Speaker Biography and Introduction of the Speech:
Jerry is well known among Chinese professionals and students for his invention "Jerry English" in significantly improving skills in English communication. Many CCFA members have attended Jerry’s courses since his last seminar at CCFA and found the experience very beneficial. As a result, we decided to invite Jerry back to our Lunch & Learn session to give our members an opportunity to see the possibility of speaking like a native as well as a taste of his 32-hour “Jerry English” course.
Jerry came to Canada in 2000 with his parents at the age of 20. He said his English was so poor that he initially thought people on English TV program were speaking French. He made himself a promise in front of the TV, “I will speak this language as well as this person on TV in two years.”
Two years later, Jerry was the manager of a telemarketing company, speaking like a native speaker. The secret was that he spent anywhere between three to five hours every day to perfect his English over the two years while he was doing all kinds of odd jobs to support himself during the day.
After a few other adventures, Jerry rekindled his desire in helping other Chinese immigrants to speak better English. He quit his job and spent two months to develop his method of learning spoken English. It took him a few more months to find a partner and a few more years to perfect his teaching of “Jerry English”.
With his initial coaching and your perseverance in practicing spoken English using his method, he believes you can speak like a native speaker in two years.
