My experience in English began in 1955 with a 15-day internship at the Berlitz school in Paris, in order to prepare me for Blackburn Technical College (a textile school) - Sweet memories! At the beginning of 1957, I had to return in France following my father's death, and since then, I didn't practise English any more. I started again in 2011 with Gymglish for a few days; then suddenly the urge came back to me last October to try again with Gymglish; I lost a lot, and it's very difficult to recover it especially for phone conversations that despite being "slow", actually go too fast. This often prevents me from understanding, and makes it difficult to implement lessons. However, it's a rebirth and recalls good memories.— Nosjean P. (Berck sur mer, FRANCE)
