Your selection in her instructor, Jenna, could not have been a better match. She worked at my daughter’s level, challenged her, and brought an energy and joy to the lessons that made learning easier and fun.

”My German is now quite good. I am living/working in Germany. I speak only German in the office and daily life as well. I am preparing for the C1 language qualification exam.

Angelica, my trainer, did a good job bringing business/office related terms, phrases, and practice into the lessons and incorporating them with general learning.”German course in Portland, Mechatronics (TP/EMD), Daimler
”The procedures with Language Trainers were quite easy. Being able to coordinate with the trainer with relative autonomy was a great help. That is, the procedure for coordinating lessons, goals, meetings, etc was agreed upon by student and teacher. I did find it good to get regular check ups from you about my satisfaction and how the lessons were proceeding. In contrast, the new tutoring company I am with in Germany have never asked for feedback.”Italian course in Long Island, Extended Care Health Services

”The lessons are going very well. Personally, I benefit a great deal from Ellen my trainer visiting twice a week because it ensures that I actually complete my homework. I would not be able to focus on German without her visits (I would focus all my attention on my MBA, which is not what I want). My trainer, Ellen, motivates me to speak in German and work hard in my studies. She has provided me with very helpful links as well. I very much enjoy my time with her.”German course in Austin

Also she taught me some gestures which I should not follow. Moving forward she advised to watch some videos and we are going to discuss about those stuffs in our sessions to make the classes more interactive.”English course in New York

”I had my last English lessons today. I completed some quizzes Candace had prepared for me and the results were positive. Candace has been a good teacher and she was always well prepared. She assigned homework assignments for me and personalized her teaching plan according to my needs.

Thank you for a good experience with your program.”English course in Houston

Language Trainers has done a great job, especially in pairing me with my great native language instructor!”Norwegian course in San Francisco

Thank you for all your work, Language Trainers!”English course in Raleigh

”Our Hebrew lessons are working out very well! Miriam is an excellent teacher who seems to know exactly what we need. For example, although I have learned Hebrew block letters, this is the first time I’ve been able to decipher Hebrew cursive letters thanks to Miriam’s way of presenting them. We have had to reschedule a couple of lessons due to sickness, but she has been very flexible and helpful. It has worked out for the best that we chose the Skype option. Tomorrow we will be taking a trip to visit family and friends, and thanks to Skype we can take Miriam with us. Thanks for connecting us with her.”Hebrew course in San Antonio

I will recommend her and Language Trainers if somebody needs English lessons.”English course in Los Angeles, Director of the Exclusive Offer EMEA, Sephora
”The lessons with my trainer, Leo, are going well! We have done a lot of the basic verbs, numbers, time and greetings mostly on paper and with flash cards. We are going to begin an oral approach for the next several lessons. Leo says he will only speak Spanish and Jim and I will only reply in Spanish. Leo feels that it is more important at this point to speak some basic spanish well, rather than to add new vocabulary words. And in the book when the dialogues are written, we can now understand the message.”Spanish course in Baltimore

”I am completely satisfied with my Cantonese course. I feel that the content is great and I actually use my lessons in real life. The speed is fine. My tutor and I talked about because Cantonese is a very vast language, we decided to take it slow and made sure that I wasn't overloaded with information and not be able to perfect every lesson, which is, like I said perfectly fine for me.”Cantonese course in Denver

”I can't say enough about the quality of language training that I'm receiving from Language Trainers USA. I was referred to the company by one of my colleagues at work. Already, after several weeks of training, my fluency in Spanish has improved tremendously. I enjoy all of the different ways that my teacher helps me learn: using games, video, music, grammar review and much more. I was a French major in college and I still have some fluency after more than 25 years. Given my past language learning experience, I know that I'm making good progress in Spanish.

We do not have as much time as we would like to put into our studies with jobs, kids, etc., but are not in a rush and will continue to move at our own slower pace. We are very happy with where we are at about the 6-month point. ”Japanese course in Huntington
”The lessons are fantatic. My German tutor, Bridget, is excellent.”German course in Memphis

”I really enjoyed my first class. I had the opportunity to learn and speak a lot in English. I'm very excited to continue my classes.”English course in Dallas
”I would like to write a review in regards to the amazing experience I’ve had so far with language trainers. I searched many different companies when looking to progress my Spanish skills. I was looking for a place where I could really connect with my tutor, they were experienced in the dialect I was looking to learn, it was affordable, and they could travel to me. Not many companies could meet my needs. I finally found Language trainers and have been SO satisfied! They really took their time in pairing me with the proper trainer based on my needs. I was paired with Claudia who is such an excellent teacher. She was able to really assess my current level and find ways to help me move forward so rapidly. As I write this I’ve only had about 7 lessons (2 hours each) and my understanding of Spanish, writing skills, reading, and speaking have more than doubled from the elementary level I was at. I am so excited to continue my learning and hit the goals I’ve set with Claudia. I write this as a huge thank you to my amazing teacher Claudia and Language Trainers for running such an efficient and helpful company!”Spanish course in New York

Teacher Case Studies
Language Taught: English
Years of teaching experience: 13
What language do you teach, and why did you choose teaching as your career?
I teach English as a second —or other—language. I come from a long line of teachers: both parents, aunts, and uncles are all teachers. To me, there is no career more rewarding. I love to see that sparkle in the eyes of my students when they start to understand. Knowledge is power and I want all of my students to have everything they need to succeed in any endeavor they choose.
Where did you study, how long have you been teaching, and what age group do you usually teach?
My focus has been Business English for the most part –however not exclusively. I’ve taught all levels from beginner to advanced. I studied English literature at Fullerton College in Fullerton, California and journalism at University of North Texas. I have the TEFL certification and have completed The Compton Method of Accent Reduction.
What do you look for in a student?
I love to see a motivated student. I also make it my mission to give students the confidence they need. I try to make sure classes are interesting and seek to motivate them through my own desire to learn.
What should students expect in you as a teacher?
Students should expect and receive a program which suits their individual needs. My curriculum is very specific to each student, built according to what they wish to focus on. As a teacher, I will push them; it might get repetitive, and their jaw muscles may hurt, but we will always have fun.
What’s your teaching secret to success?
I always tell my students, “Together, we can do this!” I have said that to all of them. I want their feedback. It helps me build lessons plans specifically for them. I have seen programs that worked, and those that didn’t. From these and throughout my 13 years of teaching ESL, I build successful lessons plans that work for my student.
Describe your favorite aspect of working with Language Trainers.
I get so much support from the team. I’m used to having to bear everything on my own, so the support I get from Language Trainers is essential. From materials for the students, to great links to books, I trust them to send me the best resources. I’ve been working with Language Trainers for three years and I can say with all honesty, they are one of the best schools I have worked with. They care about the students and want the best teaching experience and outcome for them.
Client Case Studies
”My rather ambitious goal was to be able to speak, read, and write Italian and Lia has helped me work towards that.”A Passion for Italian
Language Trainers: Good morning Luvaghn, how are you?
Luvaghn Brown: I’m well, thanks.
Language Trainers: Good to hear. Thanks for taking the time to chat. So, tell us, which language did you study with Language Trainers, and which level were you when you began your course?
Luvaghn Brown: I began studying Italian about three months ago, after being referred to Language Trainers by a friend. I wouldn’t say I was a beginner, as prior to that I knew basic words and phrases, but Lia, my trainer, helped bring it all together.
Language Trainers: Why Italian? What was your reason and what were your goals?
Luvaghn Brown: I’ve traveled to Italy a few times and plan on going back in the future. It’s beautiful there. I love the people and the food. While many speak English in the larger cities, the next time I go I want to be able to speak with people in the small towns we visit. Also, I have friends who are Italian and who speak Italian, and I want to converse with them in their native language.
Language Trainers: How have the classes been going, then?
Luvaghn Brown: They’re going well. My rather ambitious goal was to be able to speak, read, and write Italian and Lia has helped me work towards that. I renewed my classes with her because she was such a great teacher. She uses different materials during lessons: movie clips, slide shows, poems, history and entertaining sayings I translate.
Language Trainers: You said you have friends who speak Italian. Have they commented on your progress? Do you now speak Italian with them?
Luvaghn Brown: Yes, while my speaking ability is still a bit limited, we converse in Italian and they, like Lia, are very supportive and have noted my progress.
Language Trainers: What would you say was the best part of your Language Trainers course?
Luvaghn Brown: Lia, my instructor. It’s tough to put in a nutshell just one reason why she’s been so helpful and motivating. There’s a lot. One of the things I most like is that she keeps me interested by varying the lessons so that I learn about the people and the country as I tackle difficult aspects of the language; like verbs! Her lesson plans include different cultural aspects of Italy. She makes it so much more than just about seeing Italian words on a piece of paper.
Language Trainers: That’s great to hear you and your friend had such a good experience with us. Would you, in turn, recommend Language Trainers?
Luvaghn Brown: Yes, I would recommend Language Trainers and Lia to anyone interested in learning Italian.
Language Trainers: You’ve mentioned your interest in a lot of the different materials Lia uses during your lessons. Before concluding, tell us, is there anything you’ve read — a certain cultural aspect you’ve studied or interesting text—that really sticks in your memory?
Luvaghn Brown: There were several; a poem and slide show about the central square in Bologna, the difference between how Italians use their fingers when counting, a beautiful piece, Il vero anonimo mago, about a UNICEF worker, and a very informative piece about the history of Rome, Roma: un museo all’aperto!
