Accent Modification Training

Speak English clearly and confidently

Speaking Success offers individual coaching sessions for non-native speakers of English who want to modify their accented speech. Clients are taught important features of North American English pronunciation and then practice those specific sounds and patterns that were identified as interfering with communication.

  • Learn about consonants and vowel production, especially those that are different from the native language sounds.

  • Learn word stress patterns. We store vocabulary in our brains by their stress pattern. If the wrong syllable is stressed, it takes longer to process the information.

  • Learn rhythm and linking. English has stress-timed rhythm; most other languages have syllable-timed rhythm.

  • Learn discourse intonation patterns.

  • Learn how to “slow down” your speech.

Clients receive targeted feedback, specific to their needs and goals.
