On this channel, you’ll learn what to say, how to say it, and why it matters. If you want to improve your accent and communication skills in American English, you’re in the right place!
I work with motivated non-native English speakers who want to sound more natural in English so that they can achieve their personal and professional goals.
I know how important it is to be able to connect with other people in a language that isn’t our first. I speak Spanish fluently and have spent years living in Peru, Chile, and Argentina. I also speak Portuguese conversationally, but I understand much more than I can speak (sound familiar?).
