This course absolutely helps me build the connection with people and even I can learn more base on that connection. This is the most amazing part of learning English!"

Monika Krzakziółkowska

This course has been such a journey, wonderful for my understanding skills, thanks. Nowadays, even when I’m doing something else and the TV is on with something in English, I get some understanding without paying attention. Only after some months with this course. I extremely recommend it!! Thanks a lot.

This is something completely different from every other resource to study ESL. The gap between what I was used to listening to in all my English classes and the real people in the US was always so big. You’re bringing up real people in their real lives and that makes a huge difference.

Ricardo Rodriguez

They take you to parts of the USA to which you may never have the opportunity to go. One of the biggest benefits of the Bridge To Connection was I quickly gained confidence in my pronunciation and it I felt my communicating skills were freed like by magic. My english speaking friends noticed the difference right away!

"I'm 30 years old from Vietnam and 7 years ago, I earned my MBA in the UK. I love England but I also really love the way you teach English from the US, it helped open my eyes a lot. I would like to thank you sincerely for the precious materials and courses you have made over the years. I found them very valuable and helpful indeed. I could feel your passion. Best wishes to you and your team!"

"So far, some topic like Tattoos and Rocketman are really impressing me. Even I need to repeat again and again to capture all the information but it never decreases my interest. Thanks for your effort and looking forward to following the journey. Like your instruction, it’s something like you take us to the journey across US, and it really hits the spot I think, as I’m really into travel related program or drama."
