“The day I returned from school and announced that I had been forecast a ‘U’ in GCSE was a turning point in my linguistic studies. Dad immediately took to the internet, looking for a Proper Teacher who could re-ignite my desire to speak a language rather than seek to extinguish it. He found Alexa somehow on the web and I had an introductory lesson with her. After that, there was no turning back. I wanted to learn, looked forward to my lessons (even the homework) and far from achieving the ‘U’ that had been predicted for me, passed the GCSE a year early with an ‘A’. The difference was that Alexa made the lessons fun and I learned without realising I was learning. I consider talking to Alexa on a friendly basis and I learn at the same time!”
