"English has always been a challenge for me. I didn't go to a school that taught it properly, and that left a lot of gaps, especially in my pronunciation. Now I am a professor at a university, and I must often communicate in English, which made me feel insecure. The classes with Ben gave me confidence, first by showing me that I don't have to hide my accent and then by giving me fundamental clues that allowed me to be more aware of my primary difficulties. This type of learning was critical as it not only helped me during the classes, but it will continue to help me now that they are over. I want to highlight not only the obvious - Ben's great professional ability -, but also his great human qualities, which make him an excellent teacher from whom you can learn a lot as he creates a warm and comfortable academic atmosphere that is ideal for learning."
