Ruth teaches you how to exit your comfort zone, make mistakes, and be happier!”

“I used to be shy and unwilling to talk to others but now I am more active and confident in the conversation – I like to laugh.”
– YiFeng, visiting scholar from China


Learn tips to speak English with musicality and clarity, with your senses, emotions and physicality.
In this 75-minute workshop we play with core English language elements of volume, speed & tone: eyebrow flashing, voicing, head nods and hand gesturing.
Expect laughter, movement and more ease with language!

For:
• Learners & Teachers of English as a second language
• Anyone wanting to be more effective and expressive when speaking English
• Others may find applications for learning a new language, e.g., Dutch, Spanish, French.
