Accent reduction training helps you speak American English more clearly and with greater confidence. Be understood & achieve your goals!
1. You’ll be able to improve your communication skills.
When you have an accent, it can be difficult for people to understand you. This can lead to communication problems and can make it difficult to get your message across. However, with accent reduction training, you’ll be able to improve your communication skills and make yourself understood.
2. You’ll be able to advance in your career.
If you have an accent, it can hold you back professionally. In many cases, people with accents are passed over for promotions or are not given the same opportunities as others. However, if you receive accent reduction training, you’ll be prepared to advance in your career and reach your full potential.
3. You’ll be able to improve your social life.
If you have an accent, it can be difficult to socialize. This is because people may not be able to understand you or they may feel uncomfortable. However, with accent reduction training, you’ll be able to improve your social life and make new friends.
OneWorld Speech & Language Consulting, based in Minnesota, provides communication training for business and medical professionals who speak accented English and desire to increase their speaking confidence and clarity of American English through accent reduction. We customize training programs to address the specific communication needs of clients in their working and social environments.
Building on English as a Second Language (ESL) skills, the goal of accent reduction is to enhance speaker confidence by removing the focus from how a person speaks to what a person is saying so that they can become more effective and efficient communicators.
