How You Can Reduce Your Accent?

Reducing or minimizing your accent is a realistic goal. Lets first examine why accents exist. Every cultural group (i.e. speakers from India, Russia or Spanish countries for example) has their own way for talking. The talking pattern is known as intonation.

 

Once someone learns a new language like English, that second language is spoken in the intonation style of the first language. The first skill that will be learned in your online accent reduction class is how to speak your English in the cultural style of American speakers. Speaking English in the American intonation style is the first and most important step in a successful accent reduction training class.

Why American Intonation Immediately Makes Your English Clearer

 

  • You are speaking your English in the American style and not in the style of your first language.
  • Since you are speaking with American Intonation you are minimizing your accented behaviors such as:
    • Talking too fast
    • Talking with shorter and choppy sound segments
    • Talking in a monotone style
  • Once American intonation becomes habit, you are now in position to learn the missing sounds from your English such as: /th, v, w, vowel sounds/ to name a few.
