Accent Reduction

Accent reduction (also called modification or pronunciation) programs begin where conventional English as a Second Language (ESL) courses end. Individual or small group instruction available.

Based on years of linguistic research and teaching, our course is designed specifically to aid foreign-born individuals in improving their spoken English and to bridge the gap between formal English instruction and accurate American English proficiency.

The average participant experiences at least a 50% improvement in pronunciation and usage of American English.

What’s Included:

  • An initial interview and professional speech evaluation
  • A completely individualized learning program based on a phonetic analysis of student’s speech
  • A comprehensive set of practice exercises in a CD-ROM
  • A worksheet of customized practice words which are especially important to the student
  • Personal live instruction
  • A self-study program for continuing improvement at the end of the course
