Expressing yourself confidently is about so much more than just words.
How do we show someone we are sad or angry, interested, shocked, affectionate or surprised?
How can we recognise when someone else is expressing these things towards us?
Like singing your favourite song or pretending to be your favourite actor in a movie, speaking English is a performance. It’s not just what you say, but how you say it. Learn to copy the rhythm, stresses, pauses, intonation and facial expressions of native English speakers.
The Imitation Technique gives you the chance to perform in English and discover there is a confident English speaker in you!

"I can see the improvement!"
Imitation lessons provide an opportunity for me to practise English speaking in real situations and around many different topics.
I can see the improvement in my pronunciation and intonation as well as the listening skills.

If you want to improve your pronunciation, the lessons are perfect because you can practise in anytime, many times! It’s perfect for improving your listening, your vocabulary, your grammar and your pronunciation. It’s the same way I learned my native language.
