"Thank you and Sarah for helping me (and all the others, I guess!) gain self-confidence and rise my self-esteem. It's definitely not easy when you move to another country, but your positive energy was contagious!
And actually I've got great news because in addition to my evening Italian lessons I got another job, just 2 days after we finished the course! It's a temp job (9 weeks) but it's full time and I work for Air France as a customer care person. I'm so happy! The office is a huge open space with people from all over the world, speaking 15 different languages. It couldn't go better!
"Creative Awakenings has given children the opportunity to express themselves in a fun and safe environment. The use of drama and music has really opened the children’s minds and got them to think about their behaviours. Teachers have seen a change in children’s behaviours in class and parents have seen a change in their children at home."

I want you say thank you to you both. Your training programme has been a blessing. Even though I still have some doubts about myself, I am looking forward to my next interview.
I was a bit anxious in the beginning with the role play and games but I now understand their significance. During the entire training, I felt like you genuinely cared about my welfare as well as the others in the group.
I was a bit surprised with myself today doing the final interview. At no point did I go blank. I felt more confident. In hindsight there's more I could have said and done but right now I am feeling proud of myself.
Thanks again. Keep up the good work as what you do is invaluable”

“I found the EAL course really helpful to me as it increased my interaction skills with others in groups by performing role plays in a drama setting. It has also increased my pronunciation of difficult words and the understanding of uncommon words found in newspapers by making sentences with them”

“My EAL pupil is speaking more frequently and his language acquisition is improving all the time, this is then reflected in his writing”
