As a native English speaker, and as someone who has studied one of the most difficult languages in the world (Chinese), I know firsthand how difficult it can be to learn a new language; and more importantly, to be able to speak like natives do. As an English teacher, I make it my priority to teach students from all backgrounds how to sound like a native speaker, both in pronunciation as well as in grammar and correct native usage of words, expressions, and tonality. Books and YouTube videos can only get you so far on your path to English mastery! You need a native speaker with sensitivity to your personal needs and goals to help guide you on your path. So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

Utilizo la aplicación Zoom para lecciones de inglés interactivas en vivo desde la comodidad de su hogar. Durante cinco años en Suiza, enseñé inglés como segundo idioma a todos los niveles y todas las edades en la Escuela Internacional de Idiomas Inlingua en la ciudad bilingüe de Biel / Bienne. Esto incluyó lecciones tanto grupales como individuales, desde principiantes hasta estudiantes avanzados que estudian para los exámenes TEFL, TOEFL y Proficiency. Después de eso, pasé tres años en España como director de la misma franquicia de idiomas en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, donde mis deberes incluían preparar a los estudiantes para los exámenes, programas para jóvenes de la escuela de verano, lecciones privadas y grupales, coordinar la programación y trabajar con principiantes a través de los intermedios hasta los más avanzados. El método Inlingua se basa en la inmersión total donde todos los diálogos y ejercicios se llevan a cabo únicamente en el idioma de destino. Como tal, he enseñado a miles de estudiantes de todo el mundo, muchos de los cuales yo no tenía ningún conocimiento de su idioma nativo. Mi lengua materna es el inglés americano, pero soy un lingüista apasionado que domina el español, el francés, el alemán, el schviitzertuutsch y el italiano. También he estudiado (o sigo estudiando) árabe, ruso, hindi / urdu, esperanto, portugués, holandés, griego y silbo gomero. Por lo tanto, comprendo íntimamente tanto las estructuras como los escollos que puede conllevar el aprendizaje de idiomas. Esto me da una gran empatía por el alumno y, como tal, me doy cuenta de que hay muchos modos de aprendizaje: un enfoque de "talla única" no es óptimo. Si alguna vez parece haber un callejón sin salida, siempre habrá otras formas en las que pueda abordar los materiales para que se pueda establecer una comprensión profunda y duradera. He trabajado con una gran cantidad de libros de texto y libros de preparación. Si actualmente está utilizando cierto libro o método con el que se siente cómodo, podemos trabajar con eso. De lo contrario, puedo dar mis recomendaciones. Para los estudiantes de nivel intermedio y avanzado, me gusta comenzar con una prueba de nivel para ver qué sujetos domina y con qué áreas se siente menos cómodo (o no está familiarizado). De ahí puedo derivar un plan de estudios adaptado a sus necesidades tanto a largo como a corto plazo. Si realmente quieres aprender inglés como segundo idioma y / o prepararse para un examen de certificación, se debe a si mismo estudiar con un profesor que tenga años de experiencia en las trincheras y que también posea el conocimiento profundo de la asignatura para ofrecerte. a la fluidez total de la manera más rápida y eficiente! ¡Espero poder ayudarle a lograr sus metas en la vida! ~ I use the Zoom app for live interactive English lessons from the comfort of your home. For five years in Switzerland, I taught English as a Second Language to all levels and all ages at the Inlingua International School of Languages in the bilingual city of Biel/Bienne. This included both group and one-on-one lessons, from dead beginners through advanced students studying for TEFL, TOEFL, and Proficiency exams. After that, I spent three years in Spain as the director of the same language franchise in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, where my duties included prepping students for exams, summer school youth programs, private and group lessons, coordinating scheduling, and working with beginners through intermediate all the way up to the most advanced. The Inlingua method is based on total immersion where all dialog and exercises are conducted solely in the target language. As such I have taught thousands of students from all over the world, many of whom I had no knowledge whatsoever of their native idiom. My mother tongue is American English, but I am an ardent linguist fluent in Spanish, French, German, Schviitzertuutsch, and Italian. I have also studied (or am still studying) Arabic, Russian, Hindi / Urdu, Esperanto, Portuguese, Dutch, Greek, and Silbo Gomero. Therefore, I intimately understand both the structures as well as the pitfalls that language learning can entail. This gives me a great deal of empathy for the learner, and as such, I have the realization that there are many modes of learning – a cookie-cutter “one-size-fits-all” approach is not optimum. If there ever appears to be an impasse, there will always be other ways I am able to approach the materials so that deep and lasting comprehension can be established. I have worked with a great number of textbooks, and prep books. If you are currently using a certain book or method that you are comfortable with, we can work with that. Otherwise, I can give my recommendations. For intermediate and advanced learners, I like to begin with a placement test to see which areas you have mastery of and which areas you are less comfortable (or unfamiliar) with. From that I can derive a curriculum tailored to both your long-term and short-term needs. If you are serious about learning English as a Second Language and/or prepping for a certification exam, you owe it to yourself to study with a teacher who has years of experience in the trenches and also possesses the deep knowledge of the subject to bring you to full fluency the quickest and most efficient way! I look forward to helping you achieve your life goals!

🇯🇵 This class is for only Japanese learners! アメリカン・ハリウッド・イングリッシュ英会話を学びませんか?日本人の方(18歳以下)の為の初心者向けの英会話レッスンです。アメリカの南カリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスに20年以上在住しております。今すぐ役立つアメリカ・ハリウッド英語の英会話をズームでお教え致します。世界各国のどこからでも学んで頂く事ができます。 🌟英語には色んなアクセントがありますが、アメリカのロサンゼルスの標準な英語が1番世界で使わせています。エンターテイメント業界があるハリウッド、また世界的にビジネスを広げている会社はアメリカの会社が1番多いので、標準なアメリカン英語の発音を使う事が好ましいのです。また、アメリカのニュース・キャスターは全てロサンゼルス(南カリフォルニア)の発音に統一されています。例えばアメリカのニューヨーク州、ケンタッキー州やテネシー州など他の州は日本語と同じように方言や強いアクセントがあります。発音が違うと”田舎から来たの?”と思われてしまいがちなのが正直なところ現実です。日本語で例えると、東京弁が標準語ですが、九州弁や秋田弁など習ってしまうと仕事や普通の会話で使えなくなりますね。それと同じで標準なアメリカ・ロサンゼルス発音(南カリフォルニア)の英語が最も好ましいのです。 ロサンゼルス・ハリウッドのエンターテイメント業界や映画業界では、南カリフォルニア州の英語の発音が大重視されます。俳優になる為にニューヨーク州から来たニューヨーク育ちのアメリカ人の私の生徒はハリウッドのアクティング・スクール(俳優の学校)でニューヨーク・アクセント(発音)を南カリフォルニアの発音に直すように強く言われました。なぜなら、ニューヨーク・アクセント(ニューヨーク発音)があると、俳優の役がニューヨーカーの役しか回ってこないからです。俳優として、時には医師、弁護士、大工など、全ての役に対応できるように、特に発音をサザン・カリフォルニア・アクセント(南カリフォルニア州の発音)に直す作業が求められます。日本人からすれば英語さえ習えばいいと思いがちですが、色々な別の州の発音や表現を身につけてしまうと後々、後悔したり、一度身に付いてしまった発音を直す作業には、時間がかかってしまい大変ということなねです。だから最初から南カリフォルニアの発音、ハリウッド英語を学びましょう❣️ 🎖信頼なるバックグラウンド記章バッチ付き教師🎖 Takelessons.comを通しアメリカのバックグラウンド確認調査にパスし犯歴、訴訟歴、性的暴行歴、破産歴、税務滞納歴、交通違反、飲酒運転歴の全く無い教師として安心して未成年のお子様を預けて頂けます。(英語のできる方は、このプロフィールの私の名前の下にある” Background Check”をクリックしてご覧下さい。) 🌟ここでの英会話レッスンは日頃ロサンゼルスで良く使われる日常会話のレッスンや、日本人に難しい発音、アメリカと日本のカルチャーや考え方の違い、テキストを使わず生きた本当の英会話を学びたい方、またアメリカのハリウッド情報なども、お伝えして行きます。 🌟こんな方に!“海外旅行をしてみたい”、“日本に旅行にくる外国人と会話してみたいけど、どのように会話を進めて良いか分からない”、”文法が分からず会話ができない”、”発音に自信がない”、”外国人の彼氏/彼女がいて、もっとコミュニケーションを深く取りたい”、”外国人の友達の言っている事をもっと理解したい”、”外資系の会社や外国人のお客様を扱う業界で働いている”など、あなたの英会話の発達と理解力、聞き取りの向上、スムーズな会話のテクニック、本当のアメリカン英会話をお教え致します。 勇気を出して”Hello”って言ってみませんか? あなたにお会いできるのを楽しみにしています。 I can’t wait to work with you! とし先生 😊❤️

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers. I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.
