Speech Assessment

Why do you need an assessment?

Everyone has different goals and needs, so the assessment is crucial to determining your unique strengths and weaknesses in spoken English. After identifying the areas that are causing you problems, I can design a step-by-step personalized program to help you identify where to start, especially if you've been working on your own without success, so that you know how to fix the elements of English pronunciation you're struggling with. 

What happens during the assessment?

The assessment is divided into 5 main parts: introduction, reading passage, conversation, findings and FAQs. While you speak, I assess your oral communication skills in English, such as pronunciation, stress, rhythm and intonation. At the end of the assessment, you will know exactly what areas you need to improve and how you are going to achieve that.

Who is the assessment for?

The assessment is for you if…

 

  • You are a non-native speaker and speak English at an upper-intermediate level or above, but you still feel stuck and can’t communicate effectively.

  • You are a professional (immigrant) working or living in the US or another English-speaking country and you need to improve your oral communication skills in English for professional reasons.

  • You always wonder whether the other person is going to understand you or not because your pronunciation isn’t clear sometimes.

  • You have to repeat yourself on a regular basis because people say they don’t always understand what you are saying.

  • You want proven techniques to improve your oral communication skills in English and speak more clearly, fluently and confidently in every situation.

Is the assessment right for me?

The assessment is NOT for you if…

 

  • You are a beginner and your English level is below B2 on the CEFR scale (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

  • You are looking for general English lessons with an English teacher to work on other concepts and skills, such as grammar, reading, writing, etc.

  • You don’t use English or work in an English-speaking environment on a daily basis, so you don’t have a real need to improve your pronunciation.

  • You are looking for rushed last-minute results. Working on your pronunciation is a process that takes time, discipline and patience.

  • You don’t have a budget to pay for personalized coaching services and are looking for free content to work on your own.

What happens after the assessment?

After the assessment, you will…

 

  • Know exactly what areas are causing you problems and why you sound unclear to your listener(s), and how to overcome your obstacles and challenges when you speak English.

  • Receive a detailed PDF guide with a step-by-step personalized program to improving your oral communication skills in English, and overcoming your communication obstacles and challenges.

  • Understand what to do in order to speak English with more clarity, fluency and confidence so that your pronunciation is no longer an issue for you.

  • Get a mini e-book about the TH sound with audio and practice. This is a bonus lesson and it’s only available to you if you schedule a live assessment via Zoom.

Why work with me?

I’ve worked with non-native speaking students for almost 9 years, so I know what it's like to try to communicate in English. You probably…
 

  • Feel stuck whenever you’re about to speak English in public.

  • Have trouble expressing your ideas to your boss, colleagues and clients.

  • Have been living in an English-speaking country for years but you still get asked WHERE YOU ARE FROM!

  • Have to repeat yourself constantly because people don’t understand what you say.

 
But after working with me, you will…

 

  • Be able to communicate in English clearly and confidently.

  • Feel as comfortable in English as you feel in your native language.

  • Never be afraid to speak English in public again.

  • Work with a trained professional with an experienced ear, so you’re guaranteed that you will do everything the right way.
