TALAERA |tā-lē-ra|

Talaera comes from Icelandic, one of the most difficult languages in the world. Tala means “speak” and Læra means “learn”. We aspire to make even the most challenging language journeys easier for you.

Our story

Talaera was born after German founder Anita tried to improve her English pronunciation and Irish founder Mel attempted to learn German.

After many misunderstandings and missed opportunities working with international teams, they recognized that the global marketplace sorely needed flexible, accessible English training for professionals to communicate in the real world.

Our team

Our team is made up of passionate humans with eclectic backgrounds, former Microsoft managers, TV producers, HR directors, IT engineers, and writers who now want to share their knowledge and experience with other professionals.
