A crash course for educators, leaders and professionals who are ready to speak with eloquence and confidence.
Is your spoken English a concern to you and/or your bosses?
Do people misunderstand what you say when you speak?
Does your mother tongue interfere with your spoken English?
Yes? Then read this… There are several reasons adults do not get to pronounce English words right. I once had a friend who was brilliant as an Accountant but could not make three statements without mispronouncing at least five words in English. He grew up in a village and got to study at one of Nigeria’s top five (5) universities at the age of 18. His impressive CV got him an interview with a multinational and that job had the potential to completely change his life. After the interview, my friend called to tell me that he lost the opportunity on the spot because of his poor pronunciation skills. He said he was told to repeat what he said a lot because the interview panel was multicultural – there were two Europeans, a Philipino and two Nigerians – and they just could not make out what he was saying well. The repetitions gave his interviewers a negative impression of him and they asked politely if he had ever thought to polish his speech. He came to me for help and after this intensive course, he became a better English speaker and was confident. He got another job the week after the course.
