Who we are

We are a group of passionate and determined educators, by profession and at heart. We have come together with a single thought in mind: to make a difference to children’s lives by empowering them with the languages of their future.

We are the Coaches. We are the most important people in this academy.

Our mission is crucial as we make a big impact on little people’s future. We are men and we are women. Our names are Abbie, Abby, Sunny, Yanni, Tina, Carmen, Luxia, Xiaoyu, Rebecca and Aleksandra, David, Rick and many more! We cover all time zones. We have studied and we have been trained and retrained. We wake up with a mission, we learn every day and we coach every day. We love the children we teach. Their progress is our reward.

I am Ludivine HAMY, I am the Head of Marketing, Communications and PR.

I was born in the south of France (Montpellier) but I was blessed to spend a part of my childhood in Italy (Rome) where I learnt to speak Italian and discovered the Italian culture. My studies in Politics and Literature brought me from Paris to Brussels (Belgium) and Florence (Italy).

I have been working for more than 12 years in Communications and Marketing for different major international companies in Paris, Geneva and Singapore. I have always loved studying and working with people from different nationalities and backgrounds, as it opens your mind so much and gives you an insight into the world’s complexity and richness.

I am also a happy mother of 4 who are currently learning English and Chinese at school and thanks to VivaLing. I am fully convinced that speaking more languages gives you such an incredible asset for your future life, both personal and professional. Today, thanks to Vivaling, children can learn a language with fun using new technologies: this is a real revolution. I am happy to be part of it!

I am Abbie ADEYERI, I am the Head of Learning.

I was born in Ohio, U.S.A., and have known I wanted to be a teacher since my first day of school! With this mission in mind, I studied in the U.S.A. and Australia to achieve a Masters of Education in TESOL and have taught in four different countries to students from all over the world.

I love teaching because it combines my passions for learning, meeting people from diverse backgrounds, and impacting future generations. I love language because it makes all of these possible! I have studied Spanish, Hungarian, and Yoruba, and am always still learning. I am married to my favorite travel partner and together we have visited four continents and counting.

After teaching for seven years, my love for what I do has only grown. VivaLing has introduced me to amazing children from across the globe and to the endless opportunities of online teaching. I hope that every child we teach can use language to open their minds to new ways of thinking, open their hearts to friendships with everyone, and open their opportunities for travel and education to include the world at large. I know it is possible because it has done the same for me!

I am WANG Zihan, I am the Head of Operations.

Born and raised in Mainland China, I studied abroad in Singapore, France, Japan and Canada from the age of 16 as a winner of both the Full Scholarship by the Singapore Ministry of Education and the Excellence Scholarship by the French government.

I am a dynamic culture explorer and linguistic addict. I currently speak English, French, Mandarin and Japanese, and am still learning. Learning languages is fun and rewarding to me, as each new language is the key to a brand-new wonderful culture. The different languages took me to more than 30 countries even before I reached my 25th birthday.

The journey of language learning has been shaping and polishing my personality, open-mindedness and confidence. 
My dream is to empower more and more kids to unleash their full potential from their early years and embrace a bright, boundless future.

I am Bernard GOLSTEIN, I am the CEO.

Born in Sweden with family roots in Eastern Europe and North Africa, I was the fortunate recipient of a classic French education.

French by passport, proudly married to a South-African musician and father of two India-born multilingual kids. I speak French and English, and have had significant exposure to many other languages and linguistic fields. I wrote a Turkish grammar book in another life. I also took to Hindi while living in India – at which point I clearly understood the challenges of adult language learning.

I put an end to a successful corporate career 20 years to the day after it began. I had dreamt of VivaLing with a clear and compelling vision: to change kids’ lives by making high-quality language education widely available; and to contribute in the long-term to language sciences. 
I feel blessed with VivaLing. There is nothing I enjoy more than its human, cultural and linguistic diversity, and its mission.
