I took Sandra's LANS Pronounce and Speak Fluently Course where I learned English pronunciation patterns that I couldn’t learn in Japan....I corrected my English intonation and accent through practice reading. The medical practice reading was essential to my successful presentation at an International Medical Conference.

Not only have I improved my pronunciation to date, but I’ve also acquired useful tools to continue self-training going forward. Time and money spent for her course was one of the most fruitful investments I ever made.

I work for an international consulting firm in Japan, and use English in my work. I took LANS lessons and improved my English skills dramatically. Now, I don’t feel any stress in using English. I strongly recommend that you take this course if you really want to improve your English.

When I came to Toronto, I noticed that I did not have much opportunity to improve my speaking skill in English Language Program in UofT. Before I met you my speaking score in esl school was very bad. Then I met you and took the LANS course. You really helped me to improve my speaking skill, especially pronunciation. I got an A at school in speaking! I became able to say my name in English with confidence, tell my opinion to friends appropriately and ask questions to strangers on the road without hesitation. I think you really changed my life!
Riko Tabuchi, Pharmacology Major
I looked forward to taking your class all the time. Your teaching was efficient. Before taking your class, I had a lot of problems in speaking and I didn’t know how to pronounce every word. But I understand it now! Thank-you for being patient and I will never forget the great time I had taking the LANS Pronunciation Fluency class.
Rumi Ogata, Travel Agent
I was awakened to the truth at my first lesson, I had a lot of misunderstandings about English pronunciation, even though I had learned English for 25 years in Japan. LANS lessons present us our common weak points and provides proper solutions …is well organized, necessary and sufficient. This is an important point for a busy business person. My English pronunciation was dramatically improved in a short period of time, I strongly recommend taking her lesson.
Dr. Hideki Tsubota, Cardiac Surgeon Research Fellow, Sunnybrook Health Science Center
Before I started the LANS, some clients did not understand what I was saying because of my Japanese accent. Some of them even requested transferring the call to another representative who spoke better English. After several lessons with you, I noticed that phone calls with clients became much easier and less stressful. People stopped complaining about my accent. I strongly recommend the LANS Pronunciation Course for anyone who wishes to improve his/her English speaking skills.
