About


MY APPROACH

I will help you to train your ear, improve your comprehension and speak with ease. The ultimate goal is to be able to THINK IN ENGLISH.

Practice makes perfect! Knowing the correct sentence structure or specific word is one thing but using this knowledge in daily life is another. I believe that listening and speaking is the fastest way to improve.  In class we cover a wide variety of topics, suited to your interests.
Concerned about your accent ? Not a problem. Word flow and speed are more important.  Concerned about lacking vocabulary? There is always a solution: use words you know in order to describe what you want to say. Have no fear of making mistakes! Most importantly: learn to THINK IN ENGLISH.

Stacey Dagron Hass: about me

I am an American who moved to Paris in 1990 and to The Hague in 2008 and I've worked in the banking and real estate sectors. Having had to speak several foreign languages over my lifetime, I appreciate the difficulties and believe that I can help anyone, no matter what level, learn to be at ease in speaking English!  In class we cover a wide variety of interesting subjects which make learning more interesting. I hold  Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Literature (Princeton and NYU) and a Master’s in Management from French business school E.S.C.P (Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Paris).

Testimonials


Wafa T.:GROUP LESSONS

I enjoyed the group lessons with Stacey. Stacey gave me important tips. She has a very good method to help: English exercices are more focused on listening- comprehension and speaking! Thank you Stacey.

Sabrina M.:GROUP LESSONS

I've been attending Stacey’s conversation lessons for a year. The lessons are dynamic and very interesting. Every week we discuss current global issues and with Stacey’s guidance we are able to expand our vocabulary and become more confident when speaking. I strongly recommend her!

Marlena O.:GROUP LESSONS

I have participated in Stacey's group lessons for more than one year now and I really enjoy it. Her method is very helpful and friendly. Not only do I develop vocabulary in many domains, but I'm also becoming more fluent in speaking and I understand films, news and English speaking people much better now. I really like her choice of materials and the lesson structure. It's very dynamic, challenging and interesting.

Alexandra F.:GROUP LESSONS

I have been taking Stacey's English courses since September 2017. It is with great pleasure that I attend these lessons because not only is our group of 4 students very friendly, but Stacey also teaches us English in a fun way through various current topics. These themes allow us to acquire vocabulary, expressions, to make sentences and therefore to be able to cope with everyday situations. The courses are always very dynamic and interesting. There are a lot of exchanges within the group which makes it very interactive.Stacey is very pleasant, listens quite a lot which enables people to talk freely without feeling embarrassed about expressing themselves in English.

Amelie V.:GROUP LESSONS

When I arrived in Den Haag, I wanted to improve my level and be at ease in speaking English. So I enrolled Stacey's classes in September 2017. I wasn't able to have a real conversation, only to make a few sentences. Thanks to Stacey, after a few lessons, I could have discussions with people here without being afraid to speak. Every week it's a real pleasure to go to Stacey's classes. We are a small group with a good atmosphere. We talk a lot about our difficulties and practice speaking useful for daily life. I have therefore decided to continue these classes as much as possible. I strongly recommend her!
