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

The areas that you can expect to cover during a typical course
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.
