Milica Stevic, Biologist

Jake helped me to become a better English speaker.

I am a biologist from Serbia and a lot of my time is spent researching with colleagues which involves a lot of speaking.  I had become very frustrated and embarrassed because people couldn’t understand what I was saying, even though the words that came out of my mouth were correct.  I initially wanted to lose my Serbian accent, but Jake empowered me to embrace it, and gave me the skills to slow my speech down – Serbian is very quick.  I can’t thank him enough!
