Speaking Voice Training
Unpleasant voice qualities such as nasality, throatiness or shrillness can cause listeners to disregard your message. A strong voice commands attention, increasing your presence. A rich, resonant voice tone compels others to respond positively. Learn to develop a strong speaking voice with a rich, resonant tone.
Diction & Enunciation Training
Poor diction, known as mumbling, diminishes your impact on listeners. Good diction (proper pronunciation of the consonant sounds of English) allows others to understand you clearly. Learn to pronounce the sounds of American English so that your speech is clear and easy to understand.
Accent Reduction Programs
Global professionals who are in roles that require speaking English for business often have a strong grasp of the English language, but heavy accents may interfere with their ability to be clearly understood when communicating crucial information. Learn to correctly pronounce the specific sounds of English that give you a heavy accent so you can be more easily understood when you speak English.
