'A great and informative course - What a good idea of Serena's to do a speech course where the learner can participate and learn how to speak better.'

'Though I have been studying the speech sounds of English for quite sometime, there are still many new things to learn from this course. Thank you, Ms. Greenslade.'

This course takes you through vowel and consonant sounds, I explain how each sound is made, how it should sound and then there is an exercise for each sound. Each letter has it's own lesson so you can jump around and pick on the sounds you  need to improve.

Help your child to speak clearly

'There are many parents who want to teach their child or children to speak in English, but they do not know how to go about doing it. If you are one of these parents, this course is highly recommended to you because it contains many useful tips and sound advice on how to encourage your child to speak, not only clearly, but more. I especially like the part where the instructress guides us on how to encourage a child to speak in sentences, rather than giving one-word answers. I found that many parents and teachers who are non-native English speakers have problems in this area. They do not know how to expand a conversation and as a result of that, children do not have enough exposure to the sounds and rhythm of the language, which is crucial to mastering the language. I think this course provides the missing pieces that could help many parents and teachers to improve in this area. Thank you Ms. Greenslade, for putting this course together.' Course review by Soon Kheng, Chan

As parents we spend hours encouraging children to walk (often before they are ready), to count and to read but we rarely spend time actively encouraging them to speak clearly. I don't mean correcting how a word is pronounced, 'no, it's not oppolit, it's opposite' (a word I had trouble with as a child) I mean teaching them to speak in sentences. We assume that because we talk all day every day our children will pick it up. 

This course will show you how to help children, how to correct them, how to encourage them to speak in sentences and how to have fun with sounds. The methods used in this course can be used to help children who aare just learning to speak or older children who just lack clarity or confidence.

How to recite 'Daffodils' by William Wordsworth

This course is not an English Literature course. I have been reciting from memory and reading out lohow to read aloud  poetry for the last 50 years - I started very young! This course will show you and explain to you how to make the poetry sound interesting. How to make the importnat words stand out, how to be clear and expressive. We will not wonder why certain words were used instead of other words - we will take, almost at face value, the words on the page and make them sound convincing.

What people say.....

You are a "Guru" (teacher) in the true sense of the word, as you impart and share your knowledge in totality, and I'm lucky to have you as a teacher. Kavita.

I would like to thank you for helping me have confidence in my speech today. It is because of you I did much better than I have before when presenting as speech. I was a little shaky, but other than that my voice sounded fine and I pronounced every word slowly and with emphasis on those that I wanted people to hear! Elections are tomorrow. Without you, this would not have happened! You are an inspiration! Thank you so much, Joe from New York

At the end of last term my son went for head boy and delivered an amazing speech, something we never imagined he would put himself forward for. Many of the teachers complimented him and were taken aback by his confidence and presence, he buzzed with excitement for days afterwards and said he loved speaking in public. It is through all your hard work that he has this turn around in his approach to speaking and for this we will be forever grateful. Elaine
