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
keen on trying it out for yourselves just click the link below book your
first lesson and then you'll be given ten dollars of credits to use on your
