About This Class
Hola, bonjour, olá, hallo and ciao!
I’m Kieran and I’m a language tutor based in the UK, and I also create online courses and write books to make language learning accessible to all.
My books and online courses are based on the methodology I developed for teaching languages, which I've been using in all my classes for many years. The methodology will get you speaking quickly, without the struggle normally associated with language learning.
I’ll not bore you with my life story or intricate details of the history of the methodology; I know you probably just want to start learning now, so I’ll let you get on with it.
Actually, I’ve changed my mind, I will bore you a little before we start. It’s my biography! I’ll keep it as brief as I can though.
I’ve been tutoring people for over ten years on a one-to-one basis in a range of subjects. I love languages, I love learning and I love teaching. I also love chocolate, but this isn’t really the place to discuss my chocoholism. I’m very lucky that I get to teach people every day. However, I can’t fit everybody who asks me into my schedule so, regrettably, I end up turning a lot of people away. I wish I could teach the whole world but I’m yet to figure out a way of duplicating myself!
The next best thing is to teach through the medium of an online course. So, that’s what I’ve decided to do. If you've enrolled onto one of my courses, then I will soon be teaching you the glorious splendour of whichever language you've chosen, be it French, Spanish, German, Italian or Portuguese.
Anyway, I'll stop blathering on in a minute and we'll get started with learning. But, firstly, let me just say this...
No, I'm joking, of course, let me say this instead...
We are all human beings, which means we all possess the attributes that make us human beings. There's a wonderful quote by a man called Terence:
“I am human, and nothing that is human is alien to me”
What it means is that if one person is capable of something, then we are all capable of it, because we’re all humans too. There's nothing in the world that I cannot understand if somebody before me has succeeded in understanding it. Therefore, it’s only logical that since there are millions of people in the world who have managed to learn to speak a second language, then you can learn it too! And I'll show you how...
