What are the elements of good public speaking? There are 4 essential elements: content, structure, vocal delivery and body language.
Which elements will you cover in my course? During your free consultation, Karen will listen to your goals and challenges. Then, she will help you prioritize which elements will improve your public speaking the most. Based on your time, interest and budget, you can select a package which suits you best.
What is included in the cost of the lessons? Your private lessons will include all course material, personalized practice, and feedback.
How long are the lessons? 60 minutes.
Where do we meet? Currently, all lessons are offered online using Zoom.
How often do we meet? Once a week is usually best. This gives you time to absorb the material and complete your practice.
Do I have to practice? If you want to improve, the answer is "yes"! Practice is assigned at the end of every session. We take into account that you probably have a busy schedule and have limited free time.
Do you work with English speakers at all levels? No. Our speech coaching is designed for:
non-native English speakers at a high-intermediate to advanced level
native English speakers
I am a non-native English speaker. How do I know if my English is at the right level for speech coaching? If you use and understand English comfortably, if not perfectly, at work or school, then you are probably a high intermediate to advanced speaker.
Can I take both pronunciation and speech coaching lessons? Yes. However, it is much more effective to cover each topic separately. If people have a hard time understanding your English, then improving your pronunciation is the top priority. Feel free to discuss this further with Karen in your free consultation.
What payments do you accept? All major credit cards are accepted, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, JCB, and UnionPay. Alipay is also accepted. We use Stripe to offer you convenient, secure online payment processing.
Will my company pay for my lessons? Possibly. Ask your human resources department if you are eligible for reimbursement for education and training expenses. Use this letter to request payment for your Well Said Lessons. After I finish a package, may I sign up for another one? Of course! You can take another full-package if you would like to cover another public speaking element. Or, you can sign up for practice sessions to reinforce the material you covered in your initial package.
