“I have been in this country for over 10 years. Why haven’t I reduced my accent?!”

how can I reduce my accent?

We understand accent reduction and offer many classes and training options taught by Elizabeth Peterson, a licensed Speech Pathologist and author of Accent Reduction 101. Every cultural group has their own melody style for talking. When someone learns a second language like English, it is normal to speak it in the melody style of your first language. Too much muscular force and missing sounds also creates accent. American English has a specific melody pattern (intonation) for talking. Once you start to speak your English with American intonation, you will immediately experience clarity with your overall pronunciation. Elizabeth Peterson has been a speech pathologist for over 23 years and has worked with accented professionals in her Denver practice for over 12 years. We offer many solutions on how you can reduce your accent quickly, and speak with greater clarity and confidence. Training is available in our Denver Office or Online.
