Webinar Coaching for Bilingual Journalists

Part One

Mastering the Sound and Rhythm of American English

Instructor: Jenni Steck

Length: 2 Hour

Who It's For: Bilingual news talent who want to articulate more clearly in English

Jenni Steck, clinician and professional voice coach, walks participants through the sound and speech patterns most critical to communicating clearly in English – and shows them how to work at perfecting them on their own. 

Very often, bilingual speakers are challenged not just by getting pronunciations right, but by understanding how the rhythm of American English differs from their native tongue. This webinar provides 1) a comprehensive explanation of both challenges and 2) practical tools that participants can use to make quick progress improving their delivery.

The live session will include time for Q&A.

Part two

Putting English to Work on the Professional Newscast

Instructor: Tony Martinez

Length: 2 Hour

Who It's For: Bilingual talent who speak English clearly and are ready to apply that skill in a professional news environment.

In our own work coaching bilingual news talent, we know that speaking English confidently and powerfully on-air requires much more than a mastery of the sounds and rhythms of the language itself.

In this webinar, Barry Nash & Company’s bilingual coach, Tony Martinez, shows talent how to apply their skills specifically to the demands of working in newscasts — reading prompter, tracking, and delivering creative and powerful standups and live shots. The session features practical examples of effective delivery, and participants receive materials that we’ve designed specifically to help them plan for effective on-camera delivery. Much of what’s taught will be powerfully applicable to work in any language, in addition to its application to work in American English.

Participants will learn:

Part One

May 15th at 1pm EST

Part Two

Participants in either webinar will automatically receive a 10% discount on any one-on-one followup coaching. If you cannot attend live you will have access to recordings of the sessions.
