Good pronunciation is a prerequisite for successful communication. Good pronunciation can help to avoid misunderstandings and to adequately convey the intended message.
Pronunciation training teaches the basics of intonation (speech rhythm, melody and emphasis in word and sentences and includes extensive practice of German sounds. The aim is to improve articulation, particularly of those sounds with which many students of German language struggle, such as »r, sch, ch …« as well as teach specific aspects of »German pronunciation« (e.g. vowel length).
A sound and strong voice is of great importance for people whose work involves a lot of talking. Unfortunately, daily demands can put an enormous strain on the voice.
Coaching in the economical use of speech can prevent serious damage to the vocal cords. Our aim is to provide participants with an improved self-awareness and a better understanding of their own voice. Learning speaking techniques greatly improves the robustness of the voice and strengthens expression.
