Teacher Case Studies
Language Taught: English
Years of teaching experience: 13
Language Trainers: Hi, Erin! Can you tell us something about your teaching background? Why you teach, your qualifications and history, and what attracted you to Language Trainers
Erin: Hello! Yes, I teach English. I have CELTA certification in English as a Second Language and have worked as a teacher since 2008. I have taught classes online, and delivered face-to-face courses in company offices and language schools. I chose a career in teaching because I enjoy meeting people from different countries and, also, I wanted a job that allowed me to travel. Language Trainers offered me the opportunity to work one-to-one with students (online and face-to-face) and gives my students and me flexibility on how we want to schedule our lessons.
Language Trainers: What is your favorite thing about working with Language Trainers, and can you think of any fond moments from your time working with us?
Erin: The communication is very good between the management and the teachers. And anytime my students and I play Taboo to review new vocabulary is fun and memorable.
Language Trainers: What are your expectations in your classes? What should your students bring to each lesson, and what do you expect of yourself?
Erin: I enjoy working with students who enjoy talking about various subjects and are also comfortable working on grammar production, or grammar in spoken context. Meanwhile, my students can expect me to place lots of focus on speaking production, correct sentence structure and new vocabulary.
Language Trainers: It sounds like you work hard to give your students a solid foundation of language knowledge. Are there any fun expressions you like to teach, as well?
Erin: Oh, yes. English is full of them. Just today, I discussed the expression 'hit the nail on the head' with a student, which means to find the exact right answer.
Language Trainers: Would you recommend all students to study with Language Trainers?
Erin: Definitely! The one-to-one interaction with a teacher makes the experience very personal. Students can communicate directly to their teacher about what specific things they need help with.
Client Case Studies
” I have learned conversational Japanese, as well as how to write basic Japanese characters in only three months”Learning Japanese & Taking Business Abroad
Language Trainers: Hello, Cheryl. Thank you for agreeing to share your thoughts and experiences with us, today! It’s great to talk to you! Would you mind telling us a little about yourself? Where do you live, and which language did you study and why?
Cheryl: I live in the Central Valley in California but I wanted to learn Japanese as I have a global skincare business which is expanding to Japan in 2020. I wasn't sure how to get started or where I could find classes, but [I decided on Language Trainers] after doing my research online and multiple communications via email.
Language Trainers: Wow, congratulations on the success of your business. That’s quite the target you have set yourself. There are other language teaching businesses available; so, what made you choose Language Trainers? What made our service stand out?
Cheryl: The in-house staff were easy to work with and I love my tutor. She is very patient and works with me at my pace. In addition, she customizes my lessons, so they really are what's best suited for me.
Language Trainers: I am thrilled to hear that, Cheryl! And is the course working? Have you noticed an improvement?
Cheryl: I have learned conversational Japanese, as well as how to write basic Japanese characters in only three months. Of course, I practice a lot and try to take two classes per week, my schedule permitting. I am pleased that I have accomplished my language goals.
Language Trainers: Well done! That is excellent progress and a real testament to your commitment. And would you recommend Language Trainers to friends and family?
Cheryl: Language Trainers is not inexpensive, but assuming cost is not someone’s primary factor, I would recommend Language Trainers to them. And I like that customers can pay on a payment plan, if it helps.
Language Trainers: That’s great to know! And how would you persuade them to choose us?
Cheryl: If you are looking to learn a language, what better time than now, when so many of us are sequestered in our homes. It is always good to expose yourself to new challenges, and I think learning a new language is always great.
Language Trainers: We couldn’t agree more! Well, good luck taking your business to Japan, Cheryl! What are some of the phrases you think you will use most often out there?
Cheryl: I have several new phrases I use often, but my favorites are: Konichi wa! O genki desuka? (Hello, how are you?) Tanoshimi ni shitsteimasu! (I'm looking forward to it!) Tsukareta, oyasuminasi. (I'm tired, good night) Arigato gozaimasu! (Thank you very much!)
