Client Testimonials

"…Yesterday I gave a ten minute presentation and asked a friend to record it so that I could hear myself talking, and the difference between yesterday and a talk I gave 6 months ago (and also have on video) is amazing! I highly recommend working with AccentAccurate if you feel like communication is an important part of your work or even if you feel the need for clearer communication in your day to day life.

Why is American Accent Training Important?

 
  • American Accent training improves your working knowledge of American English, which is considered the international language of business, and is essential for more and more jobs around the world.

  •  Accent training complements the knowledge acquired in ESL classes, in which the English language is taught, but which often fail to adequately address nuances related to accent and pronunciation.

  • Accent coaching can remove roadblocks  to effective communication due to a strong or heavy accent

  • Training lead to better job and business opportunities.

  • Accent Reduction can result in a more successful school experience.

  • Accent Modification Training

    Accent modification training is about learning the American English pronunciation rules, and finding out which of our speaking patterns and sounds we need to modify in order for our speech to sound less accented. The coaching program is developed based on the evaluation and includes education and practice exercises designed to reinforce the new pronunciation patterns and rules.

  • Cultural Communication Consulting

    Communicating within a culture that’s not our native culture can be challenging. What’s considered appropriate and expected in one culture can be perceived as inappropriate and even offensive in another. Cultural communication consulting involves discussion around one’s native cultural norms within the context of the expectations in the American business culture.

Beginning your Journey to Clearer Communications is as easy as 1-2-3.
