What Our Clients Say

“This program is better than others because you can learn fast. For people like myself, who only have a short time to learn, it is the best place to study. Cincilingua uses the most modern technology. Cincinnati is a city where people speak very good English.”

—Carlos Jimenez, Camara de Diputados, Mexico

“Thank you for the opportunity to join the great professional staff at Cincilingua in my endeavor to improve my skills using the English language.

The final report enclosed in your email was as personalized as all other instructions and care I received during the two-week course.

It is great that I still have a lot of work to do, because it is another excuse to go to Cincilingua in the future.

Sandra’s kindness over the phone was a really nice and pleasant beginning. I would like to thank my teachers for their efforts. Especially Mr. M. Sum for his dedication to get the best from me in the short period of time I spent there. Also I want to thanks to Ms. P. Ross for her emphasis in grammar. One session experience with Mr. Neil Hunt was quite enjoyable and productive. I will remember Mr. James Duval for his enthusiasm during the lunchtime. Mr. Alfonso Barnes was great and I am very grateful because his willingness to help at any time. I am very thankful to Angela Gibson for her support in smile mode all the time.

In summary I can say that I am extremely satisfied with this course and now I am doing very fine…sorry, I mean I am doing very well!”

—Carlos A. Sariol Curbelo, M.D., MS, Director, Unit of Comparative Medicine Virology Laboratory, CPRC UPR School of Medecine, Puerto Rico

“It is not only about learning, but a life and cultural experience.

I spent 7 weeks in Cincinnati, so I had the chance to meet several of Cincilingua's students. Several times I asked them about their teachers and I received only one answer, they were great. Not only because they are good teaching English, it is also because they are intelligent and interesting people, so you are doing a great job selecting them.

Your system is also fantasticthe one on one lessons helps to build a "custom made" program for each student.

Your staff is fantastic—always ready to solve any students concerns and small problems, not only related with the program, also with the hotel and personal topics. By the way, Mrs. Collet is part of my good experience, always smiling and ready to receive us in the morning.

My teachers were the best part, they are intelligent, well prepared and with extraordinary knowledge about culture, history, economy, etc. I will always consider them as my personal friends.”

—Domingo Soto, Director de Proyectos Financieros, Coppel, S.A. de C.V., Mexico

“I am very proud of my selection of CINCILINGUA early this year to help me improve my English skills. I think this was the best choice I could have made, since I had such a wonderful time there not only learning English but, “living the language” too.

I want to specially thank my teachers: Ruth, Thea and Mike. I have learned a lot from of all them; I enjoyed my classes too. Talking about a lot of things helped me a lot to improve my conversational skills as well as my listening skills. Their professionalism, knowledge of English and the methodology they used was key to my learning process.

I want to thank also Angela and Alfonso for always being willing to help me, as was Mme Collet. Let’s not forget about Sandra and Mr. Collet who helped me a lot at the beginning when I was planning my trip. I do want to thank the teachers I spent lunch time and tours with: Ellie, Chris, Gill, James, Steve, Jim, Donna, Jeffrey, (I hope I am not forgetting one of those wonderful people).

It was nice meeting people from other countries and visiting different places in Cincinnati, as well as having a warm place to return at nights: The Millennium hotel (lol!)

Rest assured that I will tell about you here in my country, to all my friends and colleagues interested in learning English since you have the right combination of teachers, methodology and staff people. And you have thought in advance about all those details that the students will require living outside their countries, so they can have it all set and be focused only in learning English.

Thanks again, I truly believe that big dreams are made of small achievements, and this for me, was another achieved goal. It will take some more effort to get to the level of proficiency I want to achieve, but this was really a great improvement.”

—Allan Angulo Gastelbondo, Ecopetrol, Colombia

“Being those two weeks in Cincinnati, OH was a great experience and it really helped me on improving my English skills, killing some fears and giving me more confidence on speaking and using my knowledge of this language.

By the way, I wish to recommend this school. It's amazing the method they use, very serious and determined. I definitely think it could be an excellent opportunity for our executives to use as a way to improve, polish, gain more confidence on their English skills.”

—Sergio Morilo Rodriguez, TOTVS, Mexico

“My wish is to return to Cincilingua because, in my opinion, it is the best English program in order to learn the language. Since my family (I have two little kids) and work/business do not let me take a long course out of my country, Cincilingua's method is perfect to obtain quick progress in a short time.

I have had the opportunity to take several courses in other USA and Canadian institutes, but not one gave me the result that I achieved when I was in Cincilingua. As you remember, I have been in Cincilingua two times and I have also recommended the institute to some of my clients.”

—Saida Quintero, Quintero y Quintero Asesores, Colombia

“First of all I’d like to thank you because this week at your school was a very special opportunity for me to learn not only English, I really knew very interesting people and places in the beautiful city of Cincinnati. The school is excellent, the teachers are all very well trained, and the program was awesome.

I am so happy to see my report, that I will use in my organization like a tool for future positions available or promotion related to the healthcare market.

I want to mention you Ruth, to me was my best teacher because I really learned from her experience and culture, and she helped me a lot. Don was a great teacher too.

In general my experience was very positive and I am very thankful.”

—Dashira Martinez, Hospital General de la Plaza de Salud, Dominican Republic

“My stay at Cincinnati, as well as the language training, have been a positively outstanding experience I'd recommend to everyone. 'Language Immersion' combined with the one-on-one approach of Cincilingua is probably the most effective way to learn a language, both for students at square one and for people wanting to improve their foreign language skills and vocabulary. Also, I really enjoyed the city of Cincinnati during the morning, lunch and afternoon breaks, and after class. There are so many places to visit, safe and clean streets, a perfect balance of old and modern buildings, the beauty of the river, the parks, the bridges and all those pubs and restaurants on the riverside.”

—Rodolfo A. Bordenave, General Motors, Argentina

“The Cincilingua method, learning at your own pace and understanding as you proceed, is very effective. This approach, combined with the personal attention of the instructor, makes it possible for the student to learn a great deal in a short time. As to the instructors, I found them to be uniformly excellent. The patience and good humor of all of the instructors was a real boost to me!”

—Charles B. Hookway, Kellogg Company

“I enjoyed my time at Cincilingua. I was able to clarify key concepts and I'm feeling more comfortable speaking English. In my opinion, Cincilingua has a good method for improving your English.”

—Gloria Viviana Landinez, Sales Manager, Animal Health Division, Eli Lilly Inc, Colombia

“I am positive that the instruction I received and the confidence that I have gained in German language skills, has given me the basis for expanding my capabilities as I assume my new position in the Zexel GmbH office, and my new life in Germany. The school is modern and efficient, and the flair and warmth of Cincinnati provides an excellent 'backdrop.' Of course, a school is more than just books and a building. [My instructors] were quickly able to tailor their instruction style to match my learning speed and skill. While continually challenged, I never felt completely lost from the material, and I believe that this allowed me to gain the maximum possible benefit from the course.”

—John F. Maggioncalda, Zexel GmbH

“My English has significantly improved in a very short time in difficult areas: listening, speaking, writing and reading. I also appreciate that my course was specially structured in order to achieve the goals that I asked for. The supporting materials were first-class. For instance the books, videos and software used during the course focused on my needs. The activities organized by the school were also incredible. Those activities gave me the possibility to know more about Cincinnati and talk over different themes during the visits with the teachers and other students. The visits to the Court House, the Zoo and the Cincinnati Art Museum enriched my vocabulary. I am sure that these 3 weeks have been invaluable for my personal and business activities. I feel much more confident in speaking English specifically with financial vocabulary, and I am able to do it in a fluent manner, understanding oral conversations with native English speakers that usually use idiomatic expressions.”

—Miguel Pellat, Elek, Moreno Valle y Asociados, Mexico

“The system you are using to teach English is effective and at the same time pleasant, since you give students the flexibility to adapt classes to their necessity and mood. Cincinnati is also ideal due to the minimal opportunity to speak the native language. The structure of the city is probably one of the greatest advantages for students, because it offers all the principal characteristics of a 'big city' as well as its quiet environment and the courtesy of its citizens as in a small town.”

—Oscar Diesel, Citibank, Paraguay

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the entire team at Cincilingua for doing such a great job helping General Motors employees and their families to learn new languages prior to their overseas assignments. We appreciate your attention to quality.”

—James K. Fisher, General Motors Corporation

“I felt you gave me preferential treatment, up to the point that it seemed like I was the only student you had during those three weeks.”

—Gaspar Aguirre, Estudio Beccar Varela, Argentina

“The quality of the teachers, the outstanding organization, the environment of cordiality and the comfortable building of the academy, contributed to significantly improve my knowledge of the English language and at the same time to enjoy a pleasant stay.”

—Dr. César Coronel, Coronel&Perez, Ecuador

“We recently had two Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) translated into French for shipments to France and Canada. This is just a note to let you know how pleased we were with Cincilingua’s work. Our MSDS was translated into French and our MSDS form was also reproduced in French, which was very professional looking. Your staff was also very knowledgeable, knowing that there was a difference in the reporting requirements between the Canadian and French authorities. On our behalf, please accept this letter as recognition and appreciation of Cincilingua's excellent and professional work.”

—Fern Gessford, Procter & Gamble

“Thank you for all of the work Cincilingua put in on short notice. The meeting with our French partner went extremely well, they spoke little if any English, and were very impressed with the quality of the translation. Please express my appreciation to your team!”

—Steven Bosking, Director of Marketing, Lil' Drug Store Products Inc.

“Having finished my experience in Cincilingua, I would like send my greetings to everybody. My four weeks were really wonderful, very well lived, in a quiet and friendly city, which offers interesting sports, many cultural options and some nice places to visit.

Since my first day with you, I met excellent people, always ready to show me the best way to resolve any unexpected need and tell me how take advantage of every situation. Alfonso and Angela are an efficient team. They were able of give me convenient suggestions and concrete answers every time that I asked them about something.

I am absolutely satisfied with my teachers. All of them encouraged me to reach my objectives, because they knew perfectly what I was trying to improve. We spoke about topics selected according to my profession, using materials with relevant value, as previously discussed. Some interesting lectures were combined with videos, in order to practice listening, reading and speaking abilities, with emphasis on what I really needed. So, it is my pleasure to express my admiration for Katy, who was my teacher during my first two days, and for Ruth and Kevin, who were my morning and afternoon teachers, respectively, for the rest of my course. I enjoyed every one of my lessons a lot, and I think I learned so much in a short time with them, because they are simply great teachers and better people.

Now, after four weeks, I can confirm the high quality of your method. I was able to practice my English with more than 12 different teachers. In fact, in my lunch times and in my Saturday specials tours I joined Maryann, Fern, David, Brown, Sandra, Patricia, Brandon, Beverly, Donna, Michael, Drew and Sue. Additionally, in the mornings, before class, or in our break times, and also in the afternoons, when the lessons were over, I very frequently met other Cincilingua teachers and spent some minutes with them speaking in English.

Finally, Cincilingua is an institute in which you can see the director and the owner every day. I met Mrs. Collet and I spoke with her frequently. She was interested in knowing about how I was feeling and how Cincilingua could help me.

Now, I have excellent books and materials, and I try to do some exercises every week, read English lectures no less than twenty minutes per day, watch English TVs programs, and practice with English speakers every time that I can.

Thank you so much for everything. I hope see you again as soon as possible, probably in a new experience with you.”

—Paolo Longo, Venezuela
