Courses and workshops.
One of my favorite things to do is working with groups to develop a skill or set of skills. In my courses and workshops, we focus on learning-by-doing in a light, fun atmosphere.
Speaking for Business
In this highly-interactive class, clients are led through a 12-week program designed to clear pronunciation errors, and increase fluency and confidence when speaking English in business settings. Using real-world corporate topics, each lesson is targeted to the most common situations where miscommunication happens. Recommended level: B2-C1. Minimum 4 participants.
Over the course of 12 weeks, we cover all 24 lexical sets and 44 sounds of English as spoken in North America. In each lesson, we go from individual sounds to phrases to conversation. The activities are quick and designed to train your ear as well as your voice to help you hear more and sound more like a native speaker.

The workshop was very professional and besides learning about public speaking and the structure of the speech I also gained confidence. It will be useful knowledge even for the future interviews and communication. Alex helped me to understand the value of sharing my story and I would never be able to do it alone!
