Mainly for adult and professional learners, this a one-time 60-minute face-to-face session dedicated to identifying your needs as a first-time learner of English. It includes an English Assessment exam to help determine your level and assist in diagnosing your current weaknesses with grammar/speaking. What better way to understand your linguistics needs than through the ears of a Native English speaker and trainer?! Find out your weaknesses and strengths so that you can build a plan for yourself. If you are an INDIVIDUAL for private courses, we may meet at a café or bakery. If you are a BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL or GROUP for Career English courses, we may meet at: -your office within central city limits.
This is a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you! KEEP IN MIND that your grammar must meet a 7-page assessment requirement which will be administered during the first session; otherwise, you will have to book the class titled "English Development with Native Speaker (Pronunciation, ESL, Business, TOIEC/TOEFL/IELTS Prep)".
In this class we may choose from the following towards literacy exploration and development: -current news articles -reports -biographies -reviews/critic reviews -books/ magazines -or literature of your choice We can also develop: -curriculum vitaes (resumes) -cover letters (presentation letters), -formal letter writing, -creative writing, -in-kind donation letters, -and related documents! (This includes punctuation, salutation and apostrophe usage in writing.) My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson with limitless opportunities to examine various styles of writing which may be practical for a wide array of needs.
Learn different recording techniques & tips towards quality voice and audio recordings, and develop in-studio efficiency in a relaxed and fun environment. We can instruct you on how to dub and layer vocals, ad-lib and produce quality sound that is specific to voice type and vocal register. Additionally, this class can teach you how to quickly develop a fluid communicatory dynamic with new sound engineers or visa versa, encourage productive and precise communication from sound engineer to recording artist. Other insights could include consultation for Future Sound Engineers and Recording Artists such as: where to make their sounds fuller, rounder, where to take breaths and/or change rhythms or shorten syllables where needed; how to take different creative songwriting or beat-building approaches to music. This course is only given in English. This is for individuals that are striving towards voice quality and enhanced composition in the English language. This is not a voice class nor a language class. It is a tutorial class for individuals who already have talents or aspirations and professionals seeking or in-training!
