Effective Speaking Course Effective Speaking Course

With this course: Effective Speaking, I teach you how to reflect your own personality whilst at the same time speaking with confidence and clarity. Your vocal sound and speech content can reveal your emotional state. For example; if your self esteem is low your voice will have a hesitancy, and sentences have little volume; whereas, if you are confident it shows in the way you command your voice and incorporate superb Elocution. Various Aspects of Effective Speaking I cover: Accent Reduction - heavy accents can mar communication, Finding your vocal tones - pitch, resonance and tone (emotions) can bring any speech alive, The effect on your voice when using the correct breathing method for speech, Vocal production - enunciation and pronunciation to promote eloquence and clarity when speaking.

Miscommunication between Colleagues? Miscommunication between Colleagues?

In a culturally diverse society, miscommunication between colleagues with heavy native accents can occur on a daily basis... I have a 100% guaranteed cost-effective solution! I have devised an Elocution a.k.a Accent Reduction Course which caters to the below mentioned: FIRST, the main goal is to focus on accent reduction, not accent elimination, which is technically impossible. I work on reducing areas of their pronunciation and enunciation that make it difficult for native speakers to understand them. SECOND, I 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, I give them structured exercises to practice 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! SKYPE LESSONS AVAILABLE Act now, Contact me today!

Accent Modification Course 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.

Transgender Voice &quot;Feminization&quot; Development - 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

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.

What is Public Speaking - Learn today! 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.

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

Learn how to speak and sound like a woman! Learn how to speak and sound like a woman!

So, how does speech therapy work for someone who’s transitioning? What does it involve? You come once a week, sometimes twice a week if you're really eager to speed things up, and you do different vocal exercises. Pitch is one of the most important markers. Men on average speak at 110-120 [Hertz], gender neutral is 145-165, and women are 210-220. In most cases the goal is to try to get to gender neutral, which basically means that if you called somebody on the phone, and they speak in what’s known as the gender neutral pitch, you probably wouldn't be able to tell if they were a man or a woman. So that’s the first piece, but along with that, they have to learn other things, like posture and speech intonation. Speech intonation is how much your voice goes up and down in a sentence. Men tend to speak in a very monotone, even tone. Women speak in many, many different pitches; as they speak they go up and down, they go high, they go low. So that’s really important–a person who’s transitioning needs to learn how to use that range in their voice. They also practice moving the resonance of their voice up higher. Men speak in their chests. If you’re a man and you say a word, if you put your hand on your chest you’ll feel a vibration. If you’re a woman, you speak in your face. So that’s another thing they try to work on—they move that resonance from deep in their bodies higher up. Another thing is women speak more precisely. They enunciate their words. Men don’t do that as well, so men actually have to learn to articulate their words more precisely to sound like a believable woman. Volume will also be something to look at as a man will just speak with greater volume—so he’ll speak louder—and a woman will tend to speak higher, tend to raise her pitch higher. The problem with just going with pitch, even though it’s a very important m

LIFE COACHING LIFE COACHING

Life coaching is a talk therapy where you gain a greater understanding of yourself. LC aims to help the individual find their own way forward and allow them to be their authentic self.  Often we can get caught up in what’s expected of us or how society dictates we should be rather than ensuring our own personal needs are met.  People come to LC for a number of reasons such as – To offload their thoughts and issues, to solve a specific issue, to improve their current circumstances, to cope better with life, to explore their inner selves, to cope with anxious thoughts and feelings, to gain greater self awareness, to improve their relationships with others, to move forward if they are feeling stuck, to find out who they are etc. Talking openly in a safe environment can help you begin to piece together the parts of you that are most important and it can allow you to become more self aware.  For example, there may be times when we display unwanted behaviours as a way of protecting ourselves.  By being aware of our defence mechanisms and what triggers them, we can begin to live in a happier and more balanced way by not allowing these behaviours to develop. Added awareness can often lead to us wanting to make positive changes and sometimes, the very smallest of change can have great effects.  For example, being aware of the tone you use when talking to others and understanding the likely reaction you receive can allow you to alter this and observe the difference this makes.  By talking, it allows you to process more clearly and deeply.  By having a professional with you, it can allow you to look at things you may be missing, take on board a different view point and allow you to delve deeper beneath the surface. What kinds of problems can you talk to a Life Coach about? Relationship difficulties - Family and friends, collea
