  • Excellent visuals, great energy and enthusiasm. A true Canadian genius to share with the world.
  • This was very relevant as I have already introduced the “English Is Stupid” program to my students. I was interested in the development of the dictionary. I could have listened for another hour, though. Too short.
  • Great work!
  • I have used some of the methods from this resource before and they have worked in the classroom.
  • I learned valuable information and ideas from this workshop. It takes time for students to switch from their traditional way of learning words in an alphabetical order to this new method.
  • I teach pronunciation so it was very relevant to me.
  • Interesting session. Good info for students.
  • Very insightful and engaging
  • This was a very interesting and practical workshop on how to teach spelling through pronunciation color codes. Learners whose weaknesses are in speaking and pronunciation would benefit from this workshop. Teachers who implement pronunciation components into their ESL lesson plans would also find this workshop useful and practical.
  • Very well presented. Practical and innovative.

  • The “Grass is Black” workshop stands out the most in my mind, since Judy Thompson, the presenter, provided very concrete teaching scenarios with practical examples that can be applied in pronunciation lessons. Her enthusiasm was a great motivator for teachers who can in turn, motivate their students.
  • The presenter knows the topic well and made it interesting
  • Longer would have been even better!!!
  • Judy is excellent and inspiring!
  • Judy is engaging and entertaining. She is an excellent speaker and one can tell she’s a great teacher.
  • Judy is a high-energy presenter
  • Great concept!
