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!

Recommend with my eyes closed. This instructor, Diana, is caring, smart, and genuinely interested in helping you learn. Always prepared! She wants you to feel comfortable and confident in learning a new language. I’ve recommended her already to all of my non-English speaking family and friends.

Namaste everyone

Being here from eastern India I know how difficult it is to make kids understand the value of hindi. With me I make the subject interesting and beautiful with them. I have taught hindi to various age groups here. I will teach them grammar, how to connect different words to form a sentence and various other things.

I hope I will be able to share my knowledge and experience with you all and keep my good work.

I've had about 3 lessons with Amrita so far and she's really great. Accounting topics that professors talk about in class that can be hard at times Amrita breaks down and makes it really easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and you can definitely depend on her to teach you and help you in every way. I highly recommend her!!! :)

"I was a student in Mr. Chau Nguyen’s beginner Vietnamese class. Trying to speak a new language can be embarrassing, but Mr. Nguyen created an encouraging atmosphere and was very patient. He gives ample opportunity for students to ask questions and provides thorough explanations. Mr. Nguyen did a great job of breaking down the lessons in manageable segments that were appropriately challenging. He also used various teaching techniques so that each class was fresh and unpredictable.

I put in the time to complete the homework and review the vocabulary and sentence structures that we'd covered each week. After a handful of classes, I went from practically zero language ability (aside from a few food terms) to being able to articulate some simple questions and answers in Vietnamese. I looked forward to attending the classes and found them to be rewarding."
