I have had the privilege of working with Defense Linguistics on various contracts such as German, Arabic, Persian/Farsi, Japanese, Indonesian, Hindi, French etc etc ... off and on for the past 4 years. I believe on behalf of Marines and myself, it is an honor to write a letter of recommendation for the director of this school, Ms.Amiri. My relationship with her has been one of mutual professional respect. My role as the Command Language Program Manager has been the impetus for the relationship, but the partnership exists because of a deep level of trust and respect. We both love teaching others about new languages and have a passion of watching them grow in it.
I have hared many good things about Defends Linguistics' tutors from bigger language centers such as Berlitz, DLS, DLI, Ad Astra....
Over the period of instruction D.Linguistics tutors were a vital part of the growth of our linguist Dep. here at Marine Base. During a four-year span, I had the pleasure of working with and observing the attitudes of this particular school. They are very professional and knowledgeable native speakers who love to teach. All the curriculum comes from the director, Ms.Amiri who is very organize and easy to follow. Ms. Amiri and her tutors engage the student with a sense of purpose and make everyone feel at ease. Defense Linguistics's tutors have passion for their work as well as a very strong will to win which lead many students raising their test scores at our base.
D.linguistics ( former name; School of Persia,LLC) gets contracts once or twice a years here MCIA sometime between May-Oct as one to one or group session. The levels of instruction is a mix of Beginners to Advanced.
I have no reservations in strongly recommending any of school's tutors, specially Ms. Amiri herself for Persian/ Farsi as a future professional partner. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information regarding D.Linguistics.
