Accent Reduction Classes

I have been speaking English as a second language for the last 25 years and always wondering why I still sound foreign.

Janette's detailed analysis of my speech pattern and skilful teaching methods made me understand how English sounds work.

All lessons achieve what they set out to do-explaining in ordinary language just how best English can be learnt and spoken.

Elocution Lessons

It has been amazing!

At the beginning of the course I lacked confidence in speaking. I have learned how to correct my speech, and gained confidence. I progressed rapidly through my elocution course which gave me the skills which I never knew I had within. I am very, very grateful.
