Our accent reduction and English pronunciation improvement 4 week class is a fun, quick approach for reducing accent and improving speech clarity. This small group seminar is limited to 6 people providing you with semi-private instruction for both onsite and online participants. This workshop is ideal for Medical, Business, Educational, IT Professionals, and Executives.
Speaking with an accent has more to do with your cultural background than English pronunciation. Accented speakers tend to speak English in the natural style of their first language, not in the cultural melodic style of American English known as intonation. Once you learn how to speak with American English intonation, you will immediately improve your English pronunciation and eliminate foreign traits such as speaking too fast, monotone, choppy or using too much muscular force on sounds. Experience improved English pronunciation within a month and enjoy talking.
We teach the missing sounds to improve your English pronunciation such as /TH, ING, R, L, W, V, SH, CH/ and Vowels. Students work with partners in smaller groups to receive immediate feedback and semi-private instruction.
Many accented speakers who speak too fast tend to speak with limited breath support. We teach how to speak with a fuller breath as a strategy to slow down, have better projection and speak with more comfort. We teach you where to “place” your voice for culturally correct English pronunciation, which is in the center of the mouth cavity. You also learn to speak from your optimal pitch range.
Throughout your workshop we video tape and record your speech so you can see your progress. We will also perform testing and provide a 3 week post-seminar training program to ensure your new skills become your new habit.
