    Program Description

    The lessons structure I use varies depending on the students’ needs and ability. My aim is to always adapt my lessons to meet the students’ need and ability. My initial first lesson with a new student is primarily conversational (unless the lessons sought are on reading and writing) in order to gauge the student’s current language skill. I base my future lessons on the initial assessment.
    My lessons plans range from novice/non-speaker to experienced/advanced. Novice student with little or no Amharic language skills begin their language training by first learning what I call “Amharic for Travelers.” It consists of basic lessons on greetings, asking directions, numbers and vocabulary building exercises. From there students advance into "Beginners Amharic" and start learning more about grammar and sentence structure and work on building their understanding of verb conjugation, vocabulary building so they can more effectively use the vocabulary they are building. For more advanced/intermediate students who already have rudimentary Amharic skills we delve right in and focus on more complex grammar and sentence structure.
    Those wishing to learn to read Amharic are introduced to the script as early as possible and being by memorizing the fidel (the Amharic alphabet). My lessons for reading and writing are adapted from the classroom styles used to help 1st and 2nd grade native speakers learn the script.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    My hourly rates are as follows:

    For beginners (little or no current knowledge but desire to develop into advanced levels) costs are $30-$45, the cost is highers if the student wants to learn the reading and writing at the same time.

    For more advanced/intermediate students who have rudimentary language skills I have lessons in grammar and sentence structure at $35-$50/hr, again price depends on whether writing/reading instructions are included

    Reading/writing for beginners who want to learn the Amharic alphabet(reading but already have strong speaking skills and a good vocabulary $45-$50.

    Additionally, I offer simple conversation practice lessons for students who are fairly familiar with the language but need regular practice to develop and keep up with their Amharic skill.
