He has several creative methods to help me learn: pictures, games and assignments that help me to practice using the language. I think this is the best way to learn a language if you need to use it.  I am so thankful that a friend, who also used it, recommended "Listen and Learn"!"

Greek Testimonials

"Lessons are going well and I think that I am advancing considering that I only restarted real studying two weeks ago when I returned from holiday. I can write with ease and reading is getting better; short words are fine but the longer ones take a moment or so. Greek is not easy in the sense that every word is a new word for me although fortunately I can make associations with meanings because of all of the greek derived words in the medical lexicon. Konstantina is very helpful and a very nice person."
William McCallum - Greek course in Houston.

"I’ve just begun my classes and all is going well! Tina is a very good teacher, and I feel confident that I will get back on track with Greek, even though I have to refresh a little now."

"I'm very happy with the course. The content is interesting and the pace is as fast as I can handle. The course will definitely provide me with a firm foundation in Greek to pursue my studies."

Hebrew Testimonials

"Yossi is an excellent teacher. I am learning so much. Great match! He is a fantastic teacher!     Here are some of his strengths: 1) He intuitively knows how much to push me to improve without making it overwhelming -- that is a teaching skill that is rare 2) He makes the learning fun and his materials are easy to understand 3) His system reinforces what I've mastered while introducing new vocabulary and concepts. There is an optimal balance of new material and review.  Each lesson builds on the last 4) He sends me voice recordings and texts between sessions that are very helpful 5) He takes the time to tell me interesting little things like why you break up two yuds next to each other  6) He is very organized! 7) He motivates me! I am already very excited about this topic -- but wanting to do well for my teacher adds that extra oomph!   I'm sure I missed a dozen other things I like. He is a very skilled teacher! I look forward to our lessons. I would highly recommend him if you have other students.  "

Julia Gauchman - Italian course in Chicago.

"I am writing this email to express my gratitude and satisfaction for the Italian lessons I had with Stefania Fenocchio last year. She is a fantastic teacher, knowledgeable and nice, patient and polite, always focused, and very attentive to the needs of a student. In only 40 hours of very intensive and information-packed lessons she managed to equip me with a good initial base of the language, allowing me to continue this challenging journey on my own. I have created my own study plan since the course completion, and will continue studying regularly, because I truly enjoy the process thanks to my wonderful teacher Stefania. In addition to basic language grammar and structure I have learned many valuable facts about Italian culture which I find very useful for my work and future travels to Italy. I wish Mrs. Fenocchio and all the teachers’ pool of Listen & Learn to continue providing such a high level of teaching other languages and cultures to the other students."

"My lessons with my tutor Jason are great! He is a very good teacher."

"I am proud to say that our group, including myself, is fully satisfied with the Mandarin Chinese course so far. Jing’s teaching style is very helpful. She provides us with notes, PowerPoint slides, examples, and book lessons while explaining each concept with practice in-class. Jing is also very helpful for out-of-class questions. She makes herself available by email or phone to clear up any confusion. Jing voice records each class lesson so if needed she will drop box the recording to each of us afterwards which is helpful when studying. The speed and content is also excellent. At first, we moved too quickly but adjusted the in-class learning/speaking speed when appropriate."
Patrick Mittelstadt - Mandarin Chinese course in Virginia Beach, Swimways Corp.
