Success in our society depends upon the ability to communicate clearly and effectively. Many U.S. citizens speak English, but lack the proficiency to communicate clearly with others.
THE COMPTON P-ESL PROGRAM provides a method for modifying a foreign accent in order to be better understood in conversation as well as in their profession. Through the use of this program, clear and effective communication can be achieved.
Program Description and Overview
|The Compton P-ESL Program begins with a personal analysis of the client’s speech, which will determine exactly how their pronunciation varies form Standard American English. The client then learns to discriminate between different speech sounds with special emphasis placed on:
- Complete Word Production
- Voice Production
The client will then practice the techniques in conversational speech and oral presentations.
