Upcoming Free BESIG Events – June 2013

1. Free workshop Sunday June 9th – Developing presentation skills using free speech visualisation technology with me!

Session Blurb:
We all know that delivery makes a presentation, so why is voice training – an essential component of Business English – often overlooked?

Speech visualisation technology can help Business English teachers improve their learners´pronunciation by clearly illustrating a learner´s voice on a computer screen, giving learners an invaluable tool to better manipulate their speech more independently.

This session will show you how to use free speech visualisation technology, and apply it to enhance your learners´ intonation, pitch range and sentence stress for delivering effective and engaging English presentations.

At the end of the session, we will work together to offer solutions to any challenges found and to create additional activity ideas. All participants will be given a handout including supplementary speech visualisation tools, as well as the sessions´ tasks and activities.
