“Choosing Successfully Speaking for my Professional Speaking Skills & Accent Modification was the right decision to make.

It was a life-changing experience and I thank Lynda for her professionalism, patience, and understanding.

The program has given a boost to my professional confidence as people around me understand me better and I do not have to repeat myself as I used to before the program.

Also very exciting is how this program has improved my listening ability.

Before this program, I used to think that native speakers talk too fast.

Lynda opened my ‘eyes’ to different aspects of the American English I did not know.

I wish I had done it a long time ago. I would surely recommend Successfully Speaking to anyone who really wants value for his or her time and money.”

“I am writing to share with you the excellent news and to thank you once again!
I took my OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview) test in order to obtain my Maryland medical License, and my score was the highest possible:

Advanced High!! I also took the TOEFL and did great.

I completed all my requirements and already have my Maryland Medical License.
Ever since taking the course with you, I feel more comfortable

talking to my colleagues and I can communicate my ideas better in public.
Lynda, I could not have done it without all your help and Dr. R’s support.

Thank you again!”
