“Listen & Learn’s teaching approach is a flexible and impactful way to study a language”
Paul Jones, CEO of a Digital Media and Publishing Company, started with Listen & Learn's German course 12 month ago to. This is what he has to say about the experience:
LL: Good day, Paul! It’s great to talk to you about your experience with Listen & Learn. For the benefit of our readers, which language course did you choose and why
PJ: I started to learn German in the first few years of secondary school, but I did not continue my studies and have always considered learning the language to be one of the things that I should resume; it left a hole in my heart. So, I am delighted to have continued after such a long time.
LL: Good for you! I think a lot of people who studied languages at school often wish they would go back to them. And why Listen & Learn?
PJ: A few reasons: the ease of starting a course because the staff sort everything out; the one-on-one teaching; and, particularly in these times, the option to take the class either in-person or remotely.
LL: What is your favorite thing about studying with Listen & Learn?
PJ: My teacher Julia!
LL: Is there anything that has particularly helped you with your studies? Something your teacher or coordinator have provided or encouraged, for instance?
PJ: Being able to proceed at my own pace.
LL: And what would you say has been especially rewarding as an outcome of your hard work?
PJ: Understanding a lot more about the language. It’s great to not just speak the language, but to understand the culture behind it.
LL: Have you had any opportunities to use your new skills in the workplace?
PJ: Sometimes yes, although I am still in that mindset where I understand more than I am confident enough to say. That will change with time, though!
LL: Do you think other professionals should enroll in a course with Listen & Learn?
PJ: Absolutely! Listen & Learn’s teaching approach is a flexible and impactful way to study a language.
