‌Effective Communication - Speaking & Pronunciation Class  | 10 Week Class

This course will introduce students to the basics of communicating and speaking in both one-on-one situations as well as larger groups.

By presenting speeches and presentations both in groups and individually, students will learn about the significant role that diction, intonation, emotion and body language play in successfully communicating with others. They will also have an opportunity to assess and compare the differences in communications and speaking from a variety of different cultures. Students will also learn correct pronunciation and diction.
