When I needed to brush up on my Mandarin after many years, I went to ABC Languages, whose owner literally wrote the textbook on learning Chinese. I highly recommend this school!
When my 82 year mother in law wanted to revisit her high-school Spanish, ABC languages connected us with David from Colombia to do weekly Zoom lessons. The match between student and teacher was perfect. David was patient and fun and had my mother in law laughing and speaking in no time. She is really enjoying her lessons!
Not only are the teachers top-notch, fun and flexible, but the director of the school knows her stuff when it comes to helping bicultural families who want to teach their kids a heritage language. She advised my family when my husband wanted to learn Brazilian Portuguese before our wedding in Brazil, and later with our daughter’s journey in the language. I’ve sent other mixed culture families there, and everyone agrees that it’s no ordinary language school. Really amazing that it’s not expensive!
Hell yeah! I’m taking Korean class for beginners here because I decided it’s time I needed to brush up on my Korean. I know how to speak and understand I would say – professional working proficiency. Writing and grammar is just what I needed help on most. And decided after simultaneously looking at various YouTube vids and browsing online for charts, guides, etc. I wanted to go physically in person to a class where I can learn and interact better therefore if I have any thoughts or questions it can be better approached and answered (loved my experience).
My daughter takes Russian classes with Natasha and we are very happy with the way classes are structured. Natasha brings interesting age appropriate material including songs and poems to classes making classes a lot of fun. Natasha and everyone at school are always on time and very responsive. Thank you, ABC languages!
I’ve been taking Japanese classes with Maki-sensei for almost 9 months now and she is a great teacher. I’m a heritage learner so there are specific things I especially need to work on and she’s been very helpful. She’s gone above and beyond what I’d expect from a teacher! The staff at ABC are also great, very responsive and accommodating. Since March the classes have been online and ABC helped make the transition smooth.
I took an excellent beginner Spanish class with Danica Radeka. I loved the participation factor of the class. You had to do your homework and be involved in the discussions to add value to the class and to develop your personal learning. Danica was an enthusiastic and patient teacher who pushed you to do well and advance your language skills. I highly recommend taking Spanish with ABC Languages.
