What is the course about?

The course aims to help you rebuild your self-confidence by improving communication skills and putting them to use in conversation. The course will look at how much of spoken English is visible and how to cope more easily when it is not visible. We will look at: the technique of voicing (speaking with sound) and devoicing (speaking without sound); what ‘substitutions’ are and why they happen; some of the shapes of spoken English; finger spelling (its advantages and when to use it); how to cope in difficult conversational situations; how to help yourself; what environments are good/bad for lip reading; local and national help-points.
