Facilitator: Ms Kelly Chopard
Date: 11 July 2012
Time: 9.00am - 5.00pm
Duration: 8 Hours
The course aims to equip non-Standard English speakers with the verbal skills to ‘sound’ words correctly, so they can be easily understood at meetings, business and social gatherings, conferences, at work and when they travel.
Learning to speak Standard English is a worthy goal. ‘The Speak Good English Campaign’ is a national effort to promote Standard English. You will benefit, as you will be able to interact confidently with Standard English speakers, especially in the workplace.
You will be in a position to help others eradicate the pronunciation errors you learnt at the course and promote the belief that speaking Standard English is a worthwhile goal.
At the end of the course, you should be able to:
- Use the skills learnt to make sense of phonics
- Isolate examples of letters that represent specific ‘sounds’ in words and ‘sound’ them correctly
- Accurately ‘sound’ more than 100 words that are difficult for non-Standard English speakers to pronounce
- Pronounce vowels and consonants correctly
- Benefit from the experiences of the interviewees featured in the videos
- Improve your test score at the end of the course
