This course is for those with English as a first language. Elocution is an old-fashioned term, but remains a skill for the 21st century. The voice is the most vital communication tool and clear, confident and expressive communication ensures that you get your message across. The course is designed to enable you to improve your diction, soften your accent, and develop your vocal skills in order to communicate more effectively in both business and social environments.
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 learning.
