At the end of this course, the participant will be able to read any text with clear, accurate sounds and the intonation patterns that are most easily understood by North American listeners. After having completed all of the self-study listening materials, the participant will be able to follow business conversations at real speed. Following focused study of the vocabulary presented in each of the exercises hosted on the website, the participant will have a solid knowledge of the top 1000 business words and phrases.

All training materials are created in-house and are provided as part of the training package. Access to a computer or a device with a web camera is essential. The participant will be asked to provide the instructor with their Skype account name. The participant may be required to download Zoom onto their computer or device so that they will be able to access shared links as part of the course.

The live, on-line portion of the course sessions take place three days per week for four weeks following an initial 90-minute assessment session. Each session has a duration of 90 minutes. At the end of the one-month course, the instructor will provide the participant with lifetime login access to the course materials that support the live portion of the course and schedule a follow-up 90-minute session to be completed within a 3-month period. At this time a certificate of completion will be issued by English Pronunciation For Success™.

For each hour of live, on-line instructor-lead training, approximately one hour of self-study will be required to complete the practice materials.

Distance education

The guided discovery teaching method is used. The participant is asked to analyze sounds, facial expressions, spelling patterns, and phrasing based on a comparison of the target language to their first language. The teacher will model target sounds and explain how to judge the appropriateness of new choices based on the basic pattern of North American English. The participant will receive immediate feedback from the instructor on accurate and inaccurate sound creation. All new knowledge will be given a framework based on listening and speaking scenarios taken from real life.

 

The participant will be evaluated continuously throughout the 14-session live, on-line course. A recorded reading assessment created on the first and last sessions of the course allows for a comparison of awareness and skill levels. Suggestions for further training and study will be given based on the results of the final assessment. The participant will be encouraged to focus on specific modules on the self-study website based on this evaluation.

The participant must complete all twenty-one hours of the course.
