Welcome! My name is Martin Norling. I’m the founder of, and CEO at, Language Online Services (LOS).
Do you communicate across cultures?
Are you responsible for running an international team?
Is the Lingua Franca you use with your colleagues a challenge sometimes?
"I was surprised by how quickly I got back my Spanish, and as the year went on we focussed on more specific areas such as pronunciation and areas of Spanish that English speakers have difficulty in."
"I feel I am growing in confidence and ability with each lesson – sometimes small steps, other times those ‘aha’ moments! I am so grateful for what LOS offers."
"Working with Martin Norling is invaluable to me, not only in terms of progressing my language skills, but also as a kind of coaching relationship that stimulates my critical thinking."
"I like having lessons with Rory Mulvihill because he is very passionate in helping people, he loves teaching, he is able to connect to people with empathy. Our lessons are always fun and effective, I learned so many new words and how to communicate in a simple way what I have in mind."
"Some months ago I started taking English classes with LOS to improve my negotiation skills and spoken business English. After a short while I realized that Martin Norling was helpful in more than one way, so I involved him as an advisor when writing the final report for a EU-funded project."
"I was lucky to have Skype sessions with Anne Weston as a part of my preparation for teaching Microeconomics in English. Anne easily identifies areas where improvement is needed what, besides other things, can be attributed to her extraordinary attention to detail. In combination with deep insight into cultural differences in ways of thinking, her accurate recognition of students’ needs creates a highly effective learning environment."
"I was pretty hesitant about the pricing levels to begin with given the usual Central European rates. But, I have to say, I think LOS has an excellent format. Really enjoying my Czech lessons with Misa Loos and I will keep on with it. The fact that it is quite late in the evenings suits me as I have a chance to rest from the day’s mayhem before starting. Plus the technology in the screenshots and other gizmos work very well, more compact but also more convenient than conventional teaching."
