Learning never stops especially for the Dominican Sisters of St. Joseph. Despite their hectic schedule, the dynamic and devoted nuns spend a weekend  each month to hone their voice as they polish their English proficiency.  TalkShop CEO Sheila Viesca makes each learning session meaningful and enjoyable with her customized approach and interactive lessons in pronunciation,  public speaking, grammar mastery, creative thinking, and critical writing.

The congregation extends its thanks to Ms. Viesca through the participants’ individual letters:

Dear Ms. Sheila,

Hello! Thank you for making my day more enjoyable. It really is a great blessing to have this program in our congregation.

Wow! I was able to further my knowledge with all that has been taught. The opportunity to bond with the sisters should be regularly done at least once a month. The workshops are a great way to see each other and talk. Also, learning at the same time makes it pleasantly different!

I hope that this workshop will be regularly implemented or included in our program. Having this workshop is very educational.
