How We Got Started

Our Story

Founder Irma Cedeno is a linguist, educator, and cultural competency strategist who’s passionate about language learning. She worked as a language teacher around the world and an Adjunct Professor.

Irma has an insatiatble passion for languages and is fluent in multiple languages herself. Having worked in variety of settings and identifying the shortcoming of language learning apps and their empty promises, she started Diáfano to address those issues.

From the very beginning, the mission of Diáfano has been to elevate and support each student’s maximum potential for language mastery in a fun, interactive, and culturally-competent way. She wanted to ensure that each teacher is an expert in both the art and science of language learning and has a spirit of ingenuity. 

Diáfano has since served over 2,000 students and dozens of world-renowned institutions. We are committed to our clients’ long-term goals, so we are in it for the long haul.
