“It upsets me to hear people say ‘I can’t learn a language’ – it simply isn’t true. Happiness, engagement and commitment are the key factors in learning a language. There are no boring subjects, only ineffective teachers. Stress and unhappiness are our worst enemies in the classroom as they prevent our working memory from retaining information. When you become one of my students, you have my full commitment to help you to achieve your goal – and what’s more, we will have fun getting there too.”
— Susie, Founder of Pronounce Languages
