English Language & Accent Coaching
for fluency and confidence in speaking
'After 2 years with language
tuition at the Attic Studio I became fluent in English and found employment
in my profession'
'In 2 years Joanna has taught me to converse in English;
I am now learning to discuss'
Pupils are encouraged with speaking and written exercises, gradually gaining confident and fluent expression. The private sessions enable people to polish their skills at their own pace in the privacy of the studio with Joanna.
'After 18 months' tuition
with Joanna I now engage in conversations with my Australian neighbours
without feeling apprehensive; I can travel alone and be independent'
