What Are Language Journeys?

I transport you down rabbit holes of cultural quirks, mystical tales, memorable conversations, and teachable moments.

As we go, I help you develop a natural accent and speech style that works for you, so you can find your unique voice and expression in this new language.

Above all, I connect you to new parts of the world and bring you closer to the people you are learning to communicate with. Together, we can bridge cultural gaps and find understanding within the global community of today.

Testimonials

ENGLISH LANGUAGE JOURNEYS

As a French person living in Calgary, Katrina has helped me improve my English skills, especially my pronunciation.

 

The lessons are far from boring! She adapts to my needs and my preferences, which wouldn’t be the case in a school.

 

She is also a wonderful person who is patient, understanding, and always smiling. She helped me build up a lot of confidence in my English.

 

I look forward to each of our lessons. She was the teacher I was looking for.

SPANISH LANGUAGE JOURNEYS

Katrina is a bright, caring, and engaging teacher whose thoughtful approach to language learning makes all the difference.

 

She puts in the work behind the scenes to make sure she comes to your session with a learning plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. Plus she knows how to motivate her students and make every session fun!

 
I would recommend Katrina to anyone who wishes to learn a new language or build on past skills. Gracias Katrina!

CHINESE LANGUAGE JOURNEYS

I’ve taken Mandarin classes with Katrina (beginner level) for nearly half a year and had such an amazing time learning from her.

 

Not only was she super motivated to teach me new things (including tricks to remember all the details), but also I had so much fun going through all the languages we have in common.

 

At the end of the day, if I wasn’t able to understand the meaning of a word, we would find a way to get it explained in English, Spanish, French or Portuguese…

 

I totally recommend Katrina if you want to take your language skills to the next level! Thank you very much, Katrina! 谢谢

PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE JOURNEYS

Katrina really helped me improve my level of Portuguese. The fact the she speaks many different languages was helpful as we could make links with other languages I know and help me understand concepts better.

ENGLISH & CHINESE LANGUAGE JOURNEYS

My 9-year-old and I took English and Chinese lessons with Katrina and we call her ‘the amazing teacher’. She is full of good ideas, very friendly and my son loves her!

 

I strongly recommend her to anybody who wants to learn in the best way.

 

She also gave us some tips that helped us handwrite faster and more clearly…. AMAZING!!
