The Sound of English I™: Rewiring to Pronounce Keywords Correctly


Course Objective

In this 2-day intensive programme, participants will learn to pronounce important English words correctly as well as their own frequently used words.

Course Methodology

This programme focuses on practical exercises. Three categories will be covered - personally mispronounced words, commonly mispronounced words and mispronounced words in one’s personal vocabulary. These words will be categorized to aid memory. The participants will be drilled until they are able to pronounce the words correctly and instinctively. The overlaps in these 3 categories will further reinforce the lesson.
