I believe English confidence and fluency are possible for everyone. That includes you.
Here are a few more success stories for you to enjoy.
“The course ended exactly one day before a job interview that I had and I felt really confident for the job interview.
As a result, I GOT THE A JOB! Furthermore, it was amazing to watch videos from people all over the world, with different accents and opinions!
I was able to improve my confidence while giving answers and explanations about different topics. Besides, it was a great opportunity to train myself on giving answers in a specific period of time. It helped me because as part of the job interview I had a 2 minute presentation, and since I had done videos and trained a lot, it became easy to accomplish this task.”Thayna
“I did a presentation in English at work today, to do that I followed the steps that Anne Marie suggested in a previous lesson about How to do a good presentation in English”.
To be ready, I practiced my talking a lot, and also I presented to a friend to receive some advice. Of course, I was nervous during the presentation, but I did my best to explain everything with confidence. In the final of the presentation, I received positive feedback from my boss, and I’m feeling relieved and happy.
I would like to thank Anne Marie for the support and encouragement. I’m glad that I did Fluency School last year it has helped me overcome the fear of speaking in English and I’m feeling much more confident now! THANK YOU!!!”Emilia
“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am extremely grateful to you and your tips for job interviews in English.
I had my first job interview in English (ever) earlier this week and it went well. Actually so good that I was hired to the job I had applied to:) I think that without your tips and guidebook the interview would not have been so successful for me.
I am so glad to start at this new job and glad that I found you on the internet.”Eva
“The course was extraordinary experience. I have made it to the end and now I feel great about myself.
This was exactly what I needed to improve my speaking abilities. Anne Marie is the best teacher ever and my group was the greatest one! I have learned a lot of new words, phrases, idioms and expressions. I have improved a lot of my grammar issues.
And finally, I have no problems to speak English aloud.”Michaela
“I think I’m more confident in my speaking, since I’ve learnt a lot from you and from other participants.
To say it very simply – I’ve just loved your comments and comments from others. I’ve accomplished many others – improving my accuracy and fluency.
Thank you 1000x Anne Marie for all your hard effort 🙂 One more time, I truly from my heart thank you for an opportunity to participate. It was very supportive, interesting and challenging for me. Your calm voice was very relaxing and supportive for me and I felt safe.”Ala
“To be a good teacher is a hard work, but to be a real teacher is a gift!
Annemarie, you are a real teacher who motivates to go ahead, encourages and what is more important to make everyone believe in his/her success! Thanks to my participation, I got a great experience of communication with people of different countries, improved my speaking skills and mastered new abilities.
Thank you very much, Annemarie, for your creative, friendly and innovative approach to each student!”Olga
“Dear Annemarie, From the bottom of my heart I am very grateful for the opportunity to develop my speaking skills with you.
It’s was very great and wonderful experience. I loved it so much. I also would like to thank you for your emails, especially the one about Negotiating and key expressions you presented to us. Very precise explanations and useful tools for preparation, thanks.”Ruta
“I think that I increased my fluency a lot. It’s easier to speak about different topics without much time for thinking how to say what I want. And I definitely extended my vocabulary with new phrasal verbs.
“I appreciated the diversity of topics with the emphasis on being concise, coherent and creative, following a timing, I also noticed the seriousness and the involvement of Anne Marie who always corrected and offered feedback for every participant. I felt a big connection between her and all participants.
I have learned by my mistakes that I have done during the challenge and after Anne Marie’s correction, I know now how to use properly some verbs, some tenses, conditionals. I have become more confident and less scary to speak English because I was able to talk with a diversity of people, from different countries and they understood what I said.
I found guidance, friendship, discipline, professionalism, involvement, everything, in one place. Thank you very much, Anne Marie, for this opportunity!”Adriana
“There are lots of changes in my English. One of these changes is that I have the boldness to use English with anyone without being nervous.
The greatest benefit for me is the feedback and the comments after making challenges, and I learned a lot from my teacher and the other participants.”
“I’d like to share that Fluency Challenge was very helpful for me and I’d love to continue. I like Annemarie’s method of teaching that’s why I’ve always felt comfortable and became more confident time by time.”
