RTE Presenters To Get English Lessons
Updated : Feb 19, 2009
RTE are offering their persenters an online crash course in speaking properly to help fight mispronunciations on air.
Famous faces such as Anne Doyle and Brian Dobson are delighted with the news as it will stop dodgy pronunciations of words such a nuclear, and Irish place names like Dun Laoghaire and Portlaoise.
Anne Doyle said: "I think it's a wonderful idea. It will make our lives a great deal easier. It will be a great help to us. We still won't get everything right but we will have more accuracy."
