Deanna W.

Hello, English-learners!

My name is Deanna and I am an American accent and business English coach certified in both ESL and PESL (Pronouncing English as a second language)!

After spending years working with hundreds of students as an ESL instructor in Asia, both in-person and online, I noticed that nearly all had not been provided adequate American accent training before coming to me, no matter their skill levels or professional ambitions. Tired of seeing these dedicated English language learners struggle to properly express themselves, I decided to move away from traditional ESL curriculum to focus on accent reduction.

My students hail from all over the world-- China, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Italy, France, Mexico, and more. Along with teaching business and general English, I have also worked as a TOEFL and IELTS prep teacher for all English subjects. I am also passionate about providing career training for expats working in the States, including interview skills, presentation prep,

I am an international businessman who lives in Spain but spends a lot of time out of country. My son Hugo was having difficulty with his English at institudo so I found Mr. Langton to come tutor him. Mr. Langton is such a wonderful tutor. He was very energetic and engaging. My son is no longer struggling with English after Mr. Langton's help.

"Basma keeps lessons interesting by adding something new every time- but still reviewing the basics!
I feel more confident with each new lesson. If you want a teacher who is a real partner with you in your learning journey...it's Basma."

"Professor Jean-Luc is phenomenal. I think the material he has chosen to give lessons with is very clear and has helped me improve a lot. Before every lesson he makes sure to send you the material for the next class, which helps a lot specially when you are learning online. The main reason why I chose him is because he is a french native speaker, which was extremely important to me because all my life I had french teachers that weren't french, so my pronunciation was a little bit weird-- I feel that I have improved a lot these 4 months :). I started learning French when I was 11 years old and Professor Jean-Luc helped me refresh my mind--it is interesting how he helped me remember many small grammar and writing details. I am very satisfied! Thank you Professor."

"I picked Zach because he is from Paris and my husband and I just returned from a trip there. We want to go back next year with improved communication abilities. Zach will not only be able to teach us the language we want to know, but also give us tips about Paris and France in general from a native's point of view.
Zach started me out perfectly for my first French lesson. It was challenging enough but not overwhelming. I love that (for a part of it) he recorded me so I could hear what I sounded I sound like speaking French -very helpful!! He has given me just enough to work on between lessons and left me motivated for what's to come!"

"Wolfgang is a wonderful, tutor, teacher and mentor. For quite awhile I have wanted to learn to speak German. Wolfgang has and continues to guide me toward my goal.

Wolfgang is very patient, flexible and understanding. He has adapted his lessons to best fit my way of learning. This is no simple task in itself. But Wolfgang has found a method of teaching that goes well beyond words and phrases. It strengthens my understanding of the culture. This is critical to successfully comprehending any language.

Wolfgang is a true Linguist. His expertise is far-reaching, not just in syntax or morphology, but in the history from which the language is born. This knowledge is indispensable and cannot be found elsewhere."

"I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often."

15 Fun-to-Say Japanese Onomatopoeias (With Audio)

What Are Japanese Onomatopoeias? An onomatopoeia is a word where meaning is derived from a sound, or when a word sounds like how it looks. In English, we have onomatopoeias like "cock-a-doodle-doo" for the sound a rooster makes, or "crunch" for the act of crushing things. Onomatopoeias are quite common in many, if not all languages. We tend to notice them most in comics as sound effects: zippers "zip" and light switches "click." They're fun to say and they certainly aren't hard to learn. …
