MEANINGFUL FEEDBACK

 

what my students say:

“Your approach is the most useful tool I have had as yet.”

I thought that this program would not deliver my expectations. I needed a program suited to my individual needs that would enable me to progress and keep me motivated.
I have more realistic expectations about my progress and sustained motivation. This was provided my your many hints and tips.
The recordings are most useful. They enable me to : Compare and contrast my speaking with yours.
Revisit the recordings to improve and monitor my progress.
Identify words and phrases that I need to improve.
Your approach is the most useful tool I have had as yet.

questions you might have:

 
I record most of my feedback in the morning - or in the evening, when there are better chances to ask someone else to take a picture (but worse light…). P.S. In case you’re wondering, that’s my toddler’s art on the wall!

How does it work?

After you book and pay for your spot, I send you the materials on the start date of the service (Thursday).

You study the material, record your answers on your phone (if your phone doesn’t have this option you can use a free online tool) and you receive my feedback.

I’m not available on Thursday. Can I still participate?

Of course!

Your study week starts every Thursday and ends every Wednesday.

This means that you receive your supporting worksheet on Thursday and have one week to finish your speaking tasks and get my feedback. You can send your speaking tasks in 1 day or spread them out in the week. It’s up to you.

 

How do I study?

You learn with your materials (supporting vocabulary, phrases, questions) and record your speaking based on the speaking prompts.

You choose your theme. You also have unlimited support through online private chat. I answer any questions about the theme you’re working on and give you additional resources.

 

What is included in the feedback?

I give you a detailed, personalized feedback in audio and written form.

I add comments about grammar, structure, better/alternative word use, pronunciation and intonation you can implement right away. (I might add some fun etymology facts too, if you’re into that!).

what my students say:

I didn’t think I had any more free time to devote to extra language studies, but I wanted to improve my ability to speak Greek. Danae offered me a way to achieve that.
I found your supporting worksheet easy to understand and I could read it quite well without having to look up too many words in the dictionary.
Also, when you spoke to me and offered comments on my oral submissions I could understand what you were saying to me.
That made me full of joy and encouragement.
With recordings I had to present my sentences in such a way as to be understood and also recordings made me more conscious of my pronunciation of Greek words.
— Mardie Holton-Cleave
