Hello I am David Venter the founder and dreamer of Skill Pumper.
No, I'm not a language teacher. As obvious as it may be.
I am a Hungarian guy who has struggled with English for years. I invested a lot of time, energy, and money in learning English. I have tried almost every method available, but unfortunately, I have not been able to learn to speak fluently and confidently.
However, on April 7, 2019, everything changed.
For the first time in my life, I took a lesson from a foreign teacher, who did not speak a word in my mother tongue.
I honestly admit that my stomach was regularly cramping before the first lesson. I was afraid that I would not understand the teacher, I could not express myself, because the words would not come to my mind, I might get involved in verb tenses.
But this excitement was completely unnecessary.
My teacher was so kind, friendly, and direct that the inhibitions in me ceased in an instant. If not all the words, but I understood the point in the first lesson. Even if not in the most beautiful form, I could even answer her questions. Mostly with sentences, as simply as possible and sometimes incorrectly, but I spoke.
As the class ended, I already booked the next one.
In a few months, I was able to undress all previous inhibitions and uncertainties, improve my pronunciation, and finally felt that I no longer had any difficulty having to communicate in English.
That’s when I decided to give up my previous profession and help as many people as possible make learning easier and more effective for them too!
