Spanish to English-Bravo Senor !
Spain's hottest photographer speaks
We've just had fun helping the wonderful Manuel Vincente,photojournalist extraordinaire,to sound great on an upcoming commercial. Manuel,a native of Spain,had to get his accent in focus so he could be clear and convincing. So happily,the production company came to us for some help. We dialect consult for lots of productions and are always at the ready to help reduce an accent and increase a presenter's confidence.Ole!

You knew it all along right.! Now the latest scientific research published in the Journal of Current Biology, proves that your pets respond to your tone of voice.Parts of their brain lights up in response to certain sounds emitted when you are experiencing certain emotions.This is what makes communication between humans and dogs (in particular) so efficient. Time to speak to the animals!

What speaking up can do for the World
Take a lesson in bravery from Malala
Just over a year ago this brave young girl was shot in the head for speaking up about the rights of girls to have an education. She faced the fear that most of us have deep down when speaking in public. The fear that someone won't like us. Not only did she come through the ordeal, but she has continued to speak up for something she believes in. Despite the fact that people are still out to silence her. Make's your own fear look pretty small doesn't it. Join us in supporting The Malala Fund at www.malalafund.org
