Elocution

Is your accent impeding easy and natural communication? Our aim is to soften or reduce those sounds which are difficult to understand, to work on clarity of diction and to help you use standard English intonation patterns.

If you want to speak fluently, clearly and confidently, we can help you.

We recommend a course of 6 sessions, with the option to have more (or less) if appropriate.

Basic breakdown of a typical 6 week course

  • Introduction
  • Identifying issues
  • Simple vowels
  • Diphthong vowels
  • Vowel re-cap
  • Consonants
  • Putting it all together

We use tongue twisters and articulation exercises to strengthen the muscles involved in speech. We will give you techniques and tips on how to speak more clearly, including how to be more precise with diction and speak more slowly. We will also cover breathing and forward placement of the voice.
