Accent Modification 

Does the accent of your native language… 

…make you feel like people don’t understand you?

…require you to frequently repeat yourself?

…cause you to avoid speaking English on the telephone or in other communication situations?

 

Accent modification training can benefit:

  • Anyone who has a good command of English as a non-native language, but may still have trouble being understood by others due to the influence of their native language(s)
  • Anyone who panics when there is a speaking opportunity (social, professional, presentations) and may avoid or refuse to speak
  • Anyone who wants to turn the focus from how they are speaking to what they are saying
  • Anyone who wants to increase their efficiency in the workplace or during daily communication
