Molly

I have to say this is the best English class l have taken. As a Chinese speaker the main problems I have are misunderstanding spoken English and miscommunication. Linda is very nice and a patient lady, experienced in teaching English. After six lessons I understand news on tv.
Linda built confidence and helped me understand the local English. She patiently explores the meaning of words and difficult sentences.
I enjoyed my lessons very much. I will be continuing my lessons on my return.
