Accent Classes: improving your pronunciation skill

What should be the main goal of any pronunciation class or course? What are the kinds of exercises that will help you improve your pronunciation? First, the main goal of any Elocution/pronunciation course should be to focus on accent reduction, not accent elimination, which is technically impossible. Students should work on reducing areas of their pronunciation and enunciation that make it difficult for native speakers to understand them. Second, with this goal in mind, students need to be able to identify which areas of pronunciation and enunciation give them the most inaudibility; such as, vowel and consonant sounds, word and sentence stress, word reductions, linking, and intonation. Finally, you need to practice these structured exercises to extemporaneous speech in different situations, because practice makes perfect. Improving your pronunciation will take a lot of patience and commitment, but the end product - your unique, well developed voice - is worth it!

What is Public Speaking - Learn today!

Public Speaking (sometimes termed oratory or oration) is the process or act of performing a presentation (a speech) focused around an individual directly speaking to a live audience in a structured, deliberate manner in order to inform, influence, or entertain them. Public speaking is commonly understood as the formal, face-to-face talking of a single person to a group of listeners, either for school, workplace or our personal lies. It is closely allied to "presenting", although the latter is more often associated with commercial activity. Most of the time, public speaking is to persuade the audience. In public speaking, as in any form of communication, there are five basic elements, often expressed as "who is saying what to whom using what medium with what effects?" The purpose of public speaking can range from simply transmitting information, to motivating people to act, to simply telling a story. Good orators should be able to change the emotions of their listeners, not just inform them. Public speaking has several components that embrace such things as motivational speaking, leadership/personal development, business, customer service, large group communication, and mass communication. Public speaking can be a powerful tool to use for purposes such as motivation, influence, persuasion, informing, translation, or simply ethos. I also provide the course over SKYPE.

Accent Modification Course

"Accent reduction, also known as elocution, accent modification or accent neutralization, is a systematic approach for learning or adopting a new accent. It is the process of learning the sound system (or phonology) of a language or dialect. The method involves several steps, which include identifying deviations in the person's current speech from the desired accent (such as pronunciation, speech patterns, and speech habits), changing the way one uses the mouth, teeth, and tongue to form vowel and consonant sounds, modifying one's intonation and stress patterns, and changing one's rhythm. Using this method, individuals (such as those mastering a second language) may alter their speech to more closely resemble the accent of a certain group of people, and thus enhance the clarity of their communication with those people." I have worked extensively on developing a unique course which conquers all of the above, and this Course that I have devised has proved very successful. I have modified numerous accents and this has aided them in the careers and personal life. I also provide the course over SKYPE.

WHAT IS ELOCUTION?

Broadly speaking, the word “elocution” refers to one’s manner of speaking or oral delivery. Elocution is particularly used in reference to an orator’s manner of speech when speaking or reading aloud in public. Elocution can also refer to the study of proper public speaking, with particular attention paid to pronunciation, grammar, style, and tone. The Elocution Course I provide covers all of the above and more as described below: Elocution encompasses a number of important principles. These are commonly considered to be articulation, inflection, accent, voice, and gesture. Articulation refers to the speech sounds and their proper pronunciation. Inflection refers to the pitch or tone of the orator’s voice, and the modulation of these. Accent refers to the emphasis placed on a particular syllable, word, or phrase, in comparison to the lack of emphasis on other surrounding syllables or parts of the sentence. In terms of elocution, accent does not indicate any written marking or regional pronunciation of a particular language. Voice refers particularly to the quality, clarity and effectiveness of that which is being spoken or expressed. Gesture, of course, refers to any movement of the body that accompanies a spoken word, particularly a movement designed to emphasize or aid in the communication of the spoken word.

Transgender Voice "Feminization" Development -

Nothing gives you away faster than a voice that doesn't match your appearance. It's not about "how to talk or the way you speak like a woman", but rather "the way to sound female". Your voice is a muscle that can be controlled: In a female's voice the voice boxes vocal flaps are thinner and tighter, hence, the voice resonates at a higher pitch naturally. In the male voice box the vocal flaps are longer and thicker and resonate at a deeper pitch in the male voice range. With the course I have devised I can teach you how to lift the voice box at your control up to that higher position temporarily, so that, the vocal flaps thin out and tighten temporarily to resonate at a higher pitch naturally when you speak. This will then be your female voice range. What is covered in the course: PITCH: Raise the position of the laryngeal cartilage by changing your male base note to female. POSTURE: Men have larger lungs and can speak longer without taking a breath. Women have less breath capacity and tend to take more breathes when speaking. BODY LANGUAGE: Body Language is they way you move while you talk. In fact, it has an actual impact of how the voice itself will sound. By using the proper Body English while you speak, you can improve the femininity of your voice - even on the phone! RESONANCE: Is the amplification of your sound, now softer, but placed forward and out. PHRASING/MODULATION: Men tend to speak in a flat-footed, monotone way, not varying their tone much and saying as much as they can in one breath. Women modulate, or vary their tone, more. DYNAMIC RANGE: describes the difference between the highest highs and the lowest lows that a person uses while speaking. Men use a very narrow dynamic range, women use a much WIDER dynamic range, HENCE their voices have a "sing/song" effect. Men use a different technique for emphasis: they get louder or softer within a narrow range of tones. So, in conversation, a man will "punch" some words and hold back oth

Transgender Voice Development

I devised this course, so as to; provide voice and communication training for male-to-female (MtF) clients and for female-to-male (FtM) clients. In general, men and women communicate differently. For example, most men tend to speak with lower pitched voices, while women use higher pitched voices. Women often use more gestures when they speak. Men may use shorter sentences that get more to the point. Individuals who are transgender/transsexual often elect to have voice and communication therapy to help them use their voice in a safe way and communicate more like the opposite gender of that in which they were born. Benefits: A chance to practice vocal skills in a conversational context. <li class="MsoNormal" style="mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin

Speech Therapy for Children aged 5 - 7 and 8 - 18

This course helps young adolescents to develop their voice whilst eliminating any speech impediments. The course was devised on the basis of using drama exercises (as a template), because I dealt with a lot of students who don’t understand what is expected of them when correcting voice. When using drama exercises this helps them to understand (in laymen’s terms) all elements which constitutes correct speech. The exercises in the course focuses on combining an arrangement of concepts, which will help them, achieve great results.   Some Common Speech Disorders: Stuttering - interferes with fluent speech, Cluttering - makes speech difficult to understand, Articulation Disorders - lisping, cleft palate, Dysarthria - Paralysis, weakness or generally poor coordination of the muscles of the mouth, Speech Sound Disorder - Omissions, Substitutions, Distortions, Phonation Disorder - hoarse, raspy, or pitch changes, Resonance Disorders - Hypernasality and Hyponasality. I have had a lot of success with this course...I look forward to hearing from you soon!
