About Me

Hello, my name is Yacov. I hold both a B.A. degree in International Studies with a minor in French from Nazareth College in the USA and master’s degree in Foreign Regions Studies from the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. Currently, I am teaching English at Kiddy & Junior Classes in Brussels. Teaching languages suits me well since I have spent most of my life in classrooms studying languages and enjoying every second of it. Teaching seems to be the most natural continuation in my language learning process. Classes are tailored to the student's preferences. Otherwise, I design classes around articles and several language textbooks.
My main interests are the study of languages, playing guitar, reading, and especially soccer. Thus, it goes without saying that one my favorite pastimes is wallowing in misery every four years as my beloved Team USA fails at yet another FIFA World Cup. It was while briefly playing soccer semi-professionally in France that my passion for languages awakened. I attended the Collège Internationale de Cannes and became fluent in French within a year. Throughout my formal studies I have continued to cultivate my knowledge of languages, and I am now fluent in English, Spanish, Russian, French, German, and Italian. I also study Dutch and I have some reading comprehension of Hebrew.
