Basic Thai, Daily life conversation, Thai for workplace, Reading and Writing Thai literature
I believe that everyone has a personalized learning style, so I love to explore your interest, your goals first and then adjust it to my teaching approaches and learning activities. I really love to see learners’ confidence and progression. We will make the lessons fun and productive. Basically, the lesson will be started with basic Thai, daily life conversation and topics in society will be discussed and included in the lessons, Slang, or some Thai words will be discussed based on the learner asking for and we will expand it. The lesson will be focused on using the Thai language naturally as well. Moreover, I used to work for both public and private sectors so, for those who need to learn the Thai language and culture in the workplace/business, I can support you in these parts. I look forward to seeing you. Let’s learn and exchange our languages and cultures. See you!

Tanya
Spanish with a polyglot (8 languages) and Professional teacher, language coach
Hi! I'm Tanya. I was born in Italy, but for the last two years of my life I have traveled the world, mainly in Central and South America and the Middle East, traveling and working remotely. In my life I have lived in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. I am a professional teacher with 6 years of experience. I worked on the translation of medical and legal articles, panels in the glass museum in Venice and worked as an interpreter at the court of Venice. I have a degree in languages, certified in international law and a language coach. Language coach means that I not only teach you a language, but also how to learn new languages! I will closely monitor and monitor your entire learning journey, to get the most out of your skills! That's because I love learning new languages! That's why after years of studying I became a polyglot (8 languages - Italian, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Dutch) and I came up with a method to teach you the language you want to learn! Over the years I have learned to model my work according to the personal needs of each student and have developed a method that allows my students to learn the language in a fast and fun way. My hobby is my greatest passion is learning other languages, therefore from my experience I can understand many of the problems associated with learning a foreign language. I am also a language coach, which means that my lessons are based on a specific method that I have designed to facilitate and accelerate learning. My classes are available in Italian, English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Dutch and Arabic. GROUP LESSONS possible! See you soon! :-)

Diana
Italiaans alle niveaus - kinderen, tieners en volwassenen
Italiaans is mijn moedertaal. Met veel passie wil ik de prachtige Italiaanse taal aanleren volgens je behoeften. Heb je nodig van een ondersteuning voor je studie op school… voor je privé- en beroepsleven? Heeft je kind nodig van hulp bij het maken van het huiswerk? Dat kan allemaal aangeboden worden in een gemoedelijke sfeer bij mij of bij je huis, maar het kan ook online. Ik werk op een natuurlijke manier, en uit de eerste les bent je in staat eenvoudige zinnen te spreken. Als algemene regel geef ik mijn lessen in het Italiaans, zodat je vanaf het begin een effectieve ‘full immersion’ krijgt (ondersteuningstalen zoals Nederlands, Engels of Frans, worden gebruikt als het absoluut noodzakelijk is). Ik leer je hoe de Italiaanse grammatica werkt en hoe je het best een gesprek uitvoert met een native speaker. Ik leer je de taal die tegenwoordig in Italië wordt gesproken door leuke en interactieve lessen.

Private Spanish classes with an experienced native teacher
Do you want to learn Spanish? Whatever your goal is (travel, Leaving Certificate, work ...) together we will achieve it. My name is Javier, and I am a young native Spanish teacher, but with the best training (graduated in Hispanic Philology and Master in teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language) and years of experience, both face-to-face and online. I always try to make my classes as individualized as possible, preparing materials specifically for you, and which are also dynamic and interesting.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact me! Cheers!

Gemma
Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.
