Free Pronunciation Workshops

Do you have trouble pronouncing some of the common words and phrases from your RRC program? 

Are you shy to speak up in class because you are worried people might not understand you? 

Do you want to get more rhythm in your spoken English?

If you answered yes, consider joining a free Pronunciation Workshop.

These workshops give you:

  • Practice pronouncing and correctly using common vocabulary from the programs at RRC
  • A chance to record your voice and receive individual feedback on your pronunciation strengths and weaknesses
  • Individualized exercises designed to help you with your pronunciation weaknesses
