Meet The Team
Modern Languages Staff
I'm the Head of Modern Languages. I've been in language teaching for 14 years - as an Italian language teacher for 10 years and a Digital Learning Manager for 4 years. My background before this is diverse: I've worked as an actor, an HR consultant, a recruiter and a store manager. I have worked for big companies, Universities and the UK Government. I’m honoured to run the Modern Language division for a such renowned institution and I’m planning to help the students to have a quality and fun experience. Outside of work, I like theatre, cinema, board games, going on my bike and trying new restaurants.
I'm the Chief Executive at The London School of Modern Languages and The London School of English, where I have been working for over 20 years. We are internationally renowned for our English Language teaching, and I'm thrilled to announce our expansion to offer a broader range of languages.
Our Customer Experience Team
Whilst studying at The London School of Modern Languages, you'll have the pleasure of meeting our dedicated Customer Experience team, including Julia, Christina and Mandy. They will be there to introduce you to your trainer, give you a tour of the school (including the free tea and coffee station in the restaurant) and you can always find them at the Welcome Drinks for any questions or concerns.

I am an experienced teacher with over 8 years of experience. I have developed a range of effective teaching skills and methods that prioritise creating a dynamic and diverse learning environment with also the help of music and body language. My approach involves incorporating real-life contexts and treating each learner as an individual. It is my privilege to teach Mandarin at this esteemed institution.

Chiara Moscardin - Italian Trainer
I have worked as teacher and teacher trainer for various institutes and universities over the past 15 years in London and in Italy. I am truly passionate about my hometown Milan and my beautiful country. In my spare time I love reading, walking around London, working out at the gym and practicing yoga as well as travelling, especially around Italy. I love both the mountains and the sea, and my favourite place in Italy is probably Sicily, with its ancient history and gorgeous landscapes.
Yuko Wasowski - Japanese Trainer
Konnichiwa! I've been teaching for over 9 years. I believe that language learning is about immersing yourself in a world of new cultural experiences and practical application of the language. I try to make studying Japanese an enjoyable and relaxing experience, where you learn the language but also gain insights into Japanese culture. I teach practical and natural Japanese to use in real-life situations and help you communicate. I am here to guide you every step of the way. Outside of teaching, I enjoy running, baking, drawing, exploring art galleries, and learning Spanish.
Jane Bergman - Spanish Trainer
I was brought up in Spain and have spent more than half my life in the country. I am qualified teacher with more than 20 years experience. I also have a secret love for Latin America, its people, and diverse cultures, and I visit the region whenever I have the opportunity. Beyond teaching, I am a music lover, a big fan of cinema and literature, and cuisines from around the world.
Rie Saito - Japanese Trainer
I am a qualified teacher and have taught students of all ages and levels, ranging from primary school to adults. I tailor my lessons to suit my students individual needs and learning goals, whether they are complete beginners or higher levels, looking to improve their Japanese for work, or as a hobby. I believe the key to learn and improve new skills efficiently is to find enjoyment in the learning process. I take great pleasure in teaching and helping my students improve their Japanese skills while also introducing them to Japanese culture and customs.
Geoffrey Punter - Italian Trainer
Ciao a tutti! I grew up in Italian-speaking Switzerland, a 15-minute drive from the Italian border, where I discovered my passion for languages and teaching. Over the past 6 years I have taught Italian and English to people of all ages at several schools in southern Switzerland and London. I am also a professional actor. I love cycling (when it doesn't rain) and playing the piano (when it rains).
Our language trainers are highly skilled in the language taught with a minimum of 3 years teaching experience.
