Let's Get In Touch

What is Accent Reduction?

Accent reduction, also known as accent neutralization, helps you speak more clearly so that others can understand. Through my unique process, I help you become proficient in speaking with a Standard North American accent, including learning specific sounds and intonation.

Who is Accent Reduction For?

Accent reduction courses are ideal for business-savvy individuals, medical professionals or someone who is looking for more opportunities within their chosen careers. English language schools focus on listening, reading, writing, and speaking. This will get you far but what you need is to be understood and this is where I come in.

What is the Process of American Accent Training Like?

The entire accent modification process begins with a quick 15-minute CONSULTATION. This helps me determine most of what we need to modify and whether or not we’re a good fit. From there, we schedule classes and homework accordingly, helping you break through communication barriers.

1. Book a 15 minute consultation.
In our 15-minute consultation, I’ll determine most of the sounds that we will modify. For instance, vowels, such as the short “a” in “cat” or the long “e” in “need,” and consonants, such as P, K, T, and L. This is our first step to break through your communication barriers.
2. Schedule your classes.

We’ll work together to determine a class schedule that works best for both of us. During each class, we work on one or two sounds. I’ll help you understand how to form the sound and its mechanics. We’ll continue playing with the sound until you feel comfortable. From there, we incorporate real words so that you can immediately put these new sounds to work.

3. Complete all assigned homework.
After our sessions together, I’ll assign homework for each new sound and encourage you to use it as much as possible with others, such as when in restaurants, at work, or shopping. Before your next class, I’ll review the recordings of your homework to determine our focus during our next session.
4. After the basics, we incorporate your specific work verbiage.
Usually, we’ll continue with one sound until you feel comfortable with it. We then add your work verbiage, ensuring you are pronouncing your most commonly-used words clearly.
5. You feel confident when you communicate and a world of opportunities opens.
Through working together, I will increase your confidence and encourage you to enjoy learning all of these new sounds. When working with me, I will make things fun and comfortable, without any pressure or judgment.
