My employer was paying for the lessons, so it didn't matter to me, but I found SpeakEZ was the attractive choice for the reasonable pricing as well as the central location after doing some online research. I didn't know what to expect, but I was delighted with that the program was very well structured than I thought from the initial assessment to the textbook with online training tools. Of course, Allison, the instructor, was doing an excellent job from customizing the program to the in-person sessions, which I met 7 times. I thought she was a natural teacher full of compassions and encouragements. After all, I am very pleased with the result and I wish I could take the program a long time ago when I started learning English. Anyway, I strongly recommend SpeakEZ and Allison to anyone who speaks English as the second language!
