The Communication Skills program I followed showed me that it’s never too late to learn when you have the right coach! Shivanthi at ARETÉ gave me the tools to construct exactly what I want to say and find the best way of saying it. For example, I’m able to catch myself so that I don’t confuse the P and F sounds. But even if I still make mistakes, I have the confidence to make a joke of it and focus on getting my message across, especially with my colleagues in the US and UK. This has helped me to excel at my job and not shy away from taking on new challenges and roles.Athul LokuhennadiPearson Lanka
I discovered how to do a presentation without hiding behind the slides. First, I learned how to structure the content making it complete but concise. This already improved my confidence because I knew that if the message was solid, I could stand by it. Then, I learned techniques to project my voice, which was difficult at first, because I’m a shy person. But I learned that if my message was important, then I need to be heard. Ms Sandrasagra was very patient in helping me through the process. The presentation skills program helped me to progress to the next level in my career.Thaveeshi Udara Pearson Lanka
I received coaching from Ms Fernandes. She quickly picks up on your behavioral patterns without you feeling like you are being closely watched. Throughout the session she ensures that you are comfortable and at ease. She makes a conscious effort to have you recognize your talents and strengths and shows your weak points without making you feel too self-conscious or insecure. She makes it easy for people like me who have a hard time opening up, to not feel intimidated or judged. It feels like talking to a caring friend who genuinely wants me to succeed in life.Vindiya PandithaUniversity Student
The “English for the Job” program was perfect for me! I have always worked as a competent waiter but needed to improve my language skills so I could deal more confidently with English-speaking customers and tourists. I was lucky to have been invited to attend classes with a few of my colleagues with Shivanthi at ARETÉ. She focused on the English we needed to do our job well. We did role-plays to practice how to greet customers, explain the menu, deal with difficult situations… My managers have noticed that I do my job with more ease now.Mohanraj BalakrishnanSugar Bistro
I am passionate about learning languages so I decided to take private Spanish classes with Carmen at ARETÉ. Thanks to her I can now speak Spanish quite well and I’m capable of speaking with any Spanish-speaking person without feeling ashamed. We do online activities to learn and revise grammar and vocabulary. We only speak in Spanish and this helps to progress quickly. Because of my Spanish skills I was able to make many friends from Spain and almost all the South American countries. So, join ARETÉ to take the best Spanish lessons that you will find in Sri Lanka.Jayani ThewarapperumaStudent
