KTS Webinar #51 Working with L2 English Speakers: Strategies for Accent and Acting Coaching

Whether working in a university theater program or coaching on set in English, as teachers and coaches, we’re always looking for ways to effectively support students and clients for whom English is a second (or third, fourth, etc.) language: to help them embody the role, book the job, or give them the tools and confidence to serve them in their creative careers long-term.

Join us on Zoom for a conversation with KTS Certified Teachers and Hollywood accent coaches, Ron Carlos and Eliza Simpson, where we’ll explore accent work for actors who are L2 English speakers.

On Sunday, May 19th at 11am PST/2pm EST/7pm GMT
