LIMITED TO 8 Students
The class is designed for the student whose first language is not English and/or the student who is bilingual but has a strong foreign native language accent. This class will enable the student to isolate and identify English sounds not in their native language and practice producing these sounds in a natural, fluid manner so as to minimize their native accents. The student will practice breathing techniques which will support clearer pronunciation and articulation. The International Phonetics Alphabet (IPA) will be introduced and used to correct habitual speech problems.
The student will then transition to practicing storytelling and delivering monologues, concentrating on clear speech with minimal native language pronunciation issues, integrating proper phrasing, inflection and rhythm. The results of these identifying and practice skills will enable the student to undertake speaking English with more confidence and ease. This class will be taught in both online and in-person sessions. Please choose carefully when applying.This class may be repeated for 50% off*; Private one-on-one Coaching is also available: $95/hr or $425./pkg of 5 hrs
