About me

Hello, I’m Cecilia Viana. Welcome to Language Nook. I’m an English teacher and translator, a lifelong learner, and a lover of anything minimalist, mindful and hygge.


In 2017 I moved to New Zealand with my husband. Here I became aware of a problem many professional immigrants have / I encountered the reality of many professional immigrants: many cannot work in their profession because their level of English is not enough, so they end up doing jobs that in their home countries they wouldn’t do, leading to a feeling of frustration. Others are able to work in their professions, but cannot climb up the career ladder because of their English.


I created Language Nook as a way to help professionals who emigrated to an English speaking country and want to improve their communication skills in English in order to get a job in their profession, advance in the career ladder and feel more confident in their new country, but cannot, or simply do not want to, commit to a fixed schedule and prefer to study from home.

About the nook

A nook is a small and quiet corner or a sheltered place.

Have you heard of “reading nooks”? They are cozy, peaceful spaces where you can get away from all distractions, relax your mind and body, and enjoy a good book. They are oases that invite you to slow down and make yourself comfortable. ​


This is what Language Nook is meant to be. No pressure, stress, fixed schedules, commuting, paper, or wasted time. The focus is on what matters the most: your motivation and well-being.

I invite you to get in the Language Nook mood: curl up with your laptop, grab a hot beverage and a blanket, light some candles, get comfy and join me. Improving your English can be a truly enjoyable activity, a sacred time you devote to yourself, one that you really look forward to.


Create your nook and start learning.
