If you are a student and want to improve your academic performance in Chinese, I can train you to utilize more efficient ways of studying and practicing. If you would like to gain exposure to or build a foundation in Mandarin Chinese, I can also help you accomplish this.

"The lesson went well. I did not expect much with the first one since we need to get to know each other and understand what exactly I am looking to learn. She was encouraging and upbeat which made the experience enjoyable. Of course, the real test is what I learned. I spoke just now with a work colleague from China on We Chat and went over what Jasmine had taught me. He noticed a big improvement in my pronunciation today compared to how it was just a few weeks ago on my most recent trip to China."

Has me cracking up every session!) Hunter makes you feel completely comfortable but knows how to get serious and touch and get stuff done. I’m really starting to notice a difference in the way I talk and the way I sound. She gives you very simple, very effective exercises for practice in between sessions an good memory hooks. Very organized and an excellent understanding of the work and accents in general. Fantastic teacher. I’m sure you’ll love her."

French Pronunciation Guide: Avoid These Common Mistakes!

Many French students struggle with their pronunciation at first. Try these practical tips from opera voice teacher Elaina R. to get the right sounds out... French is beautiful. Almost muttered, flowing from vowel to vowel, French has earned a reputation as the "language d’amour." Why is it, then, that everyone in your French class sounds so utterly unromantic? Put succinctly, it’s because English and French have very different phonetic rules. Lots of letters are pronounced completely …
