I enjoyed the lesson, a very good teacher.
My boyfriend prepared an interview for a job opportunity in Brussels with David. He found David's lessons extremely useful and well prepared. Already after the first lesson, he had a good feeling and his confidence in speaking English greatly improved. David is therefore strongly recommended for interviews preparation and for English learning in general. Thank you David!
Very good teacher
David is a great teacher for me, thank you!
The goal was to prepare me in 10 sessions for an important language test/interview. David did a great job! He perfectly understood my needs and prepared me very well, paying attention to the linguistic and the mental aspects needed to succeed in interviews. I can really recommend him and will contact him again if one day i would need to prepare other English challenges.
