UCAR ESL seminar: How to fix English Speech Mistakes & Clear Talk Mastery Program

Dr. Antonia Johnson from Clear Talk Mastery, 16 March 2012, Friday, FL1, 1001, noon-1:00pm.

Thanks to speech habits we learned growing up and a lifetime of practice, one of the easiest things most of us do is our ordinary talk.  But those same habits and all that practice cause errors when we try to speak a new language.  Whatever your native tongue – Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, etc. --, what you already have learned creates special obstacles when you switch to speaking English.  Mistakes are likely.

Fortunately, there are ways to overcome the mistakes.  From years of working with people from many different cultures, Dr. Antonia Johnson knows what seven mistakes are most likely to happen, and she knows how to fix every one of them.  Her state-of-the-art information includes new insights from her most recent teaching experiences in 2011 and 2012. 

She wants to help you learn and use what she knows to get past the obstacles you face when you want to talk clear English.  She will also explain the two critical non-verbal behaviors that affect people’s impression of you.  

Dr. Johnson will describe the new Clear Talk program to improve English speaking communication and the exciting innovations for 2012.  Bring your questions!  Questions and answers are high priority!
