Do you feel self-conscious when you speak English?
Do you avoid talking on the phone or in meetings?
Do people often ask you to repeat yourself?
You are probably speaking English with vocal patterns carried over from your native language. These habitual speech patterns can be successfully shifted with dedicated training and practice.
As you learn to speak standard American English, you will soon find yourself communicating with confidence and clarity: you at your best!
In today's team-oriented workplace, it is more important than ever to develop excellent interpersonal communication skills, including:
Integrating the American accent into every day speech
Articulating and projecting your voice in a professional manner
Using your voice confidently and with ease in any situation
Presentation skills are a natural extension of accent and communication skills training:
Develop an energetic, charismatic sound
Learn to use stress, rhythm, enunciation and intonation to convey your message
Engage with the audience in an authentic, dynamic way
Other public speaking skills such as body language, vocal projection, using silence and pausing, and effective use of visuals will also be covered as needed.
