About the Workshop Speech Therapy: Dutch sounds, this is how you pronounce them
Sylvia moved from Spain to the Netherlands 7 years ago. She has been speaking Dutch for years, yet she regularly hears that she is difficult to understand. She does not know what she is doing wrong. Through the speech therapy classes, she discovered which sounds she had been pronouncing wrong from the start. “Why did no one ever tell me this?” she asks herself. She is very glad that her pronunciation is much more Dutch now that she has completed the speech therapy classes. She speaks with more self-confidence and notices that people now understand her well.
Besides a short theoretical introduction, active practice is the focus of this course, and every participant receives feedback on his particular pronunciation difficulties. The aim of the workshop is to make participants aware of correct and incorrect ways of pronunciation. What determines good pronunciation? The participants receive practical tips to start working on improving their Dutch pronunciation themselves.
