I nearly worked three months with Carol on improving my English pronunciation skills.
During the first lessons, Carol paid close attention to my individual learning type. She immediately corresponded to my needs and understood my goals. In Carol I found a perfect support and mentor in order to improve my English speaking and pronouncing skills. She taught me the most common rules and we worked a lot on "mouth choreography" and other creative ways for remembering how to pronounce and spell words in English.
After each session Carol created a session-related video for me so that I was able to train, to repeat and to work on the specific rules for the correct pronunciation at home. Carol is a very patient and encouraging teacher.
Since my lessons with Carol I communicate with much more clarity and confidence.
Thank you so much for your support and individual help to feel successful in reaching my goals. Our intensive work, the exercised rules, and productive practice sessions and even more the created training videos were and still are so valuable for me!
