So it’s been 6 months since I started learning Russian with Anna and I never knew I could learn so much. She’s a very talented, and professional teacher. Her lessons are interesting, and informative making you always want to learn more. I’ve never tried to learn a language but with her if you show her you want to learn and you’re dedicated she’ll take your weaknesses and make them strengths but also make your strengths even stronger. I couldn’t imagine learning as well from anyone else. I needed to learn the Russian language for my travels and I know her classes will have me more than prepared. I Definitely would recommend Anna as the best choice for anyone ready to start their Russian journey.

I love words, the concepts behind grammar, the art of communication. As a journalist, I have enjoyed writing about dance and film, as well as writing proposals, and film festival programs, radio scripts, magazine articles, and interviews.

About Deirdre

Languages have always fascinated me. Music is a language, a universal one. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and Twi when I had a semester studying dance & drumming in Ghana. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of flamenco ensnar

"Great English Teacher

Jan is a great teacher, she understands what you need for making your English language better. I have been her student for about six months, and she taught me so much and now my English is really good. With Jan you save money and you learn in the best way ever. She loves what she is doing and she is very smart. I shopped a lot for a private teacher on the internet and in social media and I am so happy I found her. My English now is great and I loved my classes with Jan. The time went very fast and I learned more and more with her about the English language. Sam S, Los Angeles"

"I have been studying for my TOEFL and Rosita has been helping me! My English has improved a lot! I like her online classes because she sends me the slides that she uses in my lessons so I can use it for my homework. After I am going to take her singing lessons because those are very fun too. I love this teacher she is kind and patience and makes me feel more secure that I can pass. I had learned a lot from her! She teaches Japanese and Spanish too and that helps me a lot too!

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
