CPAC is offering a Pronunciation Training Program that will begin on March 24, 2015 until June 9, 2014

This program is a 12 week training program designed to address the specific difficulties of non-native speakers in verbal communication. It is an intensive course conducted in a small group setting with intensive interaction and individual attention, allowing each participant to target his/her own issues to reduce accent and improve voice quality. 

Participants are required to demonstrate a certain level of competency in English (CLB 6 and up) and have the motivation to improve. Attendance at class will help you build awareness – the first step towards change. Commitment to home practice is crucial to success. Concepts will be reviewed in class and distributed in handouts. There are in-class exercises as well as practice homework.

About the Instructor:

In her career, Carolyn has taught students of all ages, from primary to university to working professionals, including teaching academic ESL at the pre-university level, and pronunciation courses at both the University of Manitoba and of Toronto.
