Charles Michel, America's #1 Voice Over Coach!

The Winning Voice Weekly Tips

Stop being lazy!

Americans in particular have very lazy diction. Here are a few major diction points to pay attention to: Don’t say “ta” for “to.” Words ending in ing like coming or going should not be pronounced as “comin” or “goin,” unless you’re being deliberately casual for effect. Many words that end in “s” such as “words” or “ours” should be ended, instead, with the “z” sound“wordz” or “ourz.” Some words ending with a “d” should be pronounced with a final “t” instead—“helped” should be pronounced like “helpt.” In most cases, better diction and cleaner pronunciation is really a matter of LISTENING to yourself and FOCUSING on not being sloppy.

Charles is one of those rare individuals who can actually teach by example. He can demonstrate how to perform something incorrectly, then barely take a breath and do the same thing flawlessly. He is so much fun to work with!!
