Red Nose Day
Red Nose Day was born in 1985 in UK, leaded by the non-profit organization Comic Relief and it started in the US in 2015. Red Nose Day is more than a special day to have fun, it is a movement to end with child poverty in the world.
People from all over the United States get together to raise money at home, at school and at work, on behalf of the children who need it the most.
The money raised is destined to kids and youth projects in the 50 states and for some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia and Africa. This movement has supported projects to ensure that the children in need are healthy, educated and trained.
A wide array of the most important celebrities in the world of comedy, music, television and movies will participate tonight (May 25) in a big 2 hours show that will be transmitted live at the NBC Network, to inspire the nation to generously give.
In CCLS we have already joined to the"Red Nose Day" campaign, and you? Do you have your red nose?

Hello Ms Carol,
"Thank you for making this accent reduction class available. Carol is brilliant and she is the best teacher one can get in this field. Her presentation and teaching style was the most exciting and informative that I have ever seen. One of those amazing experiences that in the future I will look back and remember with appreciation.
I highly recommend CCLS Houston for ESL students!! There're many FREE ESL classes in Houston but if you want to improve your English skill, it's better to go to a language school like CCLS Houston. I’ve taken an “ENGLISH IN GENERAL” course for three months. My teacher loves English language, so he teaches me not only about in textbooks but also something that I want to know during my daily life. All CCLS Houston staff are kind and courteous to students. Facilities are not so large but it makes me feel like I’m at home. They held a wonderful Christmas party and it’s a good opportunity for me to speak English with other students and teachers.
My wife and I came to CCLS Houston looking for Accent Reduction Classes. We took group classes and individual classes with Carol. She is an excellent teacher and very knowledgeable. She made the learning process easier, and her teaching methodology really let us develop our hearing and speaking skills in order to get closer to the American accent. After completing one level we noticed how much our accent improved giving us more confidence and making our daily social interactions more enjoyable. We completed all the levels for accent reduction, and we can really say that she gave us the skills to keep mastering the American accent. The group and individual classes were tailored to our needs. We are very thankful for the learning experience with Carol at CCLS Houston.

I was really attracted by the unique accent reduction program offered by CCLS Houston.
As everyone knows, having an accent or not fully understand your interlocutor leads sometimes to tricky situations.
What I found at CCLS Houston is a high-level training with native-speaker’s instructors, very professional, rigorous but also kind at the same time: the perfect combo! Moreover, the small group class allows us to evolve confidently.
We first reviewed how to correctly produce the basic sounds which is truly essential and we progressively moved forwards to incorporate rhythm and stress with different kind of exercises including talking, active listening, recording ourselves, etc.
I can say that I learned a lot, improved a lot and I feel much more confident at work as well as in the everyday life situations! For this reason, I highly recommend this program and CCLS Houston in general. Thank you to my teacher Carol

Thanks for recommendation- couldn't be happier. Instructors at CCLS are excellent. Class is small. Dynamic format, 2 hours, twice a week. Very pleased with this investment.
I have two weeks taking English classes at CCLS Houston and I'm very excited for the weeks to come! Our teacher Paula is amazing; we develop English conversations, she correct us at any time that is needed and the classes are very student focus because it's a small group.
My name is César Sevilla, and I decided to study English because I wanted to improve my communication skills in everyday life. Even after I had studied English in Mexico, I was not totally confident when I had to talk to someone or when I had to take a phone call. But since the first week of English lessons I took at CCLS, I realized I was more confident when I was talking to people. I have met a lot of people since I took this course and I´m totally satisfied with the results. I believe that choosing CCLS to study English in Houston was the best decision I could have made. I liked the teaching method they have a lot, and I could set the schedule that best fit my needs. Besides, all the staff are great, they are so kind, helpful and friendly. Thank you Cinthya, Patricia and Layla for your outstanding job.
It's been an amazing and interesting experience so far, they are good at listening and paying attention to your specified area of needs. My English tutor (Layla) has been wonderful and quiet patient. In a nutshell, I must say I am deriving maximum satisfaction from my investment.
One of the biggest challenges when going to a new country is learning a new language and new culture, new way to do things, new rules and the same time look for a Job. A huge difficulty finding a good job was to learn the language. I was lucky to find CCLS in Houston and I learned not only one but two new languages (English and Portuguese – I am a Spanish speaker). This was high valued in my resume and I have found a very good job in Houston and also is reflected in my daily routine. I highly recommend classes at CCLS, they have a great staff and their methodology is simple and fun. Schedule is very flexible. CCLS changed my life!

Finding CCLS Houston has been one of the best things that ever happened to me since I moved to Houston. Actually I am taking the “Accent Reduction and Conversation” class. It has been a wonderful experience for me personally and professionally. Even when I speak English I always found hard to communicate effectively because of my accent. Those days are over!
It is a pleasure for me to write this letter of recommendation for CCLS Houston. The content and delivery of their language programs exceed my expectations. Taking the “Accent Reduction and Conversation” classes at CCLS Houston was such positive experience for me.
I really enjoy my classes at CCLS! My teacher enforces an "English-only' policy in the classroom. I definitely get a lot of conversation practice as well. We focus on pronunciation and using new vocabulary. I feel like my English improved a lot with CCLS!

Dear Ms. Cinthya Trueba and all the CCLS team, I am writing to you today because I decided to share a positive experience that I had with all of you, and also with your students or future ones as well. I want to tell you all how important CCLS was in my life to achieve my goals and make my dreams come true.
El "Red Nose Day" nació en 1985 en Reino Unido, dirigido por la organización sin ánimo de lucro Comic Relief y comenzó en los Estados Unidos en el 2015. "Red Nose Day" es más que un día especial para divertirse, es un movimiento para acabar con la pobreza infantil en el mundo.
Gente de todas partes de los Estados Unidos se reúne para recaudar dinero en casa, en la escuela o el trabajo, para los niños que más lo necesitan.
El dinero recaudado se destinará a programas para niños y jóvenes en los 50 estados y para algunas de las comunidades más pobres de América Latina, Asia y África. Este movimiento ha apoyado proyectos para asegurar que los niños necesitados estén sanos, educados y capacitados.
Gran número de las celebridades más importantes del mundo de la comedia, la música, la televisión y el cine participarán esta noche (25 de mayo) en una gran gala de dos horas que será transmitida en directo por la cadena NBC, para inspirar a la nación a dar generosamente.
En CCLS ya nos hemos unido a la campaña "Red Nose Day", ¿y tú? ¿Ya tienes tu nariz roja?
