Having trouble communicating in English as a second language? Are you asked to repeat what you just said very often, especially now that you are working remotely? Do you hesitate to speak up at a meeting?

This interactive workshop is for intermediate/advanced speakers of English who want to become more effective and confident while working virtually.

Come prepared to tell your story and share your experiences and observations with the group. Also, be prepared to give a short introduction of yourself and/or your business. What you say and how you say it, in English, does matter.

You will learn:

  • Accent reduction strategies
  • Key presentation techniques

to improve your story, your business, your brand and your ability to network while working at home.

We will focus on the Music of American English and work with your key vocabulary.
