Accent reduction classes are designed for students who are proficient in most aspects of English (reading, vocabulary, and listening comprehension) but who sometimes avoid speaking with Americans because they fear being misunderstood due to their foreign accents or pronunciation errors. In order to determine your particular areas of difficulty in speaking or reading aloud, we will begin with a diagnostic evaluation of your spoken English and then proceed to learn the consonants, vowels, diphthongs, and the tricky clusters and combinations that typically do not occur in other languages-like /sh/, /ch/, /th/, /zh/, /ft/, /str/, /ng/, to name just a few! We will also work on stress, phrasing, speed, and intonation, all of which make the "music" and rhythm of American English.
Through oral exercises, reading aloud, mini-presentations and lively, interactive discussions, we will practice realistic language situations with the emphasis on speaking clearly and building self-confidence so that you can fully participate in conversations whenever and wherever you choose.
Come join us, and lose your accent!
The first step is always the assessment and then we figure out with the client can commit to and what we think is the best for him. Our courses are normally 3-6 months in duration and then clients usually will work with us in other areas or continue but it is up to them but also offer customized options for companies and individuals.
