I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the Plunge class I recently took at Speak. I found it to be intense, but fun. Carlos did a great job with the class. We had fun while learning a lot. Because the class was so small, we got a lot of practice in the language although I have to admit by the end of the second week my brain was in a fog. It has made me realize that if I want to learn the language, I really need to keep it up.

When I first enrolled in the conversation class with Paula, I was skeptical. My bad habit had such a deep root. How could the weekly class be helpful? Paula systematically taught me pronunciation, grammar and articulation. Then it came to the hard part: practice, practice, and practice. To prepare a ten-minute presentation for a conference, Paula literally had to correct my every single sentence. In the end, after I gave my talk, one of my Chinese colleagues came to me and said, “I did not know you could speak English that well.” I considered this a big compliment since Chinese people rarely compliment each other.
