Hmm, let’s see…. (as you watch, keep in mind that Nell is a native English speaker)....
As you may have guessed, even for a native speaker of English, changing pronunciation patterns is tricky - so for someone who is learning English as a second language, changing or introducing new pronunciation patterns is hard!!
We help professionals learning English as a second language improve their pronunciation in English through our quality driven, expert e-courses
Step by step listening activities help professionals refine their listening skills - correctly understanding spoken messages is critical in certain industries / roles.
Step by step pronunciation practice activities that develop your employees confidence that they can be understood without having to repeat specific words or phrases.
Work on accent through gradually listening to and imitating stress, rhythm and intonation patterns in English.
Clients walk away with strategies to maintain their new pronunciation skills over time - so they will know how to work on new words / phrases they initially find difficult to say.
We offer x 4 courses (including the free taster).
English pronunciation is a very big topic. Our focus is advanced pronunciation. All our courses provide training in key skills for advanced pronunciation. We help our clients to apply these skills to improve their pronunciation, so they are understood first time, in person and on the phone. Our step by step approach also gives our clients the opportunity to develop their confidence in using their new pronunciation skills.
This taster course takes a client through our listening activities and some key tips we use throughout all our courses.
Benefits: clients experience how the courses typically work and have the opportunity to try some of our listening activities. Our key tips demonstrate three strategies we use throughout our courses. These are not widely known and are based on our specialist training and experience in working on changing pronunciation patterns and / or introducing new ones.
