عني

Hello Verbling students! I am a certified teacher of English as a foreign language and I love teaching American English! I'm also a self-taught Spanish speaker so I understand the challenges of learning a new language as an adult. Let's chat! Send me a message or book a trial class with me so I can find out exactly what you need to take the next step on the road to fluency. Have a great day and I'll see you in class!

Привет из Америки! Меня зовут Луис и я носитель языка из красивого города Остин (штат Техас). Я самостоятельно учу испанский язык, и это позволяет мне отлично понимать особенности изучения новых языков от лица студента. Очень важно оставаться расслабленным и получать удовольствие, погружаясь в языковую среду, и наслаждаться процессом! Разговорный уровень - это не цель, которую можно достичь в определенный день, иногда вы будете делать два шага вперед и один назад. Это нормально. Просто продолжайте двигаться вперед, и у вас все получится!

(Many thanks to my friend Max for the Russian part of my profile.)

دروسي التجريبية

Unless you specifically request something else, this is what we will do in our 30 minute trial lesson. 1. Chat briefly so I can analyze your accent and level. 2. Do a quick pronunciation exercise specific to your native language. 3. Describe a photo so I can check out your vocabulary. 4. I will give you an analysis of your English level, accent, intonation and how to move forward with improving all of that, whether it's with me or another teacher. Best of luck on your journey to fluency!
