Why do I need it? 
Phonetic voice training improves the overall sound of your language and will help you to perfect the pronunciation of the French that you use. 
All techniques are from acting and singing techniques. They are used for vocal training purpose. These techniques help you to be aware of the sound that we produce and how we produce them. Through these techniques the sound becomes something real that one can feel.  
Using these techniques and mixing them with the phonetic scheme / knowledge the student will be able to understand and then with practice master the very difficult French sounds such as u, en, in. 
The use of phonetic documents supports the practice which becomes clear and concrete. After this workshop the student will see foreign language from another point of view and French people will rediscover their own language.
