Katya had to talk on the phone to factory staff in the north east of England but couldn't understand their local accent
With the help of videos, we worked on identifying the key features of that accent and that enabled her to listen and understand better

what people say about working with me
Over my life I had lessons with many teachers, some of them were native speakers also. However Sue pays so much attention to my English to make it sounds more natural like nobody before. Sue, thank you very much!
Irina, sales rep, Russia
Having a tailored program with Sue was really helpful; learning idiomatic expressions and listening to authentic speech. Using books and filling in blanks is easy but at work you have to write emails from scratch. I’d been working in very formal English – she challenged me to work in a more informal way. When I was going for interviews I picked up the notes that we had prepared on how to describe myself. I wouldn’t be able to do my job so well.
Carmen Abis (Italian), accounts administrator, New Zealand
I would like to commend Sue for her skills as a pronunciation coach. Before starting learning English with Sue, my English was terrible. I didn’t think I could ever speak and understand spoken English well. My pronunciation has improved hugely and I have been following her methods ever since. I would recommend Sue to anyone who wants to practise the language or just want to develop their confidence. Now I feel relaxed when I have a conversation in English. I am really glad and thankful to her.
Inas, pharmacist, New Zealand
Sue is expert at pronunciation coaching! She taught me how words were pronounced in natural speech, which was really helpful. It seems possible for a non-native speaker to sound like a native only if we have a good teacher and lots of practice.
Joyce, (Chinese) pre-school teacher, Australia

The delicate art of giving information and asking for things in a way that gets you what you want. There are many ways of saying what you mean. Think about how a 2- year old asks for something and you are left in no doubt about what they want. Read more>>
