improve. Initial improvement is seen in clearer pronunciation and
better diction, although not always habitual at this point.

speech. The students have more confidence in how to shape their sounds,
pronounce words, and speak more clearly with appropriate delivery for
Standard English. Many of the desired speech patterns are becoming
habitual. Increased understanding of the culture and idiom intrinsic to
spoken English develops.

speech. The student is able to speak significantly more clearly with
minimal hindrance of a strong accent or speech impairment. Strong
