Oana Mocanu - Personal Language Trainer

I’ve been a professional foreign language trainer and translator for more than 9 years now.

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with people of different backgrounds -in terms of profession, age, culture & nationality- who’ve studied languages with me for a variety of goals – be it to boost their career, get a certificate or feel more comfortable when traveling.

I’ve collaborated with several institutions specialized in Language Training (including the CCI of Angers, France), but in 2016 I decided to start working as a freelancer, which has allowed me to better focus on my clients’ needs.

I love helping people in their quest to study languages while sharing my passion for different cultures. Since I’m not an early multilingual myself – I’ve started studying languages when I was 7 years old – I understand how much effort goes into studying a foreign language but I also know how rewarding and fun it can be. My goal as a trainer is not only to give my clients all the information and tools they need, but also to help them find their inner motivation and start learning in a manner that suits them best.

I’m currently working a lot with adults-most of them students or professionals. This is very rewarding since I receive a lot of constructive feedback and I get to offer them a tailor-made learning experience including the vocabulary they need in their profession or field of study, everyday language practice, cultural information and so on. I love finding the best answer for each person’s needs!

What inspires me

How languages shape the way we think

There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world — and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language — from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian — that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. “The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is,” Boroditsky says. “Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000.”
