Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WAN CHAI, Hong Kong - May 10, 2016 - According to a recent survey commissioned by the Prime English Learning Centre and conducted by market research company MPEG, English pronunciation standards are declining across the local population in Hong Kong. For example, the survey revealed that one in two Hongkongers who participated mispronounced 10 out of 10 commonly-used English words.
International executive coaching firm HKEnglish.com is hoping to combat this slide in English language skills by launching their new English Pronunciation and Accent Reduction Course. The course is designed to help business executives and professionals working in or with multi-national organisations to speak English clearly with colleagues and managers, both professionally and socially.
The aim of this one-to-one, customized course is to improve a business professional’s English pronunciation and intonation while reducing native language accent. The course also helps develop English grammar skills while extending English vocabulary for use in real life social and work situations. The format focuses on personal pronunciation coaching with friendly, internationally-qualified, native speakers rather than theoretical learning. One-to-one tutoring offers flexibility in content and pricing, allowing students the flexibility to work on any aspect of their English communication skills.
The course is suitable for local Hong Kong and mainland Chinese citizens as well as non-native English speaking foreign nationals relocating to Hong Kong.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to help our clients with our new high quality, one-to-one pronunciation and accent reduction course,” said Ian Nock, Director of Studies for HKEnglish. “Our unique program is designed to enable anyone speak English fluently and clearly in any situation.”
