    Three Content Themes!

    ■ accent assessment

    Level 2-A broadens your assessment skills by viewing testing within the confines of a specific language group.  Level 2-D covers accent placement and screening options to complement full accent testing choices.

    ■ instructional content and basic formats

    Two webinars deal with unique and challenging aspects of training for this population. Level 2-B is an advanced look at intonation issues – the critical component of polished communication in any language. Again, this is definitely is a ‘beyond the basics’ exploration that more experienced trainers will welcome. We look at the trainer’s ‘bag of tricks’ for improving intonation in various format applications as well as unique, linguistically-based prosody variations. Level 2-C looks at the trainer’s competencies for working with adults: how learning is different with adults — and how to make the most of adult learning behaviors.

    ■ marketing

    Level 2-E webinar addresses a specific approach to the selling process – as a partner in your prospect’s problem-solving. This is an extremely interactive discussion with frequent opportunities to reflect on your current marketing applications.
