About this course:

Clear English pronunciation is difficult even for some native speakers. A regional or foreign accent is often a handicap in business. Precise articulation is essential for increasing employee productivity, customer confidence, and effectiveness of presentations. This workshop helps individuals who speak with a non-native or regional American dialect develop the skills they need for pronouncing American English. Professionals who are proficient in English grammar and vocabulary but find that they are still misunderstood can learn to distinguish the sounds of English and train their speech muscles to produce those sounds. 
Prerequisites
TOEFL score of 550 or equivalent evidence of fluency.
