” Lessons are going very well. My trainer's efforts are catering right to my needs. I am learning things about languages that I never knew! My 2 hour lessons go by way too fast! ”Russian course in Toronto
”My classes are going smoothly. My teacher really breaks everything down and explains how the words form. It's also nice that she approaches the learning with different methods so it really makes the learning process a lot easier. The book is also interesting. I like the cultural aspects that it mentions and it works as a good guideline to follow and branch out from. Overall, I've enjoyed my experience so far.”Dutch course in Vancouver
”The German lessons are going well. My teacher is very friendly and well organized. He puts a lot of effort into his lessons and doesn’t over work you. He gives you time to learn so you feel confident as you progress. He keeps the starting simple so you don’t get frustrated before you even begin. I have learned a lot in the past few weeks and am very happy with the course.”German course in Saskatoon

”The Japanase lessons with Mie have been going well. Mie's classes are well structured and she encourages me to speak Japanese during the lesson. I think that I have learned to speak much better over the past couple of months. I also found that a lesson a week is a good pace for my learning compared to twice a week that I had with a previous teacher.”Japanese course in Windsor
”At the moment I am OK in regards with lessons. I will just be practicing the Farsi that I have learned and build on that.In terms of my lessons, they have been really great. Ghazaleh is a really great teacher and uses different methods to help me remember words!”Farsi course in Mississauga

She doesn't limit lessons to the book, she prepares each class very well and is very responsible and structured with her teaching.”Italian course in Calgary
”I've really enjoyed my lessons. Mariya is a great teacher. The first lesson went very well, though I'm a slow learner. Mariya was very patient with me...and with my cats, some of whom tried to 'help' me with my lesson!”Russian course in Mississauga

She has been a great teacher and has definitely helped me increase my Japanese language skills. ”Japanese course in Guelph
”My lessons are going really well! Youmi is a wonderful teacher and I have nothing bad to say about her whatsoever: A+”Korean course in Edmonton

She is a great teacher and great at incorporating all different learning styles and aspects into our lessons.”Japanese course in Guelph

”The German lessons are going very well. Frau has me on a very good course of learning! I have found her approach with me very motivating.”German course in Windsor
”I have been learning Japanese for about 8 months, covering hiragana and katakana, grade 1-3 kanji reading, and volume II of "Japanese for Busy People". Overall, I'm very satisfied with my Japanese classes. Aside from being kind and polite, my teacher is always on time for the lessons. He is also flexible and open to ideas. He would not mind modifying the course content to fit with his student's needs and wants. He would even went a step further by providing good materials for learning. An example to that would be, when I asked my teacher to modify the course content to be more reading heavy rather than writing. He'd then went to Japanese library every other week to borrow different Japanese kids books and I'd then learn by reading a lot of interesting books fit for my level. I'm honestly very touched by his ingenuity and the amount of efforts he took to guide me in my language learning.”Japanese course in Windsor
”We are so happy with the work that my children's teacher has been doing! She is always incredibly well prepared and makes the lessons fun with games and songs that the kids always enjoy. We are very pleased and anticipate continuing on with lessons once we have completed our initial 20 lessons. We have been very happy with our experience with Language Trainers and would recommend you very highly!”Italian course in London

”The Italian lessons are still going well. My teacher is great!”Italian course in Oakville
”After just a few Spanish classes, I am already able to converse with native speakers. I felt confident and really enjoyed it. I have learned a lot! I know that at the end of my classes I will be able to speak even better.”Spanish course in Brampton
”Valentina is a perfect match. She is very knowledgeable and so sweet. My lessons with her are going great!”Spanish course in Brampton
”I am thoroughly pleased with the Japanese lessons so far, and have not a single negative thing to report. Norie and my schedules line up quite well, so getting the sessions in has been very simple and easy. She is going above and beyond her call of duty, and educating me in culture, tradition, norms, and helpful tips for daily life in addition to her well structured, easy to follow language lessons. I'd be hard pressed to believe that I could have found a better teacher, and I can confidently say that this was well worth the money.”Japanese course in Calgary
”The students are enjoying the courses and like the one on one with the teacher. They feel it gives better progress than the group classes they previously had with other companies.”French course in Toronto

”My lessons with Slavica are going well. We get along well. She is fun, enthusiastic and knowledgable. Thanks!”Croatian course in Toronto
”Hortense is wonderful. I am very happy to have her as an instructor. I have really improved my ear and she is very interesting to talk with.”French course in Vaughan
”My trainer has been great and has adapted to my needs well. For example, I've been self-studying with a textbook and she's helped me work through the exercises during our sessions, which has allowed me to not jumble up the different grammar topics. There were not many in-person Urdu lesson options where I live, and the fact that Language Trainers was able to find somebody that could meet every day for a short period of time and without a fixed syllabus was great. My schedule didn't permit me to start a course with a fixed date or travel very far to attend lessons.”Urdu course in Vancouver
”It’s been so nice to get some of my Japanese back and I really like my instructor! ”Japanese course in Guelph
”Our lessons are going well. We chose Language Trainers because you offer private language services and we have been extremely happy.”Italian course in Cambridge

”My Dutch lessons are going very well because my teacher makes it easy and fun for me. ”Dutch course in Calgary

Teacher Case Studies
Name: Linda Maria
Language Taught: English
Years of teaching experience: 12
What language do you teach and why did you choose teaching as your career?
Teaching chose ME as a career after a number of years in the corporate world. I went through a life-changing evaluation of my personal and professional priorities and goals. I wanted to use the international work experience in a way that would “give back” to the world, and I felt this was possible through teaching English and coaching adult professionals on international cultural and business practices.
What age group do you usually teach?
I teach adults and all of my Language Trainers students thus far have been lawyers, investment bankers, IT specialists, politicians, company owners/founders, advertising and marketing executives, and a number of wives of foreign executives. Every student is unique and an inspiration to me to be a better teacher!
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that in life, we are all teachers and students to one another. My general philosophy is that our lessons are either positive —or not so positive—and we learn important lessons from both. When I teach, I’m personally and professionally so much happier. I’m helping and mentoring others in a very positive way. Our mutual experiences together as teacher-students reach so many others in the most amazing way!
What do you look for in a student?
On a personal level, I look for curiosity in a student, a willingness to make the most of their experience in NYC and in the USA in general, and the ability to think critically, probe deeper, and understand the bigger picture. On the technical and practical side, I look for a few things and assess these in every class or as often as possible. These are: a student’s need for the targeted language, the student’s motivation, the student’s individual prominent learning style, and any outside learning barriers or interferences.
What should students expect in you as a teacher?
As a teacher, I am enthusiastic, caring, and strongly encouraging of my students that they try their best…and then some! I expect much out of my students and I hope they expect even MORE from me. I do give a lot of myself. I’m empathetic and understanding to their feelings and life situations, as I’ve been in their same situation myself. Many of my Language Trainers students have been ‘shell shocked’ by their working experience in the United States; both at the pace to perform and the workload to handle. Our classes are the one place they can comfortably express this and feel understood.
Describe your favorite aspect of working for Language Trainers.
I love working for Language Trainers as well as the opportunity to work with such fantastic and interesting students from all over the world. I really cannot describe just one favorite teaching experience. Every class and every student is different. What I love most of all about teaching is that my students are teachers to ME. They push me to be a better teacher and a better person. They bring their world to me, and they do so with much grace, charm, humor, and integrity. To Language Trainers I’d like to say, thank you for the privilege to work with such students, and for the opportunity to be their teacher.
Client Case Studies
”Yes, the program has been extremely helpful. My teacher was the most helpful and useful.”Rediscovering the Spanish Language
Language Trainers: Good afternoon, Bob. How are you doing?
Bob Busch: Good afternoon. I’m good, thanks.
Language Trainers: Would you mind telling us a bit about yourself?
Bob Busch: My name is Bob, I am 50 years old, and work as a CPA. I began studying Spanish with Language Trainers in November of 2013.
Language Trainers: And why did you begin studying Spanish? What were your reasons and goals?
Bob Busch: Ten years ago, I was living in Guatemala. I became conversationally proficient, but after I left I did not keep practicing. Although I should have. In Tampa we have several stations that broadcast the same shows —including news programs—in both English and Spanish. I began because I wanted to be conversationally fluent again.
Language Trainers: So, why did you choose Language Trainers?
Bob Busch: My employer found the company and picked my program for me.
Language Trainers: And did you find Language Trainers helpful?
Bob Busch: Yes, the program has been extremely helpful.
Language Trainers: What was the most helpful part about the course?
Bob Busch: My teacher has been the most helpful and useful. My challenge isn’t vocabulary, it’s conversational: I can hear a word that I know, but still not recognize it immediately. My teacher helps me overcome this.
Language Trainers: Do you think you would recommend Language Trainers?
Bob Busch: Yes. Yes, I would recommend Language Trainers!
Language Trainers: And on a final note, what’s your favorite new expression in Spanish?
Bob Busch: Well, I’d be better off not to say. It’s a funny expression, but after translating it literally to English, I might get slapped!
