- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
Have you ever tried to learn Hindi (or any language, for that matter), and I just wouldn't stick? How about you wanted to start learning, but it felt daunting because the book -- or the teacher or whatever -- was using jargon you felt you needed a dictionary to understand?
I have been teaching and tutoring language for about nine years now, and my lessons are taught the same as I learned them; conversationally, repetitive (to practice recall), only a few word at a time, and overall, NATURALLY.
I was exposed to multiple languages within my environment for the first seventeen years of my life before I decided to turn a thin I loved so much into a hobby.
And through all the books and lessons I've been through, there's one thing that they've missed: when it comes to language, no matter what age you are, we're all starting out a babies, so we need to learn from scratch!
All o' that, "subjugating the conjugal verb of pre - and post - postposition according to the square root of 34" It give me a headache just thinking about it.
If I hold up a picture of a fish, and I say to you, "machalee" would you eventually figure out what "machalee" means? Exactly.
We don't need all o' that. Just good, honest conversation.
I'm looking forward to talking with you.

My name is Amargeaux, and I have been have been teaching and tutoring language for about nine years.
I was exposed to multiple languages for, like, the first seventeen years of my life before I ever wanted to make languages into a hobby. But when I did, I realized that people were making language learning harder than it actually was.
They were giving a bunch of jargon no one understood to teach something so simple, you know? You don't need crazy, brainiac, scientific words in order to learn just one new word!
When I teach people languages , I teach them the same way they learned English; in a normal conversation.
(I Promise I won't use baby talk with you,) But you DO start off as if you were a baby, because frankly, when it comes to a new language, you are. No offense.
I want to just talk with you. The best way to learn is to be as organic as possible, which is not hard. I love people, and I'm VERY patient.
We use conversation to be very repetitive (for the sake of practicing recall -- VERY important!!) And then we'll do the occasional drill just to make sure it's sticking (as if it isn't already.)
We will learn just a few words at a time, so you won't have to worry about feeling overwhelmed, and we'll keep switching back and forth Between English and your new language until you have enough in your vocabulary to speak only the new language.
You know you can do this, otherwise you wouldn't be looking for a teacher. I don't even know you yet, and I KNOW you're capable of everything you put your mind to.
Let me give you a chance to show you just how capable you are.
Looking forward to chatting with you. Lots of love!
