If you are a non-native English speaker, and learned English as an adult, you most likely speak with an accent. This is because the brain and mouth create sounds in your first language and have not "learned" to produce or even hear the unique sounds in a second language (English). The ability to communicate clearly either with your co-workers, clients, and even friends and family, depends on your ability to clearly pronounce important phonics/sounds within the English language. In this class you will learn to change the way you use the mouth, teeth and tongue in order to form vowel and consonant sounds, which will help your communication with others who speak English. There will be classroom lecture and work, including recording and listening to your speech and identifying those sounds to work on in order to be better understood by English speakers. Alma has many years experience teaching English as a Second Language while at the same time helping the students improve their accents, to better communicate with others.
