Improve Your Speech - US English by Mark Caven
A guide giving useful tips to help achieve a more professional level of speech. Our speech and voice can say as much about us as the clothes we wear, the car we drive, or even the newspapers and magazines we read.
Used properly, speech can help us to achieve a greater level of success. Improve Your Speech is not about individual accents - it is about clarity in our communication skills.
It is aimed primarily at those who have American English as their first language, but it is also useful for those with English as their second language. Topics covered include:
Valley of the Lost Consonants
Incomprehensible Vowel syndrome
Reconnectin' with your word endings
Learning, like, not to like, say "like"
Losing those upward inflections!
