"Welcome in your Language Journey! Congratulations!

I will guide you and make you feel at ease.” 

There is nothing more exciting than speaking a new language and it is also intimidating. The possibilities are endlless when you learn another language and it opens your world to a global community.

I will guide you patiently and teach you not only the language and grammar but also its culture, gastronomy and its fun facts.

My mission is to get you to fluency faster, boosting your native-like pronunication as well as confidence to understand and to speak.

I have developed a Modern Approach that empowered a lot of Professionals like you that needed to improve their skills either for travels, work, relationships, or well-being.

I am fron Lyon, France. I lived and worked in different countries, and I speak 5 languages. I have worked for Berlitz, Language Institutes and taught Art in Mexico for 3 years.

Unlike other schools, I teach the Modern French, the one that is currently used in Paris. My students feel refreshed and happier after their class as I take great care in every course I teach. I am a true advocate of the French Joy of Life.

My objective is that your reach the level you feel comfortable with and for that I created lots of fun quizzes and cultural discoveries.  

Get in touch today so I can help you get to the next level and engage in your new journey!

Talk soon!

MISS ANDREA 

Spanish - Advanced

Just in time, when I graduated as a translator, I had the opportunity to embark on a big adventure that would change my life.

An artistic journey led me to the discovery of a world beyond my wildest dreams. 

New fantastical places and people took root in my soul and were instrumental in helping me conjure up my dream of creating a career as a singer and performer.

The journey extended for a few years. I had the chance to explore and enjoy Latin America’s colors, the northern landscapes, the majestic and imposing European architecture, the delicious gastronomy with its traditional recipes, and the magic of every country I visited. I fell in love with each of their peculiarities.

The language and cultural content I could only read about at college finally came to reality and became a treasure I own in my heart.

I learned that we all have collective feelings and thoughts.

 Language is the powerful force between ourselves and a new transforming experience of connecting with a global community. 

I invite YOU to get you closer to the rich and endless culture of the Hispanic world.

MISS SHANNON

Italian - Beginner and Intermediate
English - Beginner, intermediate, and advanced

Il brutto e bello. The ugly and beautiful. There is no perfect place. Every town, state, country or culture simultaneously holds both the ugly and the beautiful. After living for 12 years in Tuscany, I have come to see that often these two opposite aspects of a place are part of the same. For example, the sometimes painfully slow process of getting things done in Italy (il brutto) because government offices work half days or appointments can only be made between a two hour time frame in the afternoon 3 days out of the week, etc, etc, feels like something to complain about, but once you understand the motivation for this, which is the Italian’s love and respect for family and free time, you come to respect and appreciate these realities and see it as good (il bello).
While I may not have impeccable grammar, I have come to love the language and culture of my new home and I am passionate about sharing both the brutto and bello with you in fun and educative ways.
Cominciamo! Let’s get started!
Shannon Askay Vannucci is a native from California, a lover of language and cultures and a life long student of both. She teaches yoga as well and is a passionate surfer.

BEN 

English - Master Pronunciation Coach

I’ve lived in 5 countries, and I know what it feels like to not be able to say and do what I want. Do you feel like you are limited in your opportunities and happiness? Nobody should feel this way.
For over a decade, I’ve been building, testing, and applying my own methods, backing them up with studies in linguistics at Canada’s top university. Today, I speak 5 languages fluently.
The process I teach is quite simple, and can be broken down into a few easy steps:
1- Become deeply aware of your mouth.
2- Re-train it to sound like a native speaker.
3- Master what’s important to YOU.
It really is that simple.

My mission is to make the world a closer, more connected place, where language is what brings people together, rather than what separates us.
My goal is to give you all the tools you need to speak clearly and confidently, and naturally, as quickly as possible, so that instead of spending the rest of your life taking English classes, you can finally enjoy it.
If you’re a busy person who realizes how important it is to speak English confidently and clearly, you’re not happy with what you sound like in English, and you want to improve quickly, book a free
consultation session with me, and we’ll see how I can help you.
