TORKOMADA, Inc. offers group and private language classes in Spanish, French, Italian, German, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, Bulgarian, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and many more. Our fabulous language teachers stay away from the stereotypical "talk-and-chalk" approach. Unlike most veteran language schools in the United States, TORKOMADA, Inc. offers a unique approach and methodology: our language classes expose students to various cultural aspects of the host country-music, food, history, and dance as a fun and creative way to learn and practice the language. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of each level.
Here is what students say about our teachers:
"Torkom is the best thing after sliced bread!"
"I love my class! I'm actually learning Arabic, which seems impossible; mainly because Torkom is awesome: very clear, thorough, and precise. He is patient and goes out of his way. In class we are focused, and don't take breaks, which I like. Time is valuable! Torkom is great and I love Torkomada! Thanks so much!"
"Torkom is an absolutely wonderful teacher. I took a beginning Arabic class before and retained very little information. He is helpful and resourceful. A friend of mine who speaks the Arabic language fluently was impressed at my learning rate in Torkom's class. I will definitely be returning for Level 2."
"The Arabic class is a very good class, and I'm learning much more than I would have on my own. I'm glad I took it."
"After taking Torkom's Arabic level one class, I started texting in Arabic with my family in order to practice. Although I make some spelling mistakes, for the most part I'm already getting better. My family's responses were great! They were so surprised. Thanks for giving me the confidence! Your class is awesome."
"Love my Spanish teacher and the class. I highly recommend this class to anyone."
"Torkom makes it fun. He calls on everyone so it's very interactive."
"I really love the teacher. He's great, and my class mates are great too."
"My Spanish teacher is great."
"The teacher is always very well prepared, enthusiastic about the language, and knows how to cover the right material."
"The instructor is excited about Arabic, and languages in general, and does his best to encourage us while understanding that it is a challenging language to learn."
"He explains things well and uses the right mix of English and Arabic. He is very focused and is talented as a teacher, not just as a speaker of Arabic. He pushes us just the right amount and is encouraging. He's also super nice."
"Torkom is a great professor! He's fluent in Modern Standard Arabic (Fusha) among other languages and has tons of patience :). Be sure to request him for a class!"
"Knowledge of subject matter. Keeping the pace of the class moving forward. Lesson plans are challenging but comprehensive."
"The Spanish teacher knows many languages and can relate them to each other. He is also a very nice person and answers all questions with a lot of patience."
"Very friendly and kind. Torkom is excellent in teaching the basics of Arabic. He understands students' perspectives and difficulties in encountering a completely foreign language. He is organized and always covers all necessary materials for the day."
"The professor gives examples of colloquialisms and other phrases that are useful in basic day to day conversations."
"I'm enjoying the class and Torkom's teaching style. Arabic level two is a good refresher for me. My experience booking through Torkomada and all customer service has been great."
"Thanks for a great class! Torkom, you are a stellar stellar teacher!"
"You guys are great."
"This is my first class with Torkomada and I'm very happy so far with my class, the pace and my teacher."
