    Judy Thompson

    Judy Thompson, B.A., TESL Certification, professor, author and speaker is an expert in spoken English. A student herself of French and German, Judy knows firsthand the frustrations of learning to speak a new language. Judy lived and taught in South Korea and it was there that she had the first of many revelations about spoken English and how it should be taught.

    Newcomers are embarrassed about their accents and grammar mistakes and native speakers are unaware that the way they speak makes it extremely difficult for non-native speakers to understand them.

    Judy leads language classes for both native and non-native speakers to foster understanding and effective communication in our diverse community.

    A long time resident of Caledon, Ontario, Judy has four children and lives with her husband Richard on a beautiful ten-acre hobby farm. She is an environmental activist who enjoys hiking and skiing. In her spare time, she raises champion hunter show ponies.

    The new idea (for me) that English is a stress-based language is invaluable. Thanks!

    (I also wish I was more fluent in French and German. Pas a pas!)

    Hi there!
    My name is Daniel, I´m a non-native speaker, but I´m on the way to learn English or this is the goal that I want to achieve as soon as I can.
    I would like to know about the possiblity to get the script of the speech of Mrs. Thompson, because as a non-native, there are a lot of thing that I would like to learn and on Youtube the transcription doesn´t match with the speech.
    Hope I may get it as soon as possible.
    Thanks in advance.
