"This course made me question  assumptions I make about peoples understanding of all aspects of spoken language, regardless of how fluent they may first appear."

What you'll learn

If you have already attended 'How to speak to learners of English' then you already know how to unlock your English for people with a low level of English. What this workshop shows you is how to unlock your English in a more subtle way for colleagues who speak English fluently but still experience the occasional misunderstanding in the workplace.

 

You will learn-

  • Why people can still struggle even when they're fluent

  • Which situations are hardest for them

  • What YOU sound like

  • How to make your speech more accessible

  • How to run inclusive meetings
