Who is this client?
Benny, a Ph.D. student, immigrated from China a few years ago. He gets nervous when public speaking and often complained that people could not understand what he was saying. As a Ph.D. student, Benny’s key responsibilities were:
- Convey info in an engaging way.
- Speaking clear about his research and the goal.
- To present his research in a way that others can understand.
- to deal with complaints and problems promptly.
What were his goals?
For a PhD student like Benny the primary goal was to improve his presentation skills and speak more clearly. Benny wanted to learn and produce North American consonants and vowels and use the correct intonation pattern within words and phrases.
How did Speak Fluent's Speech- Language Pathologist help?
After 12 sessions, Benny used one essential North American English sound present in his research topic. He was more aware of filler words and stopped using them. When presenting his research, he could emphasize the importance of different issues. Benny will continue to work on his constants and vowels to become clearer in his speech.
