Luli Thomai

Albanian Language Tutor

A qualified Albanian and English teacher with 25 years of experience, who is able to effectively communicate with students from diverse cultural, educational backgrounds or varying degrees of ability. A committed and dedicated professional with a proven ability to teach, motivate, and direct students to maximum performance by encouraging a positive and energetic environment. Fully conversant with the English National Curriculum, Albanian Language Standards, and experience of exploiting technology in the classroom or up to date online apps, to make the most of the learning experience.

I`ve been teaching the Albanian language to all levels of students, from beginners` to advanced. I mostly teach conversational, every day Albanian combined with some very important grammar tips. I make use of some very good textbooks from the Department of Albanian Language in the Tirana University, but also I am well on the way of publishing my own textbook and exercise book on conversational Albanian. I prefer one on one classes, but I also run courses with 3 students, max.
I have a good command of English and Italian, these two languages help me a lot in explaining very easily to my students all the grammar challenges the Albanian language has, by using the comparative way as a very effective one for the language acquisition.

I have been studying with Luli for a little over 3 months and am very pleased with the progression of our lessons. She takes the time to explain the grammatical “why” which I find very helpful and I also really enjoy the snippets of Albanian life and culture thrown into our lessons. I wholeheartedly recommend Luli to anyone considering learning this challenging and beautiful language!

Luli’s knowledge of Albanian and English grammar is exceptional. She is able to explain Albanian grammar and how it relates to the English grammar, which has been a huge help for me in learning the language.

She is kind and thoughtful and very accommodating. I’ve taken lessons with her both while living in the US and Albania.

I have been studying Albanian with Luli for almost a year now. She is a great teacher and she knows the Albanian language inside and out! She adapts the lessons to match the learning style of her students.

The grammar is very complex but Luli truly understands and can explain it in a way that makes sense. She’s the best!

Luli is very accommodating with her schedule. For almost two years when I lived in the states I took classes during the day or evening.

I also chose to learn Albanian by studying poetry first. And in the process I learned a lot about the history and culture of the country.

I highly recommend working with Luli!
