Upon demand, CommuniClear Global is going virtual. From early April, we’ll be offering our successful 8-week accent modification training program via Skype. Sessions are scheduled to meet four days/week in 30 or 60-minute blocks. Consistency is critical for this type of training, and we’re here for you!
Eager to get started on your spoken English before the program begins?
We recommend starting to pay attention to the voice quality of other speakers. This is where we always begin. As you watch or listen to someone speaking, ask the following questions: Are they loud or soft speakers? Do they speak monotone or with pitch variation? Do you hear any popping, hissing, or buzzing sounds? How about humming? Do you hear a constant humming sound in their speech? (It’s ok if you don’t. Just start paying attention.)
Here’s a great app to check out
Stitcher. This app serves as a hub for online radio shows and podcasts. What’s great about it is that it offers you categories of topics to chose from, and from there, recommends podcasts which you might find interesting. Sample topics include Popular & Trending, Business & Industry, News & Politics, Education, Technology, Sports, Lifestyle & Health, International, etc. This amazing resource allows you to not only bookmark specific podcast programs but to also store specific episodes. You then have the opportunity to listen to the episode again or at a later time. Stitcher offers you a real sound wonderland!
