Accent reduction training is the process of acquiring proficiency in all aspects of Canadian/American pronunciation, or the standard North American accent. Below are two areas in which my one-on-one training will benefit you.
Grammar is the foundation of any language. It’s how we build our sentences to make them clear and precise, using sound and structure to create meaning.
I work with individuals who would like to perfect their English grammar skills, in order to advance their careers or areas of study.
Because grammar is an area of struggle for many native and non-native speakers alike, I provide a relaxed and encouraging environment to improve your mastery of it.
and Public Speaking
Regardless of whether or not you speak with an accent, many of us have subtle ways of speaking that distract from our message. Learning to articulate with clarity and confidence enables you to connect with your audience and hold their interest.
Whether in a meeting with just a few people, or in a room full of hundreds, making positive improvements to the way you present can move you from being “just okay” to being an influence in your field.
Areas I focus on include:
- vowel and consonant sounds
- word, syllable and sentence stress
- smooth speech (connected speech, linking)
My method of accent reduction will help you:
- Communicate clearly and be understood
- Increase self-confidence so you can speak with authority
- Improve employment and advancement potential
- Explore your personal communication style
All sessions are private and can be done in-person, by Skype or phone. Contact me for further information.
