Dear ESL Teachers, Directors, and Coordinators of Adult Education:
Paul Gruber’s Pronunciation Workshop video series is the best, most energizing series of its kind. In fact, it is, to the best of my knowledge, the only one of its kind. Paul himself is one of a kind when it comes to getting down to the essential problems new English speakers encounter as they continue their American journey. He presents the sessions in such a way as to connect, attract, and correct. They are both fun and challenging for the ESL students.
As an adult coordinator for the largest adult learning center in the state of Oklahoma, serving over 2,500 ESL students last fiscal year, I can speak from personal experience when I say that this series has both energized and fine-tuned our students’ English-speaking abilities. It has both lifted their spirits and challenged them by speaking directly to their most commonly-committed pronunciation errors.
Put simply, Gruber’s course is nothing short of terrific. It has been an integral part of our ESL classes and our teachers’ lesson-planning for over two years now. We at the OCCC Adult Learning Center have found Pronunciation Workshop to also be a great retention tool for our ESL students who don’t want to miss even one class. I notice that students look forward to the weekly sessions in the classroom, plus they have grown in self-confidence in their ability to communicate effectively in their lives outside the classroom.
If you are looking for a video series that is worth the money and will have a tremendous impact on your students and faculty, I can assure you that Paul Gruber’s Pronunciation Workshop will be your Best Investment!
