Meet the Team

Our Story- 25 years and counting!

     We are a husband and wife team from Canada who have enjoyed 25 years of travel, adventure and learning languages.  We are fluent in Spanish and Swahili, and are currently learning Hindi. We love teaching and are thrilled to help unlock the potential of our students to become skilled language instructors. 

     We have lived and worked in the Dominican Republic, Spain, Russia, Poland and Tanzania. Our work of training language instructors has also taken us to Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, India, Italy, Kenya, Mozambique, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Myanmar, and Romania. Since we have many times been both students of a foreign language and also instructors – we have been able to develop keen insight into the learning experience.

      Experiencing  the  frustration and satisfaction of studying Russian, Spanish and Swahili has given us empathy for the challenges our students face. We are delighted to share the knowledge that we have gained from these experiences with you during your training as you embark on your exciting journey of a language teacher.

Our Credentials

   After 22 years of  experience teaching English, Spanish and other subjects topped up our training with intensive C.E.L.T.A. certification from Cambridge University.  

   Prior to this we spent three years teaching deep-structure English pre-translation text analysis to translators in Warsaw, Poland and St. Petersburg, Russia. We have traveled to 16 countries and been able to train over 1000 language instructors with the same accelerated and dynamic methods you will learn in our one week seminar.

   We are excited to transfer all of this life experience and training to you during our dynamic one-week training course.

Our Commitment To Volunteerism

Six Powerful Words

 “What can I do to help?” Six words that make a difference. Six words that make the world a better place.  Around the planet there are millions of people who dedicate time daily or weekly to helping others in need-free of charge. All of us at the Lexica have spent considerable time volunteering at home and around the world. Check out some of our experiences below.

We appreciate all those who enjoy this work and wish to recognize their contribution by providing a special discount for our 5-day TESOL certification seminar to any of these heroes. For more information contact us directly at
