Lucid (adj) /luːsɪd/ clearly expressed and easy to understand

Lucid Language has been set up to help individuals and organisations who commonly need to communicate with people who are not fluent in English.

I deliver training workshops which I tailor to your specific situation and its contexts. A typical session would include:

­­ Techniques for adapting your choice of words and pace of speaking so that people are more likely to understand you.
­­ Awareness of when to feel secure that communication has been effective.
­­ Information on how common community languages differ to English and how this can be taken into account.

This is not about guiding people to use ‘correct’ English, rather it is about helping staff to make themselves understood clearly, thereby bringing coherence and efficiency to their work.
