"This training was not only for improving my accent and making it understandable for others, but it was to eliminate/minimize the inferiority complex I had, before this course.
I must appreciate that you are extremely knowledgeable on the subject (I remember you demonstrating different accents and I could hear the difference and the way I was sounding before). I must also say that you are a thorough professional, even after the long duration of the course you kept us motivated all the time and managed the session timings impeccably and gave equal opportunity to all of us.
Thanks once again for everything."
"I undergo a lot of technical trainings as part of my professional development. In most cases, I end up not using those skills at work and forget those in a month’s time. But this language training is a life skill that is going to be useful for the rest of my life. I wish I had taken this course earlier."

She is very knowledgeable about this subject and did an excellent job of tailoring the training to address individual’s particular challenges.

As a result I am feeling much more confident in my communication."

"I believe you heard this from each and every one of your students, but you really help not only with the accent but you boost the self assurance of each of the persons that is lucky enough of be on your training. I did enjoy the experience not only for the improvement on the way I communicate but also for the professionalism and concern you put into the task of helping me. It is (normal for me) to keep the upmost respect for the teachers I had during my learning years. You sure have a special place among them due to your dedication and for the tremendous impact your teaching has had in my career."

It has indeed become highly beneficial and I will be raising its awareness within our HR organization and technical staff as a 'must-do' activity. I believe that all non-native speakers will come out of it with measurable improvement in their ability to be more comprehensible."
