Learning a foreign language is healthy

Another benefit of studying a foreign language is mental stimulation. Many studies show that learning a different language is one of the best exercises for your brain. It can reduce risks of diseases such as Alzheimer.

Teaching since 2004

Variety of materials in class: illustrations, books and magazines. I usually recommend one book for you, depending on your level, reason for learning, fluency and ability to retain.

My classes are dynamic and casual with an intense level of students participation, which helps the student lose their fear of speaking.

Individual or group classes.

Prices vary depending on the distance to your house, the duration of the lesson, and commitment to future lessons. Costs range from $30 to $60 per hour.
