New Workshop for Improving Speaking and Communication Skills
At this 90-minute workshop, we will discuss elements of speech that are important to all speakers, whether native or non-native speakers of English, such as speech clarity, volume, rate, and dynamism.
In my practice, I have found that the majority of native English speakers are working on improving one or more of these factors, and that communicative competence and confidence comes with a greater awareness for one's own speech habits, and understanding how to improve specific areas of communication. All of the issues that my native English speaking clients face often apply doubly to my foreign clients.
The second part of the session will address specific sounds that are challenging for most non-native speakers: **the "th" sound, as well as the sounds [i] as in beat and funny, and the [ɪ] sound as in wit and give.
**Please tell me what sounds are most challenging to you when you contact me. Depending on participants' needs, target sounds may be different from these.
Both parts will involve participation, and discussion/dialoguing is encouraged.
Methods and techniques for practicing, as well as carryover strategies will be discussed. Walk away with knowledge and practical strategies to start implementing into your everyday speech right away!
