Accent Reduction

How Much Will I Improve?

Students commonly want to know how much benefit they’ll see from accent modification training. Here’s what you need to know – change comes from within. These classes will pinpoint exactly what you need and the sounds you struggle with. Your instructor will prioritize lessons so you get the most benefit in the shortest time. There is no doubt that working 1:1 with a speech therapist is much more effective than working alone or with random online videos. You will improve. How much you improve will depend on several factors:

  • your commitment to practice and incorporate lessons into your daily speech
  • the support you get from family and friends who help you achieve your goals

Your instructor will craft activities to target sounds in a very clear way. We use a multi-sensory approach to help you see/hear/feel how sounds should be made. Students experience improvement immediately. The more effort you put in, the more you’ll get out of it. We’ll also take samples of your accent before and after you complete your program. You’ll hear for yourself how much better you sound.

Is Accent Modification Right for Me?

Do you want to improve your English pronunciation? If so, accent modification (or accent reduction) may be right for you. In general, accent training is recommended for:

  • Foreign speakers with solid English language skills (e.g., vocabulary, word order, and listening skills) who simply want to improve their English pronunciation;
  • English speakers who want to minimize their regional accent;
  • Actors who need to adjust their pronunciation for a role;
  • Business people, medical professionals, or researchers who want to improve the clarity of their communication.
