HI, I’m Olivia. I’m taking SSP class. One of the advantages in this class is that we have mini-talk and presentation in our speaking time. After then, we get individual feedbacks of our pronunciations and grammatical mistakes.
And our teacher, Seti, gives everyone equal opportunities to speak and she gives us confidence. Also we learn how to organize speaking skills. So that’s why I’m taking SSP class third time already. I’ve got lots of improvement through this class.
