Accent Training

Accent reduction training is designed non-native speakers of English as well as native speakers looking to achieve production of neutral, standard pronunciation patterns. Most of our students don’t want to eliminate their accent, but do want to eliminate barriers to successful, easy communication. We can help by teaching you the sounds, stress, and intonation patterns of American English.

 

We are passionate about language learning and believe that the process never truly ends. Learning American English does not take away from your native language, but broadens your worldview and enhances your ability to connect quickly and easily with others.

 

Some of our students strive to perfect their pronunciation of American English. We encourage lofty goals and welcome the challenge! Our proprietary method and materials will teach you the intricacies needed to sound like a native.
