MasterClass for Pronunciation and Accent Reduction

Recently we have seen a surge in demand for English pronunciation courses. Our MasterClass for Pronunciation and Accent Reduction is a highly tailored course aimed at English learners who have achieved a good level in English but find their communication compromised by their pronunciation. Some learners may have attained an advanced level of English, but need to fine-tune their pronunciation to achieve close to native-speaker production. For some, a neutral British accent may be particularly important.

This MasterClass recognises the importance of clear and accurate pronunciation in helping to achieve business objectives. It is delivered by well-qualifed and experienced specialist trainers using professional voice-coaching techniques.
