Free Elocution Kids’ Lesson Resource

Smile for 'S' Sounds, Kids!

We are currently working with young learners who experiencing difficulties in the English pronunciation of 'S' and 'Z' sounds.

As our Elocution training programmes are specific to each learner's weakness, we have developed special learning resources for children experiencing lisp sounds in their speech.

If your child is experiencing weaknesses in pronouncing 'S' or 'Z', then the following free Kids' Elocution Lesson Resource may be of assistance.
