1-week intensive: Pronunciation and Performance:

Develop your own pronunciation at the level of sounds, words and connected speech. Learn to feel and sense what you are doing in your mouth so that you can critique and change your pronunciation as much as you wish, and help your learners to do the same. At the same time, enjoy a complete workout with the Sound Foundations chart, get constant feedback and support, gain confidence, and personalise a range of teaching techniques. At the same time develop your performance skills through presentation and storytelling, to bring about listener engagement and enjoyment through your use of stress, intonation, voice tone, pause and fluency and body language.
