The Serlin Method™ for Elocution helps you to adjust the way you speak so you can sound more formal or polished. It will help you to enunciate with greater clarity and to manage the impression you make through your voice and speech.

  • Softening of regional accents
  • Mumbling & lack of clarity

Its so important that when you speak you feel confident about the sounds that come out of your mouth. For some people, they feel that they way they speak, doesn’t match with how they feel inside, or the impression they want to make. That might be through an accent, a habit, mumbling or simply dropping certain sounds. The Serlin Method™ for Elocution gets to the bottom and gives real solutions.

The course can be taken bundles of five, ten or fifteen sessions and many people extend long past that. Initially we usually recommend the classic package as ten session are a really good amount of time to make shifts to your communication. Any less can feel a bit rushed, after all, this is how you’ve been communicating most if not all of your adult life! To read more about packages see below.

The elocution course provides the simplest and quickest route to clear enunciation, combining effective communication and accent softening methods. It focuses on the essentials, so that speakers can fit into any social situation. It addresses pronunciation and articulation—addressing all the sounds which are leading to the accent and effective communication tools that will support you to be more confident and clear.

In each session, you will work on some specific sounds that are holding onto your accent, and you will get used to putting the new sounds into conversation. You will also be working on some specific effective communication tools, to help you improve your overall ability and focus on any areas that are top priority.

This could include:

  • Vocal impact
  • Presentation skills
  • Stop using fillers like ‘umm’
  • Enunciate with more clarity
