Ms. Pronunciation has been developed to equip students of all ages to succeed in a competitive era. Existing courses target some but not all of the principles that are practiced in this school. They use one or two methods, not four, to teach oral language skills. Therefore learning is slower and bad habits are more difficult to reprogram. This often leave students disheartened and over or underwhelmed. Ms. Pronunciation reinforces learning by four, to provide greater opportunity to comprehend, store and retrieve information.
With the dawn of professional and social demands for world class English, an edge in communication knowledge is a real advantage. The curriculum addresses oral language gaps to develop speaking skills that are unrefined by mainstream education and natural acquisition. This is achieved by critically and dynamically teaching the art of speaking with the use of four major disciplines in the pursuit of English speaking mastery, fluency and effectiveness. The aim is to instill good communication habits to provide students with more wings and more opportunities.
GOOD COMMUNICATION HABITS
- confidence in public speaking
- communication etiquette
- good pronunciation
- correct use of language styles
- appropriate use of language
- oral social skills
- expressive language exchange
