The worst thing to do when learning a language is to be hesitant to speak. I've had students who whisper, or only give one word answers to questions. I understand how hard it is to learn a language. When I moved to Russia for a year, the first few months I avoided situations in which I'd have to speak in front of people or ask people for help in stores. I felt judged and nervous. However, the more times I was forced to speak, the more I realized no one was judging me! I found people were all happy I was trying to speak Russian. They didn't care about my incorrect grammar or heavy accent. They were just interested to meet me and learn about why I was learning their language. This made me more confident and inspired me to speak even more. The best way to improve is to not hesitate, and just speak as often as you can.

For those learning English I want to say- do not worry! All native English speakers have a lot of experience speaking with non-native speakers! Two of my closest friends are from Turkey and Hungary. They have accents, but they are not afraid to speak, loudly and often!

I find here in America we are very interested in people's backgrounds and respect the effort it takes to learn English. Americans are happy to help with any language issues, for we all have immigrant friends and most of us are learning another language ourselves!

Hi everyone! My name is Liya and I am a native New Yorker. Want to learn how to speak like a student at my university? Need to practice listening to English for school, work, or a social setting? Want help editing your English papers? I specialize in speaking and listening practice, along with editing of documents. We will have stimulating free or structured conversations so you get used to hearing, and speaking to a native English speaker and make you sound fluent to any native English speaker regardless of country. I hope to have clear and helpful lessons ranging from basic vocabulary, to slang, idioms and nuances of the language that is hard to pick up simply from a book. We will develop a lesson plan together that is completely personalized. Hopefully you like how this sounds! I am a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was a Russian Language and Literature major. I've lived in Switzerland and Russia which has helped me learn some French, Russian and German. I spent last year in Moscow teaching English to refugee children, mainly from Afghanistan and the Middle East. I would love to help you - regardless of your level. Because of my experience learning Russian, French and German I understand how stressful and time consuming it can be to learn a new language. I am here to help you improve with patience and understanding! Увидимся) See you soon!
