To TalkShop,

Everything just became magnificent when I learned English at TalkShop. Apparently, TalkShop is a must to enjoy my stay here in the Philippines. Before I found the school, I was shy to speak English because of my strong accent and limited vocabulary. However, as I was exposed to English at TalkShop.

I gradually started to think that it's not a big deal to make mistakes as long as I can communicate with other people. Thanks to my teachers and classmates, I was able to improve my English skills as well as my thinking and attitude. It was a pleasant surprise to see the positive change in myself. Now, I feel confident in my communication skills and I think positively about myself. My life here in the Philippines has turned full circle because of TalkShop.

Learning English with TalkShop was always like a gathering of laughter and fun. Especially taking their teaching course was a good fit for me. It was ultimately thrilling to be given an opportunity to challenge myself, do something new, push my limits. It was a big breakthrough for me to handle Japanese business men and attend corporate seminars as a member of TalkShop.

Through such great experience, I made an amazing transformation from an ordinary housewife to a positive woman. I would like to give my deepest thaks to all the members of TalkShop. Quite frankly, I did not expect myself to have such happy days here in this country when I first came from Japan.

I believe that the opportunity to learn and grow is a generous gift from the Philippines. As a result, I fully enjoyed three years of my stay and became a big fan of this charming country. I have total faith in applying what I learned here to become a better person in my country. Thank you for everything.
