Fluent Communication Course

The Fluent Communication course focuses on helping participants build strategies for more quickly and smoothly communicating in English. Fluent speech requires a willingness to make mistakes, knowledge of strategies for covering vocabulary gaps, and practice developing the patterns and rhythms that make speaking easy. For many speakers of English as a second language who learned English using the translation method (still common in Asia), fluent speech can be a challenge. This is compounded in the workplace where performance pressures, organizational culture, and a fear of failure can cause employees to fear speaking up or result in speech that is slow or difficult to follow. This course is designed to help these employees increase the fluency and speed of their speech and build confidence in their English language ability.
