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.

I’m a Registered Nurse in Japan, and I’ve lived in Canada for 3 and half years. Since I took Sandra’s lesson, I have confidence speaking English. Before, I used to shy away from speaking with people but now I’m not afraid to talk to people.... She taught me a totally different tongue and lip movement than what I learned in Japan. Her techniques show us how to easily pronounce English correctly.

I have taken the LANS course for 5 months. Thanks to Sandra, I improved my TOEFL score and corrected my English pronunciation and grammar a lot!

I am on a Working Holiday Visa in a Canadian coffee shop. After taking the LANS Pronunciation course, it has been easier to communicate in English than before. I can talk with customers more easily and now enjoy my work much more. I think the reason is because I have more confidence in my pronunciation.
Shiori Sekine, Nurse
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 … 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
There is no doubt that Sandra is the best..teaching English pronunciation in Canada as well as offering order-made communication training. The reason I took her lesson was that I needed to practice Patient Counseling with appropriate English communication skills for the Canadian Pharmacy exam… She knows what Japanese tend to pronounce incorrectly, not only L and R … she knows what should be corrected and how it should be done. I passed the pharmacy test! I wanted to say thank-you for your help because now I am a pharmacist in Canada!
