Say It Right! Pronunciation and Voice Fluency
Do you find it a challenge to get your words out when explaining your points and thoughts in important situations such as interviews, presentations, meetings and phone calls? Do you become anxious, nervous, tense, lose track of where you are at, speak too fast or pause too much? Do people sometimes have trouble understanding you because English is your second language or because you use your mother tongue languages more frequently?
