On Sunday, April 15th 2012, we held our first full day intensive workshop at our accent reduction training center in Kerrisdale. The attendees received a day long training, our accent reduction course book, and access to our online training software for a full year in order to achieve their goals as well as a free lunch.
By strange coincidence, one attendee, Ming Ji, was actually instructor Jeff Madigan’s past student from 12 years ago. At that time, Jeff was working for Coquitlam College’s vacation study program and Ming Ji had just arrived from China. “I remember that Jeff took us to Squamish to hike “the chief”. It was my first real experience in Canada and I have gone back there a few times with my friends.” Ming Ji said. Now, 12 years later, Jeff and Ming Ji are learning new things again. Vancouver is a small city in that way.
Jenny was also very happy with the one day workshop. She said “To further improve my pronunciation, I still need to work hard on it—that’s how your online practice system works. I am happy to have attended—it turned out to be a wonderful study experience forever!”
