Here is what Joe posted on one of the stuttering forums on the next day after his Etalon course graduation:
“Etalon has been a revelation to me. Right now, I’m over the moon! I couldn’t thank Anna and Roman enough. I started the course on Wednesday and finished it on Friday. I have now done the Etalon course and currently, I am stutter free. When I say stutter free I mean I am aware of the cause of stuttering and it was pointed out clearly, why I make mistakes in my speech. By the second day, I was already speaking without any mistakes and my speech was great.
The course was very easy to understand. There’s no magic ‘technique’. It’s just the natural way of speaking, using your memory and your attention correctly. Although my speech is stutter free (I haven’t stuttered since the first day of the class), I do make some mistakes like talking without pauses without having a word ready to say, but I can control this easily. When I follow the natural norms, my speech is perfect…
Also, I never feel the need to monitor my breathing anymore. I used to focus on taking deep breaths, but with this course, my natural speech just always makes me feel relaxed with no tension in my throat. I use to pre-block loads too… I have practically eliminated this, but sometimes when I am not paying attention to what I’m about to say, I make a mistake. But this isn’t ‘stuttering’! This is just me opening my mouth when I haven’t recalled the word I want to say.
Today, I have been starting every conversation, asking questions, making jokes, all without stuttering. Once you understand that stuttering is not neurological and is something you can eliminate with following the natural norms of memory, attention, and speech, then, you will understand me clearer. The feeling of being able to say whatever pops into my head without thinking about it and trying to arrange sentences in my head is great and my confidence is growing more by the day. I was still skeptical even on the first day of the class, but Roman (with the translation of Anna) explained what was going wrong in my speech and I corrected I it immediately. As long as I keep on speaking every day and follow the norms (which are just like following the rules to ride a bike!), then I’m 100% confident that my speech will be always perfect.
I hope people start to realize that the course is 100% genuine. I truly believe Etalon will become global once it starts to receive more publicity. Keep in mind that this is coming from a person who hated Anna and thought it was a scam 2 years ago… Now, I love Anna and I think the course is amazing. Even my mum and dad are interested in it and have read some of Anna’s book. I think it was 100% worth it and I would have done it 5 years ago if I knew about it”
