MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.

English Course Which Will Make You More Desirable to Employers
If you have ambitions to become an international businessperson, it’s essential that you’re able to speak English fluently. Even if you’re not thinking of living and working abroad, that doesn’t mean you won’t find English a helpful language to put on your CV. There may well be plenty of English-speaking multinational corporations with offices in your home country. What’s more, careers that involve lots of travel or international exposure, use English as their official language, and many employers in these sectors are likely to require evidence of a certain level of proficiency in English before they will consider employing you. This means that if you can speak English, you’ll find that you have a greater number of possible careers to choose from. Have I convinced you yet? If you’ve been inspired to learn English, consider enrolling in my course!

Suzi
Business English - Improve your English skills for work
FOR ENGLISH DESCRIPTION SCROLL DOWN ** Bonjour Tutti, Je m'appelle Suzi et je suis professeur d'anglais pour étrangers depuis plus de 10 ans. Mes cours s’adressent aux professionnels, aux lycéens et aux universitaires qui ont besoin d'une méthode de travail adaptée à leurs besoins ! Grâce à ma riche expérience dans l’enseignement, je peux rapidement sentir l'approche qui vous convient le mieux. Très ouverte d’esprit, mes cours sont ludiques, divertissant et surtout efficaces. Certains élèves préfèrent avoir des cours de conversation, gagner en confiance et enrichir leur vocabulaire. Alors que d'autres étudiants préfèrent les structures grammaticales et le matériel visuel. Dans tous les cas, je m’adapte rapidement à vos besoins et c’est ensemble que nous construisons nos leçons. Un peu sur mon parcours : j'ai vécu au Chili, au Canada, en Espagne, aux Pays-Bas, en Italie et au Royaume-Uni ... Je suis titulaire d'une maîtrise en droit et politique européens à l'Université de Portsmouth. J'ai travaillé pendant des années dans l'industrie du lobby à Bruxelles et plus tard dans l'industrie du tourisme d'aventure. Cela m'a mis en contact avec un large éventail de personnes : des politiciens, des ministres, des ingénieurs informatiques, des PDG et des créatifs dans l’âme. Cette expérience internationale m'a permis de développer de grandes compétences relationnelles et d’établir ma propre méthode d'enseignement qui est unique. Tous mes étudiants sont satisfaits de mes services et ils peuvent se porter garant si nécessaire. Un grand nombre d'entre eux a atteint le niveau C1 après seulement quelques mois de cours avec moi. Ma formation linguistique va au-delà des simples cours : je vous donne un tutorat complet (cours particuliers, possibilité de poser des questions en dehors des heures de cours, rédaction et correction de questions, etc.). N'hésitez pas à me contacter si vous avez des questions ! Et au cas où cela vous intéresse, mes hobbies sont : le vin et la gastronomie, l'équitation, la danse moderne, les langues, les voyages, la nature et les animaux. J'ai 4 chiens, 2 chats et 2 chevaux. Comme vous le voyez, nous ne manquerons probablement pas de sujets à aborder. A bientôt - Suzi :-) ------------------------------------------------------------ Bonjour Tutti, My name is Suzi and I have been an English Language Trainer for foreigners for over 10 years. I offer my classes to work professionals who needs a work method tailored to their needs! As a very perceptive person, I can quickly sense the approach that suits you. This, in combination with a playful sense of humour and very open character, makes our lessons fun and entertaining. Some students prefer to have conversational lessons, to gain more self-confidence and to enrich their vocabulary. While other students prefer grammatical structures and visual material. In short, I quickly adapt your needs and we build our lessons around that. A little about my background: I have lived in Chile, Canada, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and the UK...I hold a M.A. European Law and Policy at the University of Portsmouth. I have worked for years in the lobby industry in Brussels and later in the Adventure Tourism Industry. This has brought me into contact with a wide range of people, from politicians, ministers, IT engineers, to CEO's and creative souls. This international background allowed me to develop great people skills and my own teaching method which is unique. I have many happy students that can vouch for me if needed - and a great number of those reached level C1 after only a few months of lessons with me. My language training goes beyond lessons-only: I give you a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions! And in case it is of your interest, my hobbies are: wine & food, horse-riding, ballroom dancing, languages, travel. nature and animals. I have 4 dogs, 2 cats and 2 horses. As you see, we will probably not run out of subjects to talk about. See you soon - Suzi :-)
