Roc Riggio, a nationally competitive high school baseball player loved his experience with LanguageBird.
“LanguageBird is the best! My instructor Carlos made the class sessions fun and kept me on track giving me the confidence to complete my classes. Taking both Spanish, I and II at my pace with one on one instruction was the key to my success.”
Jayme Riggio, Roc’s Father, has this to say about the program.
“Dr. Koven and the staff at Language Bird have been amazing. My son is a high school age student-athlete who plays baseball for Team USA and travels both domestically and internationally year-round. They have given him the one on one instruction he needed to master his foreign language and succeed. Their staff has bent over backward to meet my son’s travel and playing schedule. In the standard classroom setting, my son was falling behind and getting lost. Thank you, LanguageBird.”
