Level Two Course Details

CLEAR TALK MASTERY PROGRAM For ESL Speakers – 2012
Level Two Course Details

The Clear Talk Mastery Program Level Two is an expanded communication course to bring additional speaking skills to ESL (English as a Second Language) people who have scored 70% or greater on three selected intelligibility skill assessment tasks or who have completed the Level One course. Level Two students can expect to learn multiple syllable word intelligibility, English inflection, the six most important grammar rules for writing and speaking (aka, the naked grammar rules), and best strategies for presentations and satisfying conversations.

The 12-week program includes individual diagnostic assessments. Weekly personalized one-on-one coaching via Skype helps with each learner’s specific needs. Instruction in new skills should result in 70% mastery of multiple syllable word intelligibility and voice inflection, and 80 to 100% mastery of use of intentional careful clear English. Students will also learn and practice five presentation strategies.

As in all our courses, the textbook is customized based on each person’s assessment results. Again, the top goal in this English speaking/training program is long lasting, efficient improvement using principles of human brain and muscle learning. (www.ClearTalkMastery.com).
