Hi Susan, my pronunciation is always a problem. I will find someway to improve.

Thanks for the great coaching!

Susan, thank you very much. I learned a lot through the session. And I found my shortcomings of my English language skills. I will try as you recommended. Great Lesson, great you!

Susan, thanks for your feedback. The pleasure is mine.I will try to speak slowly and practice pronunciation.My perception is you are approachable teacher. regards Tony

Teacher Susan helped me to understand room to improve, especially on pronunciation and phrasal verbs. Thanks a lot!

I am really impressed by examples like Hilary Clinton. They helped me better understand the implicit content.
