How You Can Reduce Your Accent

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

When someone learns a new language like English, they speak it in the intonation style of their 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.

Experience Greater Clarity with your English in Three Online Sessions!

  • 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.

Your online accent reduction class will be taught by Elizabeth Peterson, speech-language pathologist with over 23 years of experience working with languages and speech patterns from all over the World. The accent reduction online class is designed for busy professional people like yourself. Each class has a targeted lesson. The course comes with the book, Accent Reduction 101 and has auditory support to practice your new skills. Real-world and functional activities are placed in your daily schedule so you can practice speaking with a reduced accent across your business day.
