Our Students - Who
benefits from SpeechSchool.TV?
SpeechSchool.TV works with ESL and native
speakers around the world. Our learners come from many
different backgrounds, including the areas below. If you fit
into one of these groups, it is probable that like thousands of others you will
find SpeechSchool.TV training programs of great benefit:
ESL Speakers and Immigration:
Learning to speak natural English is important for 'English as a
Second Language' students. SpeechSchool.TV programs provide a
regular, effective and affordable way to learn to speak English
just like a native speaker and be accepted in
English speaking societies around the world.
Many immigrants to English speaking countries are highly qualified and
very skilled, which is why they are welcomed. Yet some struggle to find
work in their field because their spoken English sounds so different.
This reason is one factor behind the all too common rejection - "the candidate
lacks local experience."
The SpeechSchool.TV Accent Training program helps to NEUTRALISE speech over
time, allowing migrants to sound more 'local' and better fit into their
removing barriers and reducing stress.
● Native English Speakers:
A recent BBC survey of 5,000 speakers of English as their
first language found that 59% wished they spoke differently.
In the US it has been estimated that 1 in 20 native speakers have
some form of language impairment.
SpeechSchool.TV helps people
of all ages develop refined neutral accents that are
pleasing to listen to, overcome ingrained speech habits
such as stuttering and increase their confidence in speaking to
others (which can be extremely empowering). The
courses have proven particularly useful for individuals
seeking professional advancement.
Tertiary Institutions and Schools:
Universities and schools in the English speaking world
often find that up to a third of their pupils speak English as a
second language. In some cases this can present difficulties
in being understood when presenting to staff or working with other
SpeechSchool.TV offers sustained programs that
students can be directed to use in their own time to achieve a
natural flow in English speech, improving their
ability to work within the learning environment. Also on offer
is a dedicated public speaking and Effective
Communication program which all students will benefit from.
SpeechSchool.TV can also
be a very useful addition to Home School programs
seeking structured learning support.
