Explorative Language Lessons to Open Your Mind to the World

- 1 hour language journey!

WHAT ARE LANGUAGE JOURNEYS?

I transport you down rabbit holes of cultural quirks, mystical tales, memorable conversations, and teachable moments.
As we go, I help you develop a natural accent and speech style that works for you, so you can find your unique voice and expression in this new language.

Above all, I connect you to new parts of the world and bring you closer to the people you are learning to communicate with. Together, we can bridge cultural gaps, and find compassion and understanding in the beautiful global community of today.

– Spanish, French, English (ESL), Brazilian Portuguese, & basic Chinese Mandarin.
– A variety of resources, stories, activities, & games
– I accommodate your skills, progress, interests, & learning styles.

Katrina is a delight to learn from and spend time with. She hosted our lesson in her lovely back yard, was patient and kind and encouraging, while giv...ing me lots of resources and information to continue with between now and when we have another lesson.
