I cannot find words to explain Mojy's incredible job and knowledge. All I know is " She is the Best. The Best of the Best". She makes Farsi learning Just Fun ... She is incredible. she is very encouraging and keeps asking the student to believe in their strengh and keep confident and NOT TO GIVE UP. ... If it wasn't for her, I wouldnt have passed my DLPT with score 3+/ 4. unbelievable!!! I owe my linguist current job to Mojy. She is a beautiful, knowledgeable, patient, reliable, and lovable instructor with a great level of humbleness. Whoever has her now, I am jealous of... LOL. I miss my lovely teacher a lot. I love you, Mojy.....

Mojy is BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Persian Languages and teaching. She is very positive and wouldn't let you go to the next step before she makes sure you have learned what you need with fun and enthusiasm. She is very educated and learned about both Persian language and culture. She has a great understanding of the students' needs. Well, She is very pushy, but that is what we need to pass DLPT . I would not have GOTTEN 3/3+ if I would not have had Mojy for my teacher. Go Mojy! ;)
June 7, 2017
Mojy is by far the most qualified and talented language instructor I have ever had. After a week of class it was clear that she was an instructor that was on a completely different level than my instructors in the past. While under her instruction i vastly improved in every facet of my language, both in skill and in confidence. Her class room provides a relaxed but highly focused environment, and she genuinely cares about her student's success. If you give her your attention and effort then you will not be disappointment with the results.

I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

I am from El Salvador and have lived in the US for 10 years. When learning a new language I like my students to have the control of what they want to learn based on their interests. My conversational classes are all about having a good chat that it is fun for you and exciting and at the end you take with you some new vocabulary and confidence along the way.

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

Dr. Pande was punctual and flexible. She worked with my schedule. Her knowledge is encyclopedic. I will highly recommend her.

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
