WHAT IS ACCENT MODIFICATION?
Everyone has an accent. It is part of our identity. If your accent makes it difficult for people to understand you, accent modification can help.
Accent modification is private coaching with a clinically licensed speech professional that helps you improve your clarity and naturalness when speaking American English. It won't erase your accent, and that is not the goal. Instead, it will equip you to communicate smoothly, clearly, and confidently to make yourself understood.
Your coach will help you pinpoint exactly what to work on. You'll get a personalized plan with specific strategies and detailed feedback from an expert in sound production and intonation to help you make the adjustments you want.
WHY CHOOSE ACCENT MODIFICATION?
There are a number of reasons that people choose to work with an accent coach.
Some people notice that their communication partners have to work hard to understand them. Others have faced linguistic discrimination, or unfair treatment due to the sound of their speech. Accent modification equips speakers of English as a second language to adjust the sound of their speech, empowering them to communicate confidently in any setting.
People who hear your voice should focus on what you say, not how you talk.
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
If you have learned to speak English fluently as a second (or third, etc.) language, or if you are a native English speaker with a strong regional accent, you may want to consider whether accent modification could help you improve the clarity and naturalness of your speech.
For me it was a great experience. Working with Brooke was wonderful, she was very professional. The technology worked well. After just four weeks, my friends commented that they noticed a change in my pronunciation. It surely surpassed my expectations.
