Oliviero Papi has developed a training to improve confidence and facility for spoken English. His approach circumnavigates any timidity by creating a supportive and fun environment. He invites participants to dare to try by proposing concrete tools with which to improve and move beyond their self-consciousness in spoken english.

This technical approach derives from his vocal training for actors, with an emphasis upon the physical form of language in the mouth. Oliviero teaches the particularities of the sounds and combinations thereof in English, via an awareness of the placement of the tongue, teeth, lips and palate; a gymnasium for the mouth which practices the physical pathways of speech. This technical work is then applied to different styles of English from daily language and basic dialogue to poetry and even Shakespeare.

The sessions are available for groups or individuals and are designed for anyone who wishes to gain confidence in their capacity for spoken English.
