Accent reduction classes for international and native speakers of English focus on the reduction/elimination of an interfering accent. Instruction is available both in person and online.
General American accent, the pronunciation associated with the well-educated American, is taught. The goal is readily intelligible speech.
The speech of each client is analyzed. The client’s particular program of instruction is based on that analysis.
In the program used, audio CDs accompany extensive written material for practice between sessions. American expressions are worked on simultaneously, as is the elimination of remaining grammatical errors.
