Who This Course Is For

Are you often asked to repast yourself? Do you have a hard time being understood in your personal or professional life? Are your reading and writing skills far superior to the way you speak?

In my 20+ years as a Voice & Speech Coach, I’ve seen how difficult it can be for the native Chinese speaker to sound “American.” The important L and R sounds, speaking with volume, and speaking smoothly are all elements you’ll learn in this course.

With practice, you’ll be speaking American English more clearly and smoothly than ever.
