BRUSH UP YOUR ENGLISH!
 
 

Your own working knowledge of English in Business and the Media Industry and the resulting benefits to communication 
and confidence is only a step away. 
 
My 30-year experience is as opera/concert singer and professional narrator in the theatre, media and music industries.  
I have an extensive knowledge of English usage in various professional environments and enjoy finding solutions to 
today's inherent challenges for the native and foreign speaker of English as the so-called 'international' language as well as coaching professional singers in English as a sung language...  

Are You Making The Right Impression with Your Voice?

It’s not just what you say, how you say it is just as important.

Your voice can be one of your biggest assets when presenting. However, for many, it can often be a liability.

Your voice creates an immediate impression – either good or bad – from the moment you start to speak.

But why is the voice so important?

Your voice ‘says’ something about you.

It can help people believe in what you have to say or conversely it can start to undermine your message or make people doubt your credibility.

It takes skill to make full use of your voice; create the impact you really want; and be able to enjoy the powerful effect it can have on your audience.

And with help you can start to develop that skill to its true potential.

I‘ll help you get rid of natural bad habits.

Many people have developed bad vocal habits; from speaking too fast with a monotonous tone to mumbling and dropping the ends of their sentences.

On top of all this, when standing up and speaking in public, we have also to face the ultimate demon – nerves.

Nerves often have negative effects on your voice causing:

Dry throat and coughing...
Nervous swallowing...
Hesitant speech...
Shaky, nervous, thin sound...
Poor projection...
Over-loud, ‘harsh’ tone...
Speaking too fast and stumbling...

With my one-to-one guidance you develop the key vocal skills you need through simple exercises and by explaining how your voice works and how nerves can affect it.

It’s really important to help you overcome nerves and bad habits when you present.

An audience can’t listen easily to you if they feel nervous ‘for you’.

Learn to speak clearly and confidently with authority.

It’s important that the audience hears EVERY word you say so they can understand and remember what you’re saying. This is especially true when you and your audience are working with English as a second language!

If you speak too quickly you may find that you:

Lose track of what you’re saying...
Blur your words together...
Speak too quietly...
Become even more nervous...

...and finally the audience will completely lose track of what you tried to say!

I can help you develop skills to control your speed and clarity, so you don’t rush through your presentation and leave the audience trying to catch up.

Discover how to capture the audience’s interest.

Speaking for any length of time requires energy, stamina and passion. A speaker needs to have a relaxed, expressive and engaging voice.

A monotonous voice does little to inspire the audience.

By developing:

Your range of vocal expression...
Your control over the pace of your speech...
Your ability to sustain vocal energy...
Your ability to control your breathing...
Your ability to speak clearly...

...you’ll learn how to capture the audience’s attention and sustain their enthusiasm throughout your presentation.

Build presentation skills to influence your audience.

By developing these key vocal skills you’ll have a much stronger influence on your audience so that they:

Believe what you’re saying...
Remember what you’re saying...
Are inspired by what you’re saying...

...and then they can go out and act upon what you’ve just told them.

Become skilled at presenting.

For most people, advice like "just be yourself" to help you present better, is less than helpful. It‘s more likely to encourage you to fall back on all those bad habits you want to avoid.

Good presenters use a range of personal skills to support their message and create the right impact. And these key skills can be easily developed with the right training.

Even the people who appear to be "natural" when it comes to presenting, will normally have developed these skills over time to help them present with ease and stand out from the rest.

And with the right help, you can do it too.

"Englisch ist die Arbeitssprache" and how to avoid a 'Worse than Westerwave'* comparison

  

google it !*

"Englisch ist die Arbeitssprache" - well, yes, it is and as such here it is giving you the chance for your own working
knowledge of it – it’s only a step away.
“Hallo! I speak English – I learn eat in a book. How are you?” OK it’s what we heard 20 years ago on TV in ‘Fawlty
Towers’ and things haven’t changed much since then.

This is the real thing** and maybe it’s what you really need to make the most of your job, your applications, your
place in the international marketplace and to avoid a potential ‘Westerwave’.

Who?
I work in the theatre, media and music industries, I have an extensive knowledge of English usage and enjoy
teaching.
All ages, adults and children of which I have four charming bi/trilingual versions from the age of 6-22 of my own.
I have a good working knowledge of German and French but I keep my coaching sessions 100% in English. I am
patient and friendly yet firm and challenging. 

Where?
I have an easily accessible 'Unterrichtsraum' which is just 2 minutes out from Schottentor on trams 37-42.

What?
Bring your papers, books, essays and anything you want to work on; bring just yourself and your conversation and
we'll sort it out.

Come and spend an hour or two at a time in this 'Englischraum' and we'll bring your working English 'up to speed' -
nothing but the best from the best, maybe you've already tried the rest... I specialise in an intensive 'crash course'
for the best results.

How much? 
A bit more than your average Englischnachhilfe admittedly, but then, maybe here’s where to explore and benefit
from the difference.

Rates: from 30 euro per hour.

Looking forward to hearing from you... make that step.

You will not be wasting your money. 
 
 
 
 
 

** if what you are looking for is the chance to learn Standard, unaffected, clear and easily understood 'RP' 
('Received Pronunciation'), classic British English from England in an openly friendly, fun, relaxed and yet 
professional environment.
