Attendees will be encouraged to take part in a relaxation session and focus on what the body is doing when we speak, followed by practice with others. This fun session is geared to those who anyone who speaks English, whether native speaker or not, who would like to develop confidence in using their voice in the world.

Tutor Bio - Joanna Duchesne

Joanna Duchesne is a mother of two. She studied French and Spanish to degree level, and after a varied career in audio-visual production, she returned to her love of language. She now works part-time at Morley and also runs a film co-operative.

As a child, Joanna developed a speech impediment because she was slightly deaf. Following an operation and speech therapy her speaking and hearing became normal. This experience, she thinks, sparked her fascination with the sound of language and the way people speak.

She now teaches pronunciation and ESOL at Morley. She also runs film-making workshops and multimedia training.
