Learn a language, Connect to the world, Familiarise with your roots
Who we are
Language Connect by the Shondas - LCS School offers language courses by means of video conferencing.
It is a business partnership based in the UK and co-founded by Osoko Fredy & Deborah Shonda.
It comprises individual lessons of European & African languages.
African languages are key to our offering, starting with Swahili and Lingala. We provide courses of African languages to virtual groups of 4 students to both adults and children.
Our aim is to foster the learning of the African culture through the learning of languages. We also consider it a safeguarding of our cultural heritage. We believe that Africans and African descendants need to develop their knowledge of their own languages.
Also individual lessons of European languages i.e. French, English, Spanish and German with the aim to:
➦ Provide the basics knowledge of the language
➦ Facilitate professional development
➦ Provide the skills required for business activities
➦ Provide student mentoring
Courses are delivered via video conferencing so there are no geographical restrictions to people willing to enrol. Moreover, we adapt to all levels from beginners to advanced.
For all languages, teachers ensure a significant level of interaction whilst combining a variety of course materials.

Fantastic, personalised 1 to 1 French lessons. Encouraging but patient teaching has improved the rate at which I understand new concepts. I look forward to continuing my journey in French.
