This course is designed to help students gain an understanding of how poor pronunciation impacts workplace communication and how clear pronunciation can increase their confidence and comprehensibility, and positively impact others' perception of the value of their contribution to meetings and discussions. This course is not intended to reduce or eliminate accents, but to assist students with becoming more clearly understood by others in an English-speaking workplace.
