  • I've done some lipreading before, do I need to be an absolute beginner?

    This course is perfect for absolute beginners, but it’s also great for those who have lipreading experience, who are looking to either refresh or add to their lipreading skills, or add to them.

    Our opinion is that you can’t practice lipreading too much. The more work you put into lipreading the easier it will become. This course is designed to help you feel confident and comfortable with your lipreading skills, and whether or not you have experience, you will learn new tips and tricks, as well as gaining a lot of practice.
