Summer is finally in full swing in Chicago. For some, this is a perfect time to “level up” their spoken English. By “level up,” I mean one or more of the following:
- Pronouncing work words used on a daily basis more accurately
- Sounding more confident and approachable in any situation
- Being better understood from the start
Let me ask: Is there something that you’d like to spend a little time preparing for or getting better at when it comes to speaking in English? Perhaps for an interview or a conference presentation? Maybe you would like to communicate in spoken English more effectively in meetings.
Upcoming Chicago Loop English Pronunciation Skills & Accent Modification Training Programs
I’ll be running a few programs in the Chicago Loop this Summer and Fall that you might be interested in.
One program is an 8-week Advanced English Pronunciation Skills program. I’ve run this course in one form or another (in-person/videoconference, traditional/flip, private/group, academic/corporate) over the past 15 years. Every year, I update, upgrade, adjust, tweak to keep what I do in line with what I see/hear works and what makes sense for any given client or group. It’s a carefully-sequenced program that’s designed for an efficient (and engaging) training process.
The other program is a 1-month Vocal Presence & English Pronunciation Skills workshop. This is admittedly a bit new. For the past year, I’ve been integrating more vocal presence techniques into my English pronunciation & accent modification programs. It’s been a lot of fun to hear the positive impact that these techniques have had on my clients’ spoken English. Some immediately sound more confident as they also produce a more connected sound. That is, a sound which in turn helps with their English rhythm. Others simply enunciate and articulate the sounds of words more clearly.
If you’re thinking about an upcoming interview, public speaking event, or scheduled meeting AND you would like to speak in English with more clarity, ease, and efficiency, keep reading.
