Here is what our students have to say about The Language Garage

The Language Garage did an excellent job setting me up for success in the French language. Through concise course material and one-on-one learning opportunities to extrapolate on the information and pronunciation, my language skills have improved by leaps and bounds. I look forward to working with The Language Garage and Sev ,my teacher, to further my understanding of French in the future. A+, Sev! -Conor, French

Don’t want to deal with gimmicky apps or fussy textbooks? But can’t commit the time to go to an actual class? If you’re anything like me, then Language Garage is the perfect solution. The weekly hour-long lessons with my native Italian instructor means an expert’s guiding and customizing my learning, while the student book and audio files break up daily exercises into fun, bite-sized chunks. I haven’t found this human + online approach anywhere else, and thanks to Language Garage, I feel confident that with enough practice, I can hold my own in Italy, whether it’s chatting with Milanese fashionistas, or ordering truffled tagliatelle in Assisi! -A. Raman, Italian (New York, NY)

I highly recommend The Language Garage for its holistic approach towards language learning. The courses are affordable and student-centered, and the group lessons only include 3-4 students with a live native speaker. An ebook and audio are included with each course so that I can continue learning offline. -Beth W, Spanish

I had many doubts about taking classes online because I’m pretty tradition, and I’m used to going to a school and taking classes in the conventional way. But now I can say that The Language Garage changed my way of thinking and I’m very comfortable taking classes this way. With The Language Garage, I’ve found everything I need to learn a new language, from home, at the most convenient time for me, in the easiest way. I have a very useful student book, which has audios that I can listen at any time to practice on my own. Most importantly I have a teacher who’s super professional, passionate and fun. I’m really enjoying my lessons The Language Garage, and I finally think I’m learning English. Thank you, Chris, for being the best English teacher! -Fanny F, English (New York, NY)

I am now well into the second set of lessons for Spanish, and I can honestly say I'm surprised at how quickly I feel I've been able to learn. The rate of vocabulary introduction feels just right, and my teacher, Ygor, is really focused on ensuring proper grammar, which I suspect isn't always the case when approaching language learning from a primarily conversational lens. Looking forward to continuing my language journey with The Language Garage and Ygor. Take the plunge; you know you want to! -David T, Spanish

I highly recommend learning a language with The Language Garage. It’s a lot of fun to interact with a teacher and a small group of people (rather than with the computer only). The lessons are manageable for the busy adult and the one-hour lesson is easy to fit in one evening a week. -Eve Y, Spanish (Saint Augustine Beach, FL)

I’m a bonafide American monoglot who’d long ago given up on ever penetrating the mysteries of a second language. And when I found myself on the cusp of a trip to France, I figured that actually learning some French would be way off the map for me. But I cast aside my doubts and signed up for French 1 with the Language Garage. I would like to say that my instructor Sev was as good as his word, but in fact he was better. His lessons were non-threatening but still challenging, and he was always sure to meet me in my comfort zone. In between lessons, there was written and audio practice and review, and like so many things, the more I used these, the better things went. But even when life intervened and I didn’t get as much work done between lessons as I’d like, Sev always picked up at just the right place to keep me on track. I am happy to report that I puttered along just fine on my trip to France. The Language Garage not only got me back on the road, but made sure I didn’t turn à droite when I should have turned à gauche. So, whether your language needs involve a simple tune up or a complete overhaul, find your way to the Language Garage, because if they can repair a junker like me, imagine what they can do for you! -Chris M, French

I was only using an app to learn Spanish, but I really missed having a teacher to talk to, so I decided to try The Language Garage. I’ve had three lessons with my teacher Libardo so far, and I love him. He’s patient, he’s nice, he’s funny, and I can tell that he’s got a lot of experience teaching. The student book and audio exercises are great, too. I have my lesson every Monday, and then I have a routine I can stick to on the other days. -Sue W, Spanish (Califon, NJ)

Not only am I learning French, I’m also having a blast with my instructor and the other students in my group. The lessons are low key and not at all intimidating, and I love that I can review and practice everything on my own schedule in between. I’m having a great time. -Linda W, French
