Kim did a very good job. The last few days were intensive, but this was exactly what I expected. She pointed out my weakness and she was patient enough to improve my speaking skills as well.
I received a course book and several different websites to find more information and exercises. She was flexible and committed to help me. Compliments to her! After this training I am challenged to continue studying!"

Denise OHalloran - Finnish course in Cork, EMC Information Systems International.
"Finnish lessons are awesome! I have had 5 classes now and I'm actually going to Helsinki on Saturday to put it to the test! My teacher is excellent. She talks to me only in Finnish and I was worried at the start that it would be too much (as I was a total beginner), but right from the first lesson I felt like I was learning so much. Her teaching style is excellent - there is lots of repetition & recapping to make sure the knowledge is sticking. She always comes really prepared with games, exercises and a solid plan for what we are going to achieve. She obviously puts in a lot of effort to make the lessons work. There's a good mix of vocabulary, grammar, listening, speaking and writing practice. The way the lessons are so flexible is ideal for me - I had always been put off joining a class in the past because I cannot guarantee I can be in the same place at the same time every week (I manage a very large restaurant & bar & so my schedule is always changing) so the fact that I can change the time of a lesson is just perfect. Being able to teach someone another language is a precious skill and I wholeheartedly believe that this course is an excellent investment, that hopefully I will benefit from for years to come. I have never learned a language like this before, but the one-on-one tutoring and the obvious extra time that goes into preparing and structuring a lesson plan is undoubtedly great value for money."

Polina arrives with full lessons planned, all of which are very structured. She has a really good teaching style and is very patient – the lessons are very flexible."

Miguel Lacerda - Hebrew course in London, Pastor, Victory Youth Group UK.
"I found the Hebrew lessons fantastic, and Tommer was really good at telling me not just the 'correct way' but also the 'street smart way'; the way people actually talk. These lessons really helped me particularly because Tommer taught about the sorts of situations I might find myself in (restaurants, buses, taxis etc.) and he told me applicable words for these situations.
He also worked out that I learn things really well via songs and was quite good at adjusting the lessons. It was hard and I still don't know everything, but I'm very glad I did it. it has helped me a lot. I discovered that rhetorical questions are a very Israeli thing; it did confuse me to bigin with but after a few sessions I got the hang on it. "
Claire Wood - Hebrew course in Bristol.
"I am getting on very well with Gil. While there is a course structure if the lessons require it we step away from it for a while to discuss politics or history or whatever topic arises other than the more formal lesson structure. One of the last lessons was to bring Gil up to date on Irish history, making me search for words and verb forms in order to do so, listen to his questions and make logical replies. This is actually what I wanted to get from the course: to listen and use the language. I chose Listen & Learn after some wandering around on the Internet looking for some form of study that might be available in Ireland. Out on the Western Edge of Europe it isn't always possible to get what is needed.
I was beginning to think only some form of long distance teaching would be all that was available which wouldn't really have been what I needed or wanted. With the internet I can download "speaking books", buy the book in case I have trouble with the speaking element and of course download songs, order CDs and get podcasts. Nothing would match actually sitting with someone who could correct mistakes as they occur or suggest other ways of learning and interacting with you on an individual basis to get you to stretch your use of the language in a purely conversational way. I was surprised that Listen & Learn would be able to source a Hebrew teacher for me in Ireland and was resigned to the idea that this might not be possible.
There are a lot of Israelis here (the two countries are among the top countries for IT equipment and development) but that doesn't mean that there are good teachers. From talking to Gil about family life it is clear that he comes from a good pedigree of teachers which is a considerable bonus. "
Richard Godfrey - Hebrew course in Dublin.
"Learning Hindi with my teacher has been really productive and I am even beginning to write - exciting times! Thank you, Listen & Learn! "

Vincent Roumiguieres - Japanese course in Crawley.

Andrew Manasse - Korean course in Sheffield.
"I have absolutely no complaints regarding my Korean lessons and I am happy about them. The teacher is flexible and understanding. There has been a few last minute changes on my end a few times and my teacher agreed to change or cancel our class which is very cool of her. She is also pretty much always smiling, patient and understanding. She is good at adapting her explanations to my skill level in simple ways that I can understand, which is quite important for me. Being a native Korean and having taught other people in the past shows that she knows her stuff as she relays the information quite well. She is always punctual and overall very professional. I needed someone that I get along with, that is easy going, and a nice and smiling person. She is pretty much all of that. "

"Lessons are going really well thank you. We feel that Graziely has a good idea of how we both learn and is really helpful and patient. We are managing to get to grips with lots of vocabulary as well as familiarising ourselves with hearing Portugese being spoken.
She takes great trouble to highlight the differences between the Portugese spoken in Portugal and that spoken in Brazil to make sure we are learning the correct pronunciation etc. Our lessons are both fun and challenging which I think is a good combination!"

"We had our final lesson last week and I feel I have made some good progress and have achieved my goal. I went away for a long weekend in September to Sweden with my elderly mother (who is Swedish and suffers from early dementia so sometimes she forgets to speak English and speaks Swedish instead) and I managed to understand her and speak Swedish with her! The lessons I've had with Aviva have enormously helped me and set me up with a good basic understanding of the language. I also seem to have dredged up words and phrases from my childhood whilst I spent the holidays in Sweden with my family. "
