Thank you so much for all you have done for me over the years.
Having speech lessons has given me more confidence. I would like to thank her for her support, advice, and above all patience!
My confidence has really improved thanks to Linda and her 6 week course.My clients now value my abilities more.
Linda really helped me improve my accent .I now feel much more confidant at work.I really enjoyed the lessons.
My 13 year old's confidence and speech has really improved. Thank you Linda.
My 4 year old daughter enjoyed lessons with Linda and her speech improved.
Thank you Linda I really found your 6 weeks course useful.It will help me to speak and be understood anywhere.Enjoy the chocolates.
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.
After only 3 lessons my colleagues noticed my speaking tone and analysis in person on the phone, on Skype had improved.Clients were more confidant in me and I felt more confidant too.I am continuing lessons to get even better.
We really are grateful to Linda for improving our spoken English in her six week course.
