Brooklyn: One of the most famous boroughs in arguably the single most cosmopolitan city in the world. As of 2010, only about 50% of residents ages 5 and older spoke English at home. An estimated 45% of Brooklyn residents are native foreign language speakers. About 20% of residents are native Spanish speakers, but the list of other non-English languages that are locally spoken is endless. Learning any of these languages could be constructive to your career and personal life, be it Russian, German, French, Italian, Arabic, or one of the many others sprinkled about Brooklyn's streets.
So what are you waiting for? Brooklyn is the place to be and one of the most valuable skills to have is fluency in a foreign language. This holds true as much for ordering food as it does for making complex business negotiations. For those living in Brooklyn, planning a trip abroad, or looking to connect with friends and family overseas, it’s in your best interest to know a second (or third! or fourth!) language.

”My daughter is very much enjoying the tutoring. She even said her Italian genes must be coming through because she thinks she enjoys the Italian language more than even French.”Italian course in Brooklyn
”Our lessons vary quite a lot. Sometimes we have plenty of questions on English words/sentences we saw/heared during the week. Sometimes we do some grammar lessons + exercises. Sometimes we speak about American history/habits/way of life/culture/movies... and it suits us perfectly!”English course in Brooklyn
