These were the very questions I asked myself ten years ago when I relocated to the United States. Despite being an English teacher with a certification from Cambridge University, I soon discovered that my well-rounded English language skills were lacking something. It wasn't a matter of grammar or linguistic barriers; it went much deeper—the way I communicated. That realization became a pivotal moment in my life, prompting me to embark on a new journey of self-improvement. And the more I invested in enhancing my communication skills, the more "life perks" I began to experience: a free mug from the barista at my local coffee shop, invaluable advice from locals regarding my child's interests, and a new job that allowed me to apply my project management skills. These experiences, both big and small, have made my life easier, enabled me to enjoy conversations, and helped me attain my desired outcomes.
The moment when shyness and awkwardness transformed into relaxation and joy during conversations marked a turning point in my journey of emigration. And the longer I live and work in the American world, the more I've come to realize that emigration is akin to a game — a new country with a new language and new rules. Understanding these rules and following them makes emigration much more comfortable.
That's precisely why I decided to create this online training — to assist fellow immigrants in harnessing the power of effective communication and taking their emigration game in the US to new heights — enabling them to achieve their goals and enjoy their life on a daily basis. Having already taught over 450 individuals the fundamentals of grammar and pronunciation, I believe it's now time to delve deeper.
