I speak five languages - Spanish, Haitian Creole, English, French, and Brazilian Portuguese - and I understand the frustration that comes with trying to learn a new language.
Growing up, I had a strong urge to learn English because we would often have visitors from The US. I so badly wanted to be able to converse with them and felt so frustrated that I couldn’t. I took matters into my own hands and decided to take an English class, but after a few months of learning, I told myself English wasn’t for me and that it was an impossible journey so I quit.
Then, later on, I was given an English-Spanish dictionary, and my desire to learn English fully reignited. Through trial and error, I was able to develop methods that were enjoyable and worked for me. After successfully learning English, I developed a passion for learning world languages.
Learning new languages has allowed me to make meaningful and powerful connections with people from different countries I never thought possible. I’ve had the opportunity to interpret for many organizations and groups, which also led to meeting new people. It has afforded me the unique opportunity to learn about different cultures, read and comprehend books in the original languages that I speak, and give speeches in different languages.
I knew I could do so much more…
When I saw people struggle, fail, or shut down out of fear of learning a new language I started to question why they weren’t able to learn a new language like me and so many other multilinguals and polyglots have. It was then that I started to reflect on my experience.
I attended countless conferences about language learning, and second language acquisition and also researched and read literature about language learning and second language acquisition. I watched countless interviews of polyglots. I held many many seminars and also coached and taught countless people. Through my research, and experience in language coaching, I realized that the number one reason people are not successful at learning world languages is because of their limiting beliefs. They are simply not using methods that work for them and lack consistency. Just because a method worked for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you.
As a nurse with Spanish-speaking patients and a passion for traveling, I had been wanting to learn Spanish for years but didn't know where to start. That's when I heard about Lingcata and was introduced to Michael, my coach and teacher. With his engaging teaching style and encouragement, I went from knowing only a few words to being able to successfully communicate with locals during my recent trip to Costa Rica. Michael's coaching has been immensely helpful and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled and fun Spanish Teacher.

I had the pleasure of meeting Michael several years ago. Last year during remote learning when I realized my son needed help with his Spanish class, I knew exactly who to contact. Michael’s patience and diligence would be key to my son’s success. Throughout the tutoring sessions, he provided consistent communication and progress updates. Thanks to Michael’s multilingual fluency, our son made great strides and was prepared to move to a higher-level course. I would recommend working with him to learn a new language or to improve your current skills.
Before Michael, I was trying to learn Haitian Creole on my own through the little resources available, and it was almost impossible to find credible resources for the Haitian Creole language. I was learning, but without Michael, I wasn't able to understand the way Haitian people think, and there was no context to the words and phrases I was learning.
After doing sessions with Michael, I realized it was crucial to understand how to learn a language, and practicing my speaking with him has been so beneficial to my Haitian Creole. I can confidently say he has helped me learn things that I would have never learned on my own. Mèsi anpil (thank you very much), Michael!

Your coaching sessions have helped me a lot. You have helped me develop my speaking skills and gain confidence in myself and not be afraid to make mistakes when I am learning. In one of our sessions, you said that listening is the key skill required to become a good communicator: I will never forget that. You have taught me that I don't need to wait for perfection to use what I learn and have fun with it.
Thanks to the methods you gave me, I have learned how to learn and also how to apply what I learn effectively. Thank you for helping me!
