For First Time Students
What are your personal speaking goals? During this ‘get to know each other’ conversation, you get to know my teaching style and personality, asking all the questions you may have about this sound awareness thing.
I’ll get a chance to listen to your current speaking level and show you some exercises you can use right away to help with your learning goals.
Practice imitating a podcast to get deep into focusing your attention on the parts of speech that are causing challenges in your attempts at communicating with others. I’ll help you adjust your attention to areas your ear isn’t picking up.
Great for people learning English, and fluent English speakers who struggle understanding how others use tone, analogies, or other parts of casual speech.
Choose from a list of podcast episodes on a wide variety of topics!
Work with me 1-on-1
You can be confident having conversations with others- no matter if you struggle with pronunciation, need help understanding tone, or want to practice turn taking. Sign up for a 4-session Course and get feedback on your exercises between sessions.
Homework exercises could include tongue twisters, nursery rhymes, imitating podcasts, or a new technique created specifically for your learning style.
Building on What You Already Know
Take a moment to think about how much you already know about language.
You know what nouns and verbs are. You can name parts of grammar and have an extensive vocabulary. You might not know a lot of words in the language you’re trying to learn, but I think you would agree you are fluent in at least one language.
Are you perfect in your primary language?
Language learning never ends, but you get to a point where it’s easy and fun to speak! That’s what Crafting Sound Meaning is all about.
We work together to build on how much you already speak and develop a personalized exercise routine — challenging enough to keep you invested without totally overwhelming you.
