What to Expect from Your 4 Week English Pronunciation Class

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text]

We provide our accent reduction training classes in Denver, online or we come to your office.Cultural Features and How to Reduce Accent Quickly

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.

 

Learn Details for Improving English Pronunciation

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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”52px”][vc_single_image image=”15994″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” qode_css_animation=””][vc_empty_space height=”52px”][vc_column_text]

Other Cultural Benefits for Improving English Pronunciation

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.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”52px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”16004″ img_size=”full” alignment=”right” qode_css_animation=””][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
