for your name Charlie.. aha okay "My name is Charlie" (in Japanese)

(corrects Charlie) But like disappeared a little bit disappeared like a finish

to finish this like .. ahh okay so maybe the Japanese schwa? Haha yes!

My name is Charlie. Mmm great!

Can I ask you your age? Yeah you can I'm 28. 28 OK in Japanese say Im 28 old

is.. "I am 28 years old" (in Japanese). Mmm great! And how could I say

your first lesson of Japanese your lesson was brilliant yeah thank you!

How do I say goodbye? Sayonara! Sayonara.. sayonara!

Yeah? Thank you so much, sayonara! Thank you so much, Celine! See you soon! Sayonara!

Charlie these these two lessons I feel a bit stupid it's hard

work yeah it is yes especially when you know zero of

the language yeah it feels a bit stupid doesn't it? It's overwhelming it is stupid of us

to do it like this, isn't it? Because you would prepare a bit at least a bit yeah. So maybe

next lesson we do one that we know a little bit of

That's a good idea. You know Spanish very well so what's a language what's

a language that you know a little bit of well I have actually taken a couple

of Italian lessons with my student well my old student Paola she's been giving me

some lessons so. Paola from the immersion course?

Yeah Paola froimn the immersion course. She's been doing a fantastic job as well and I would love an Italian lesson

okay all right I've booked you an Italian

lesson then. Well lovely thank you thank you what about you what shall I book for you? You

like Spanish and you have you have some lessons in Spanish sometimes I think

that would be a good one I'm still very basic so it it would suit me okay let's

do that Spanish and Italian, let's do it!

Any particular country nationality who you are looking for? um South American

Spanish is what I've been learning. Not gracias (spanish C), more gracias (Latino C)

okay and any specific Italian Italian or Italian yeah it's got a be Italian

Found a lovely lady, Charlie, from Venezuela. Her name is Ines and I think she's a great

teacher for you. Nice so South American, Spanish, brilliant!

I'm gonna book her for you right now, Brilliant!

all right? all right? How was that? Ahhh!

I had a good time I had a good time as well, it was interesting

I definitely have a favorite lesson. Go on. Yeah my Japanese lesson yeah that was

really fun yeah what did you learn in Japanese? A lot, loads. Allora!

You were listening to my Italian lesson, clearly.

She was a good teacher? she's really good and that was really weird because she didn't have that many

students so this is an interesting point there are community teachers there's

professional teachers but sometimes you're gonna find those that are just

starting out and you get them at a really good time because they're

passionate about the thing that they're doing and they're really cheap yeah she

seemed like she was really she loved her job and was good at it

mmm I know and made me feel good about it that's really important yeah yeah and

then your other teacher so he had even less experience than that and his classes

were really really cheap and he was a community teacher and you weren't

incredibly impressed but I think they're the wrong type of classes to take if

you've got really low level right or a complete beginner level , would you say?

Once you've got a conversation level then that is a good option. Yeah that's such a good point yeah so

right from the start you might want someone who knows exactly what they are

doing to not waste anyone's time and then once you've got a bit more fluency

you can get just a language exchange or a teacher that is very affordable

exactly did you did you have fun today I think I fell in love oh my so I had a

Mandarin lesson okay Clara okay and living in America doing her master's and she

was a great teacher very patient very enthusiastic and fun and it was just

really nice had a really nice soft softly spoken voice and she was just

really nice I kind of loved her. So great platform we had a really good time and now if you are
