Ciao! My name is Sona. My native language is Armenian, my first foreign language is Italian, but I am fluent in English, in Russian and in Spanish too. I lived in China for 1 year and I had to learn a little Chinese as well :) Currently I live in Tallinn, Estonia, and I started learning Estonian.
Learning a foreign language is my hobby. I agree, it is not an easy activity. It requires a lot of dedication and motivation. However, I am sure I am not the only person who’s doing it for fun. Let me be honest, the only thing I can assure you is that it WILL definitely be fun and rewarding to speak a new language. And I am here to teach you Italian.
Sona has been such an amazing instructor for me. I'm marrying into an Armenian family and want to feel confident speaking with members of the family. Sona took the time to understand my motivation in learning and came up with an approach that would get me speaking/reading right away. I'm even going to be able to address our guests in Armenian at our wedding.
Learning a new language as an adult can be really intimidating but Sona keeps it from being daunting. She has a method for teaching writing, grammar, and the alphabet that is really approachable. She is also very personable and it's clear she cares a lot about her students and their success. I look forward to our session every week! Thank you so much Sona!
Sona is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and does an excellent job explaining the language. Learning with her has been a great deal of fun. She’s very friendly and flexible; she will work around your schedule no problem.
I have been taking private Armenian classes with Sona for 6 months. She is a knowledgeable, experienced, and extremely talented instructor who is able to convey difficult concepts to her students (over the internet, which is not easy to do), beginning with basics and building up from there. I have studied Armenian before but never with much success. This time is different: Sona is such an experienced language educator that she continues to work with me on the knowledge and skills I need to read, write, and speak Armenian, so that for the first time I have access to a language that my family lost with my grandparents' passing. Sona is passionate about keeping the Armenian language alive and she is interested in the unique stories of her students; my weekly lessons with her are truly the highlight of my week.
I can just start off by saying that Sona is such a sweet, caring, understanding teacher shes so clever and very structured in her teachings. I like that we’ve been able to form a friendship and i hope one day i can fly out to Armenia and officially meet each other!! If you want some one who loves what they do and is patient Sona Jan is the one!!!
I have been taking on-line lessons from Sona for almost 2 years. She's an excellent teacher - knowledgable, patient, and flexible. She is a native Armenian speaker who speaks a few other languages so is very well prepared to teach practical vocabulary and conversational material as well as more complex grammatical structures. She has been happy to adapt to my interests, strengths, and weaknesses as a learner. I always look forward to my lesson!
Sona has known my family for 5 years, and taught Armenian to both myself and at the time my 10 year old daughter. Her ability to adapt to the generational differences in teaching, plus understanding the linguistic differences between Eastern and Western Armenian helped preparing us for speaking with our compatriots in the current Republic of Armenia.
Sona taught my daughter Armenian language classes via Skype and was amazing! She is very patient and creative in her teaching methods! It never felt like there were over a thousand miles between she and my girl!
I highly recommend Sona to teach a child, adult, family or group of professionals! Each person would learn at an amazing rate!
Sona has proven herself to be a great teacher. She has done this over and over again. I have known Sona for 12 years, and
have met some of her students. They all hold her in the highest regard. She is passionate and devoted, patient, and makes learning fun, which is how you will be your best with her as your teacher.
