Public Speaking

Do you need to give oral presentations in English and are afraid? Are you nervous to speak in English in a formal setting? Are you ill at ease with clients? Are you being turned down for jobs or promotions? Then this course is for you.

Our speech specialists will give you a free diagnostic test to determine your particular problems and difficulties in English. After the evaluation, the specialist will set up a specific curriculum for you. If pronunciation is an issue, you will learn the precise pronunciation of sounds by learning how to form the mouth and facial muscles correctly through targeted pronunciation drills, free conversation and advanced readings from professional articles or work-related materials. You will study and learn proper intonation as well as how changes in intonation can change the meaning. You will receive feedback and constant correction on proper grammar, word usage and correct pronunciation, intonation and voice. You will be asked to write and give real-life presentations and speeches which will be practiced repeatedly until they become comfortable for the speaker and understandable for the listener.

The class sessions are videotaped so that you will be able to see and hear yourself as well as the subtleties of the corrections made in class. This course is recommended as a private class in order to receive the detailed attention necessary to correct the student's specific problems, but can be done in a small group. This course is excellent for those who want to speak confidently, refine their language abilities and bring their oral presentation skills up to professional standards.
