“I come from Asia but spoke English while growing up so I felt my pronunciation of English was pretty good, yet I found that often Americans had trouble understanding me. I was surprised how quickly Caryl was able to identify the areas that were giving me trouble such as my speaking rhythm and word stress, little nuances that make a big difference when communicating with Americans. I'm really glad I took those lessons from Caryl as I notice a big improvement with my daily interactions with my colleagues and business partners.”

Justin K., Malaysia
