I did a lot of lessons with different teachers on Italki since April. Definitely James is the best English Teacher. He did something I thought was impossible: to rebuild my confidence to speak English on daily meetings and to be confortable, so now I don't get nervous to talk anymore (and not even want to disappear anymore before or during the meetings! thanks James) . James is also an excellent teacher and a very calm and fun person, he really makes me want to talk more and more in English. I do recommend his lessons.

Thank you for your help with preparing for my interview. It is nice to hear your feedback and advice about how I can sound more natural and what kind of phrases are better.

James is the best teacher you could’ve ever imagined . I've been taking lessons for about two years now and I don't think I'll ever give up on our conversations. :)

Thank you for answering my grammar questions. It was really helpful for me! Other piece of my puzzle 🧩 I'm so happy I can ask you for information that Google Translator can't give me. 😄

Every time I can’t wait to start his class. I really enjoyed every time. I took some class in italki and I thought his class is best for me. He corrected my sentence and taught me new vocabulary, sentence, expression, and so. Every time I’m really satisfied his class . You should take ;)!!
