I feel that learning in general and learning a foreign language in particular is about repetition and I ask my students to repeat everything I teach over and over again until they know it by heart. I keep my lessons simple to avoid overwhelming the students and to allow time for them to repeat what they learned earlier. I teach the words that form part of the so called core vocabulary; words that are chosen according to frequency and range (in the sense that they “occur across a wide variety of texts”) It is often said that the first 2000 most frequent words cover approximately 90% of the vocabulary used by native-speakers in daily conversations. This means that for a student they represent the basic resource to be able to communicate.

Stefania was a great teacher, full of energy and encouragement. She customized the lesson plan for our needs (traveling to Italy, and wanting a crash course in conversational Italian). She made the learning fun, and even made the grammar piece (the hardest part of Italian) go quick! I feel motivated to study for our next lesson, and look forward to it.

I'm very happy with my teacher. She is very patient and sweet teaching. Of course I recommend her to anyone who really wants to learn.
She is also a teacher in the Bolingbrook library, but I continue to choose my time alone with her.
Thank you Elizabeth for your dedication!

"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

Hello, my name is Anna, I’m a native Russian speaking person) I’ve been living in USA for 6 years, and fluently can speak English, that would help our learning process. To be honest with you I don’t hold a degree in Russian and I also might be not the best academically correct teacher, I don’t have an fabulous experience in teaching Russian and I don’t have a super smart teaching methods, but I do have a sense of humor and I know that our time of learning will be super productive and you will forget about time) I had a great experience of teaching how to communicate with Russian person, how to pronounce the words correctly, how to joke with Russians and the most importantly how to curse, just kidding, because I also can teach kids) Moreover, we will learn how to understand Russian abracadabra letters and how to read)
Russian language is beautiful and I feel lucky to be its representative

We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

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. Instead, it's best to have a few German expressions memorized or written down before you go. That way, if you …
