Magda, Poland, 2013Really enjoyed the course. I became more aware of the mistakes I make and self-correct more often. I am able to distinguish different vowels better. The teacher was really knowledgable and patient.
Yan, China, 2013
I have improved a lot. Especially on joining, schwa, consonants, and many others. I learnt the skills listed in the text book, and of course some very practical knowledge.
Adamu, Nigeria, 2013
The course has thought me a whole new way of looking at and listening to the sounds of English. This is a great little school.
Cathy, France, 2013
Very good course and level of teaching. Great input to improve English. Thank you!
Lots of changes, almost all letters are pronounced different from the way I used to. The course has helped me to see the difference in pronunciation with the writing. Thank you.Suada, Brazil, 2014
