Our core principle:
Help the world to communicate.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT:
- Truly local teachers. If you are in LA, one of our teachers is most likely your neighbor. In fact, you probably have friends in common.
- Strømmen is curated and cultivated. We care about our team of linguists and help them to be successful and creative.
- Culture and Slang: This isn’t your High School language class. If you are learning Spanish to use in LA, you probably want a Spanish teacher from LA.
- Fun events like French Movie Night (We rent a space!)
- Hybrid learning (In-person / online) Private classes at your home, at the teacher’s venue (in your neighborhood), or online. Sometimes its nice to meet your teacher for a coffee, other times you can hop on a zoom.
- Strømmen’s dedication to creating free language learning resources (Levels A1-C2) which can be used in class. Including the Strømmen script methodology.
- Small, creative group classes with a focus on conversation. This isn’t a pimsleur tape or duolingo. Languages are about communication, not just reading. With smaller class sizes, you will have more opportunity to speak.
- Focus on Private classes. If you have ever tried a personal trainer for fitness, then you know how motivating 1 on 1 attention can be. Our tutors are great at unlocking your mind and getting you fluent.
- Full Transparancy policy: Our tutors are happy and our business is fully transparent. Our company works with our tutors and has their best interests in mind. Happy teachers = happy students.
Not your high-school language class:
Our tutors create a course that’s perfect for you. As a Strommen student you will learn how to speak, write and read properly, but you will also learn the necessary slang, culture and dialects to truly communicate like a native.
If needed, you can switch teachers and subjects at any time with our private tutoring classes, also reschedule and cancel with 24 hours notice (for most tutors). Use your hours when you want to. You have 12 months to complete your packages, or even longer as long as you request an extension before expiration.
Your Strommen classes aren’t in a boring classroom, rather, you will learn the language in the comfort of your home, office or in a real-world setting. Some tutors also use their home office as a venue for classes. You will enjoy meeting your teacher in unique and often social environments that our tutors choose.

It is part of our mission to provide free language learning resources to the world. Specifically, we feel that developing free ESL resources can provide underserved communities with opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable. Furthermore we feel that promoting communication on a global scale will help make the world a better place with more understanding.
