Testimonials

Over 30 years, customers form public and private sectors have enjoyed learning English with Jack.

I would highly recommend Jack Barry to anyone who wants to actively develop their spoken-English skills for social and business purposes.

I have trained with Jack on a one to one basis and today my confidence in speaking English with acquaintances, in front of an audience and to strangers has risen dramatically. His services are well worth the success you will achieve with his customized language training methods.
