Repetition. That’s the key of effectiveness in learning new things. Justin explained some different ways of how we are able to remember things. For example making videos/records during speaking tasks, notice important expressions and repeat them frequently from time to time etc. Furthermore, my personal most effective method was to imagine a special circumstance. Let’s take the sample expression due to the fact that. If I use that expression I imagine how I am reading a newspaper (because it’s full of facts) and I smell new printed paper. It’s like a move in my head, that makes me remember what I’ve learned during Justin’s lessons.
Justin helped me in understanding how the whole language system functions. He explained me the various connections between the English grammar, vocabulary etc. There’s no other teacher who could explain such complex things to me, because they don’t spend time to study those areas. Moreover, Justin worked out an individual learning plan with me to develop my progress.
I felt comfortable because I’d been prepared for the lessons very well. Mostly I did the homework and repeated the things of the previous lessons. My class was a huge benefit of my learning progress as well. Before lesson and during breaks I could relax and enjoy the time with my classmates.
I use the English language in my daily work now, I still improve my skills. After the course in Wimbledon my English was much better than before. I never used a dictionary again I also went to South Africa and used there my english. I had no communication problems anymore. That was a fantastic experience. To talk to people very natural and not searching all the words.”
In the beginning, I was a little bit nervous cuz I wasn’t confident in my English.
In the end, I really enjoyed his lesson and communication with many many friends!
I found that positive feeling and positive attitude are so important in our human communication.”
There were a lot more things we learned, but all in all and to shorten it a bit, his lessons helped me a lot in speaking and listening to ease the complexity of the English language and to widen my horizons”
I also loved the fact that, with him and his method, learning is easier and more enjoyable than everywhere else. Studying vocabulary or grammar suddenly became funnier and we all know that when we have fun, we remember things more easily! For this reason, time was well invested because every occasion or every theme was good to learn something new! Even playing “werewolves” was useful to practice and learn new expressions! He managed to make interesting things that usually students don’t like, also by using specific memory techniques that I still find very helpful!
Justin’s lessons helped me also to become more confident because I knew that on the other side there was a teacher who was interested in what I was saying (and believe me, that doesn’t happen very often).
I remember that, before starting our lessons, I was afraid of speaking and making mistakes but, after the month I spent in his class, I felt confident and I felt that every opportunity was worth being taken to improve my English.”
