Course Description

Fine Tune Your Accent

Are you confident that your message is being heard and understood as it is intended? This workshop focuses on pronunciation to help participants develop clear, comprehensible English to better communicate in US professional environments. Participants will learn and practice research-proven techniques valuable for speakers from all language groups. Through in-class work, participants will become alert to their own individual errors and will learn how to continue even beyond the workshop to practice and implement the techniques learned.
