Improve your clarity in speaking English.
As a second-language English speaker, pronunciation can be difficult to master. Especially as English spelling and pronunciation is so complex. This unique spelling system can be complicated and overwhelming for second-language speakers to understand and apply.
In this course, you’ll learn detailed vowel and consonant sounds with tailored articulation practise. Based on your specific accent and needs we’ll focus on improving your clarity and ability to be understood by those around you.
By the end of the course you will become more assertive and develop a sense of credibility for all your future professional ventures
