Moreover, 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.
Thank-you very much.
Nursing is my life, so I’d like to work as a nurse in Canada. Therefore, I’ve studied nursing at college. However, when I went to work as a student nurse (clinical practice) at the hospitals, I was shocked because many elderly patients and other staff could not understand my English. I found Sandra’s school, and took her lessons. 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…… At the rehearsal, four group members complimented me on my clear English. Also two Canadian members advised two other foreign students that they could not understand their English……Sandra helped to improve my speaking, and we got 28/30 on the presentation.
I took the exam and I got a great result.
Thank you very much Sandra!
Thank-you so much Sandra!
It is essential in the design field to convince our suppliers/members in the team I belong to move forward development projects with clearing concerns.
Thanks to my English pronunciation and ability to describe actions with prepositions have been improved by her classes, I have been able to express my idea with
high efficiency and enhancing persuasiveness.
There are three reasons for this:
(1) Strategy: she has her own strategies to improve English skills. Especially, her pronunciation method is excellent. Different from many ESL teachers….
(2) Responsibility: she is a professional teacher and feels responsible for the improvement of her students…always tries to understand the status of her students’ English and thinks about how to solve problems effectively.
(3) Friendly: she is a very friendly and interesting person. … I guarantee that you will enjoy your time talking with her.
It really helped a lot.
I could understand much more easily what they said in English and that was amazing! I’m so happy to get this score:)
Thank you so much, Sandra!!
Thank you so much.
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.
I strongly recommend taking the LANS Pronunciation course if you don’t have confidence with your pronunciation. I loved taking this class!
However, nothing worked for me. They were too complicated and difficult to understand. Since I have taken Sandra’s lesson, I have received a lot of compliments on my pronunciation.
Her way of teaching was easy to understand for me and she told me how to work on it. She really knows Japanese students’ weak points and doesn’t give up until we get it. I learned not only pronunciation but also conversation and grammar. I needed someone to correct my errors in English which I am not aware of.
After I came back to Japan, I tried to find someone like her, but I didn’t find the right person. It is very difficult to find a teacher who can point out and correct our weak points like her.
I really recommend taking her lesson while you are in Toronto. She is also a kind of person who we can talk on many kinds of topic and a great person to be around too.
First, her pronunciation theory is original and accurate and her method worked effectively for me. For example, I discovered the difference between R and L which I hadn’t been able to distinguish since I came to Canada despite studying ESL at a language school. She showed me how to move my mouth and I could feel how English sounds work.
Second, she has a strong ability with her ears. She could hear the pronunciation mistakes I made whenever I talked and she corrected me. I didn’t realize my mistake when I spoke, but after her explanation I understood everything.
Third, she is straight forward. She doesn’t hesitate to point out errors. I think this is very important to improve my English. In my daily life, most of my Canadian acquaintances don’t correct me and even some of my English teachers. That is an important skill for a teacher to have.
In addition, I like her personality. I hope you will also enjoy talking about movies and various topics with her.
I’ve never had such a remarkable teacher!!!
