The English Pronunciation program consists of a series of four 16-hour courses for intermediate and advanced English speakers who want to improve their overall pronunciation to be better understood by native speakers. In this program, an experienced instructor will work closely with students to address all aspects of speech. A pre-assessment will be conducted with each student to analyze his or her speech patterns. Using this information, courses will be tailored to individual and group needs. The format of the courses is highly interactive, with the instructor guiding students as they practice vocally during class time.
