This is a subject specific course focused on declarative speaking. It reduces traits commonly associated with “California English” such as reducing the use of upspeak (questioning tone), vocal fry (rough or inaudible vocal quality) and eliminating junk speech and verbal clutter (“like”, “you know”, “kinda” etc.). This course will increase your ability to speak declaratively in a succinct and crisp manor. It is not a gender specific course and is designed for both men and women.
Duration: 6 private sessions; 50 minutes each, conducted weekly.
