This in-depth speech evaluation will identify your specific strengths and weaknesses in all areas of spoken English. We will then pinpoint areas of pronunciation that need assistance and plan a program based on your specific needs and goals. There is no discount for speech assessments.
Speaking Your Best 7-Week Pronunciation Course
This pronunciation course consists of 7 one-hour private classes using either Skype or telephone. During each class, you will learn how to form accented sounds correctly and practice saying them in words, sentences, and conversational speech. You should expect to learn a minimum of 2-3 sounds per week. Following each class, you will receive a homework assignment, outlining activities to complete for that class.
When you purchase a 7-week accent reduction course, you will receive unlimited usage to Speaking Your Best Online (SYB Online), which is Speaking Your Best's website for communication skills practice. In addition, each HFC student who purchases a 7-week pronunciation course will also receive unlimited continued access to Speaking Your Best Online (SYB Online), even after your course has been completed! You will also be able to maintain contact with Cheryl via audio files and email to maintain what you learned during your course and continue your speech improvement.
Regular price: $650
HFC student price: $600
Pay as you go classes
Single classes are designed for those individuals who are interested in taking 1-5 classes. You can purchase one class at a time to work on specific sounds that you have identified as weaknesses in your speech without having to have a speech assessment.
Individuals who register for pay as you go classes will have access to SYB Online for as long as they take classes, but will not have continued access once classes are completed. They will, however, be able to correspond with Cheryl via audio files and emails after classes end to continue to receive feedback and support with their pronunciation skills.
