Pronunciation, Accent Reduction


Pronunciation for Foreign-Born Professionals
The way that we talk reflects our individuality and cultural heritage. However, an accent can become a problem if it interferes with communication or with the image that we wish to project in our business or personal relationships. This workshop helps you sound more like a native North American speaker of English by using a slower rate of speech, making the voice go up and down during speech, and putting the endings on words. See www.SpeechCoachMargo.com.

Clear Pronunciation for Non-Native Speakers--Part I
Clear English pronunciation is an important skill that improves your success in life, professionally and privately: for business, IELTS tests and daily conversations with others. The goal is to communicate and be understood effectively. As a non-native English speaker, your mouth and tongue muscles must be strong to form English words correctly. Part I will focus the correct placement, along with exercises to strengthen those muscles. We'll cover important ways to improve your English immediately. Are you ready to change your speaking and have fun in the process? See www.passion4pronunciation.com.
