What is Voice Training?

Your voice not only conveys your message – it can say a great deal about you. Like it or not, people make judgments based on the way you communicate; in short, your professional success will depend on your speaking skills. Our Voice Training programme is designed for both native and non-native speakers of English. The training can focus on very specific aims and can help you to:

  • speak with greater authority and vocal presence
  • overcome an ‘accent barrier’
  • improve your articulation to avoid ambiguity

Course content

Course content

Voice Training teaches you new sounds and speech habits. A typical session involves work on:

  • breathing and posture
  • tongue position when speaking
  • mouth muscularity
  • ability to reproduce and recognize RP* sounds

(*RP stands for ‘Received Pronunciation’. It is the term used for the standard British non-regional accent.)

The above involves relaxation exercises, vocal drills and work-outs. Attention will be paid not only to accent, but also to rhythm, stress and intonation patterns.

The benefits

Benefits of doing this course

As a general benefit, Voice Training will help you to:

  • speak with greater clarity and confidence
  • better understand and use the power and potential of your voice
  • extend your vocal range

Non-native speakers who possess a good command of English may choose Voice Training to soften an accent.

In all cases, Voice Training will enhance your presentation and public speaking skills. This will help you to communicate more effectively not only with large audiences but with small groups too.
