Confident Communication for International English Speakers
The course is designed specifically for individuals using English as an additional language. Previous delegates have included diplomats, embassies, business clients and students. This course will introduce you to the sounds of standard English as represented in the phonetic alphabet and offer techniques to practise and perfect the sounds that facilitate effective pronunciation. During the two-day course you will learn the art of speech specificity and clarity using enhanced vowels, consonants and intonation patterns
This course is driven by the needs of the individual, whilst working within a small group. The course is highly interactive with time built-in for listening, conversation and practice to assimilate the complex linguistic skills you are learning.
