For me was helpful, the separation and stress of the words plus the English intonation. Thanks!! Norma, Chile
This class is very useful for me. I like that you point us for each person mistakes. I tried to copy as much as I can. But you could hear the differences that I could not hear. Patty, Thailand.
Nice meeting you again Cathie! We enjoyed the class. Loved it! Learned the tips and tricks for pronunciation - how to follow the rules for (Ed) and (Et), and - how to put the tongue to the right position for pronunciation. Thanks, Cathie. Lisa and Gerry, China.
I really liked the class and it was really useful. How to pronounce the word or letter most benefit(ted) me. I really enjoy the class while all people from different backgrounds. At the same time, I learnt some different cultures and Maori words. Daisy, China.
