FlashSticks review by Amanda

Meet Amanda, a Language Lover, a Mum & Blogger

Amanda is a language graduate, mum to one, and blogger. Her love of languages began in secondary school, where she was able to learn multiple foreign languages as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Now that she is a mother, she is passionate about giving her son the same opportunity to explore foreign languages and cultures while he is young. She blogs about the way she is doing this, and how the whole family benefits from it (including her own rusty skills!)

FlashSticks review by Shannon Kennedy

Luana Lerro
Learn Italian With Me

Luana talks about FlashSticks

Meet Luana Lerro. An Italian, a teacher, a true seeker.

Having traveled and lived in many countries, her deep connection with her roots have always taken her back to Italy, where she now teaches with an incredible passion and love for the Italian language and culture.  She’s not far into this new adventure, but we have a feeling that she will do brilliantly and any student would be very lucky to have her as their teacher.
