    I have been studying Italian for some time now with Serena, a wonderful native-speaking teacher from Venice. I like everything about the lessons, and my learning is progressing really well! This is my first experience of studying via Skype and I am completely satisfied with it. The timetable is flexible, and the approach is individual. I would recommend it to everyone!

    I have been studying Italian for 8 months. For two of these months I have had the pleasure to study through Skype with a, in my opinion, with a charming, thoughtful teacher – Lara. Before I met Lara, I had two other Italian teachers who, probably, knew the material, but this was not the most important. There wasn't any “life” in the “live” lessons (I would go to the school and speak with the teachers face to face). The lessons followed a template, and already stale program. As I am a more spiritual person, this was not enough. I wanted to communicate in the language I was learning from a more internalized place. I wanted my learning experience to not just follow a scheduled program, but also to bring joy and, most importantly, a desire to continue studying the foreign language I had chosen. And Lara became for me exactly this type of teacher with whom it is pleasant simply to talk, not to mention the fact that studying Italian was enjoyable again. With regards to the school itself, I would recommend this school to everyone I know who would like to study a foreign language. And I'd recommend it not for its prices or its discounts, but for the professionalism of the people.

    I was enrolled for 2 years and a half in the Romanian course provided by Language Life School.
    I really appreciated the format though Skype, very flexible and compatible with my work.
    Yulia Amlinskaya has been always very prompt to answer to my questions and reply to my needs.
    I got 100 lessons with Professor Laura Mason: my level of Romanian at the beginning was zero and now I am able to interact with success with people in Romania where I go very frequently. Laura was an exceptional Professor, always kind, on time, flexible and very prepared. She accompanied me in the discovering of the Romanian language with a very practical approach, teaching me also culture and traditions. This knowledge helped me to have a successful interaction with Romanian people.
    I am very grateful to her and I am happy to recommend her as great teacher and Language Life School as a very professional school.

    I'm really happy with my lessons with Kate. Kate has excellent pronunciation, she loves the English language and teaches it with pleasure. While she allows a lot of time for practising conversation during our lessons, she does not ignore grammar. She always speaks with me in English, which is very important for me. At the same time, Kate speaks Russian well, which can be very useful. Most importantly, she explains things well. I take English lessons twice a week and even after a short period of time I am already noticing results!

    My daughter is seven years old. At the moment we are living in Belarus. In order to help my daughter not forget her second native language and to learn the rules of Greek, I began to look on the internet for a teacher and native speaker of Greek so as to take lessons through Skype. I was not yet certain, at that point, about this form of study. We had concerns about how our child would receive information through the camera, how she would react to a remote teacher during the lesson, and how the teacher would themselves be...

    Fate granted us the opportunity to get to know Amalia. Our first conversation satisfied me, but I still had doubts with regards to how my daughter would receive information through Skype. I was pleasantly surprised to find that lessons through Skype can give such great results. My daughter really loves her lessons with Amalia, and she even does her homework happily! From the third lesson, I left my daughter to her lesson with Amalia without fears.

    Amalia is a very considerate teacher and she is able to find a common language with children and deliver the material in an interesting way. She teaches with love and she is strict, but is always smiling. We even became friends, and we are looking forward to meeting in Greece when we go on vacation to see my husband!

    It is really interesting to take lessons with Amalia! I have taken in three lessons in all and I already feel that my knowledge level has gone up. I like her teaching method, as she provides conversational speech and also teaches correct pronunciation, allowing me to already better understand Greek films and songs. I have searched for a long time for a teacher with whom it would be this comfortable to take lessons. I gave myself the goal of learning Greek, and with her, I am sure I will achieve this goal.

    Chiara is a remarkable young woman and a wonderful teacher! Lessons with her take place in a relaxed atmosphere and the material is easy to take in. Everything is forgotten as you become fully immersed in the atmosphere of this beautiful country and language! It is truly effective! The conversations on various topics and the interesting exercises are a real plus. Detailed study of grammar is handled with apparent ease. I admire the fact that at the same time as she is teaching the lesson through Skype, Chiara manages to write down in chat the phrases said by the student, correcting their mistakes. Later, after the lesson is over, you can open the chat history and study the material in which you made mistakes. It's unbelievable how much it helps! I recommend her to anyone who is interested in raising the level of their Italian, and in particular the level of the conversational language. After a lesson with Chiara is over, you are in a great mood, with a smile on your face and a desire to speak Italian! Grazie mille, Chiara! Sei super 😉

    What makes a good teacher? For me, it is a person who genuinely loves his or her work and approaches it with enthusiasm; someone who, by their own passion for their subject, can motivate others to study; someone who can explain things well, and to whom students can always turn with their problems. There are many clever people who converse in a complex way. Steve is not one of those people; he makes English interesting, and he motivates you to more thoroughly understand the language.

    I thank God for giving me such an excellent teacher as Maria who, as well as being highly professional, is honest, patient, kind, and caring – qualities that are today, sadly, all too rare. I would recommend Maria to everyone, both as a teacher and as a person!

    I’ve been studying English by Skype with Clare for about a month now. After every lesson, she gives me homework, and we discuss the homework in the next lesson; we also discuss various topics. Clare is an educated and well-rounded person, and I can talk about any topic with her. I consider these lessons very effective in that they help to overcome psychological barriers and develop one’s language skill. I notice that I’ve already begun to say certain phrases and expressions without thinking about the translation.

    We started studying French as total beginners; it was also our first experience of studying via Skype. We had a few misgivings, but the fact is that if you have a high speed internet connection, it’s just the same as private lessons with lots of advantages. We don’t have to spend time travelling to classes, and we can study anywhere, even when travelling. Lessons are easy-going and pleasant, and we look forward to each lesson. We listen to recordings, do exercises, and receive all necessary documents by email. Marie is a good teacher, and the lessons go by quickly and are interesting. She shows attention to detail, which is very important for beginners. The materials, too, are very well chosen.

    As far as the work of the school itself is concerned, everything is done very efficiently: we corresponded with Yulia; she chose a teacher for us; we transferred the money, and right away began our studies.

    Alexandra was my teacher for two years. She is simply wonderful! She really understands that each student needs an individual approach as everyone learns in their own way. Alexandra is a teacher in the straightforward sense of this word: she is dedicated to her students; she brings great enthusiasm to her work, and she has a great sense of humour!

    Good day. I have been studying with Amalia for several months now. My interest in Greek is related to the fact that for half of the year I live and work on the island of Crete. My work does not require a knowledge of Greek (when needed I use English), but I wanted to begin studying Greek in order to become further immersed in this country that I love. When I began to look for a teacher on the internet, I saw many ads offering Greek lessons, but all the teachers were Russians who had lived for years in Greece, and my goal was to find a native speaker. For this reason I was very happy when I found Amalia. She knows several foreign languages, among them Russian. She doesn't speak Russian perfectly (in my view this is, in principle, impossible), but she has enough of a command of the language that I can easily understand her. Lessons with her are very entertaining, she selects materials for each lesson carefully, and always prepares interesting exercises. I don't perceive my lessons with her as work or study. For me, it is a way to relax, a hobby. I am pleasantly and, most importantly, usefully passing my time. I think that a large role is played here, not only by Amalia's professional but also her human qualities. She is a very pleasant, gentle, and kind person, and she is always calm when explaining the material to me several times if I don't understand something. If you want learning a foreign language to not be hard work, but for it to be a pass-time from which you derive pleasure and that you look forward to with impatience, then I recommend studying with Amalia. The first lesson is free, so you can always refuse further lessons. But personally, it didn't even enter my head to refuse. After the trial lesson I immediately registered for the next lesson.

    I am studying Chinese at the University of Turin (Italy) and with Geng through Skype. Thanks to Geng, my level in Chinese has quickly grown. Geng has a huge amount of materials and exercises for Chinese grammar and vocabulary, and she selects individual homework for each student depending on their needs. In addition, Geng is a very pleasant person, and her lessons pass in an entertaining way. If you need help learning Chinese, get in touch with Geng!

    There is a wide selection of Italian teachers in Moscow, but despite this, for a long time I was unable to find a real professional amongst the native speakers. Everyone knows that much depends on your guide in the interesting world of foreign languages, the person who will strengthen your desire to delve into the most complicated grammatical peculiarities and will help you enrich your speech with beautiful and correct turns of phrase. How I've gotten lucky! After two years of studying my favourite language at different centres I took up individual lessons with Chiara! She speaks Russian fluently and can therefore understand the mistakes her students make due to their native language. I have always been very pleased with the variety in materials (she provides not only textbooks, but also newspaper articles, audio, and video) which she uses in the lessons with detailed explanations of the subtleties of the Italian language. Already I have begun to feel notice significant progress! After Chiara left Russia, I decided to continue studying with her, namely in order to prepare for the CELI exam, but through Skype. Lessons are, as before, intensive, entertaining, but with an emphasis on writing, review of various subjects, retelling situations and practising pronunciation. Working with Chiara I really appreciate how she responds quickly to all my questions and difficulties that arise in my individual work, how she carefully checks, corrects, and elaborates upon the written texts, and during our lessons points out my mistakes to me. I am happy to recommend this energetic, sensitive teacher who cares about the success or failure of her students, to those who value the quality of the learning process and are aiming towards achieving a certain result!

    I really enjoyed both learning a language by Skype, and having this teacher (Maria)! You don’t need to spend lots of time on it; you study and practise with a native speaker, and always at a time that is convenient for you. It’s great! I recommend it, and encourage you to try it!

    I am very happy with my Italian lessons with Lara. Lara is professional and knows exactly how to convey the material that we are using in the lesson. Lara makes each lesson interesting and engaging. What I particularly like about Lara is her friendly and dynamic personality and her strong wish to teach and advance, step by step, my level of Italian in each lesson.
