Spoken English

Spoken English is different from written English. Words commonly used in spoken English differ from written English. Innovative coaching sessions based on your individual needs provide you the insight and tools you need to think, listen, learn and reply during interactions with native English speakers.

Strengthen your conversational and business English skills through structured interactions and interactive, role-play sessions with a native English speaker. Build confidence for interactions with native English speakers both in person and over the phone. Having confidence leads to fluency and reduces misunderstandings while speaking with colleagues, clients or potential employers. 

Learn to talk smoothly, continuously and with grammatical accuracy. Get tips to avoid your mother tongue influence and switching from English to Malayalam, Hindi or your native tongue during your conversations. Understand the practical function of smaller words while speaking and the proper grammar for easier conversation flow.

Submit a short voice recording of yourself to begin your Spoken English coaching. In your recording:
  • Spell your name
  • Count to 10
  • Approximately 1 minute speaking in a conversational tone to a fictitious person
  • Approximately 1 minute speaking in a professional business tone
