YOUR X Factor

You’re great at what you do.

You’ve reached a certain position in your field. You have the technical skills, the know-how, the experience, the guts. The whole package!

But you’ve hit a limit and that promotion isn’t coming. No one can explain why but you can feel the glass ceiling. Even though you know you could achieve more.

More often than not, this glass ceiling is made of COMMUNICATION SKILLS.

And a thick accent is the number one issue. 

 

You work in a language that is not your native one and you’re paying the price for it.

Lack of clarity, fluency and control over your speech reflects poorly on you and your professional abilities.

You’ve become aware it is limiting your CAREER ADVANCEMENT and you’re looking for solutions.

Here is it: a 1-on-1 PHONETICS COURSE  to get you the career you deserve!

Hesitating?

HOW WE DO IT

HYBRID METHOD

Based on a hybrid method, it combines a face-to-face training class and a supervised study program.

Because learning new sounds is just like sport, it’s a question of memory: muscle-memory.

This combination assures regular practice and therefore progress.

REGULAR PRACTICE

To improve pronunciation, there is no other way than regular practice.

How do I make sure you keep up with practicing?

Life can be challenging at times. That’s why we put into place a weekly routine to ensure regular practice.

Because I know that what makes a difference …

DEDICATED COACH

Between sessions,
I will continue to be your dedicated coach.

I will monitor your progress thanks to the recordings of your practice sessions you will send me.

You’ll receive feedback to help you “find” the sounds on your own and practice them the “right way”.

FAQ

Progress is bond to age, hearing capacities, spoken languages and PRACTICE. The more often you practice, the best chance  you have to see your accent improving quickly. Most clients get positive feedbacks after a couple of months into the program.

Your choice. The goal is for you to learn how to steer away from your native sounds and accentuation and produce sounds that are close enough to native ones to eliminate confusion and boost your oral skills.
