As a university lecturer who is also often invited to speak at conferences and events, I sometimes felt that my accent and pronunciation meant that audiences found it difficult to understand me. Sonya quickly identified what was needed and set about helping me to put it right. I now feel much more confident, and people have no trouble understanding me. Sonya is a superb teacher and I would recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking to improve their spoken English.

I would highly recommend her
Being Spanish my accent is quite strong. Sonya is an excellent teacher, very experienced with different accent backgrounds so she customised my learning program to my specific needs, as she knows what sounds specifically are more challenging for me. She explains very clearly how to pronounce the sounds in RP English. She is also very good at giving practice exercises which are relevant for my professional life. Having lived in the UK for many years, with her help I am learning how to express myself more clearly and make sure native speakers understand me which is very important also to build up my confidence to speak in larger audiences. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

Very effective exercises
So far I haven't stopped practicing, as regularly as possible, the pronunciation exercises Sonya gave me a few months ago. Why? Just because they are very effective! Especially when practiced every day, no more than 5-10 minutes. It really helped me for my songs. Besides, Sonya is a very professional, thorough and generous teacher so it's been a real pleasure to work with her during those 2 months. When I'll come back to London I'll definitely call her to continue the work we've started.
