Online Accent Modification Support

Are people constantly asking, “Pardon? Can you repeat that?” If communication is breaking down, our Accent Modification Team can help!

We are currently offering online services for accent modification during this time of regulated physical distancing. 

Many people are finding this to be a perfect time to get online and receive the training they have always wanted in this area without having to travel to a clinic to receive the support. We are finding ourselves in a time when clarity of communication is more essential than ever as we transition to work and education over online platforms. 

What is Accent Modification Training?

Accent modification involves lessening the intensity of a regional or first-language accent when speaking English. The treatment involves four steps:

  • recognition
  • reproduction
  • repetition
  • generalization

The goal of accent modification is not to erase the accent completely, but rather to make sure it doesn’t prevent a person from clearly communicating with confidence in a variety of settings.  
Accent modification programs can be beneficial for those people who find their accent is holding them back in the workplace or who are struggling to learn the slang or “lingo” of social conversation in English.

How Can We Help?

Our sessions can improve pronunciation, grammar, sentence structure and semantics. 
Benefits from receiving accent modification sessions include:  

  • Increased ability to be understood by others
  • Increased confidence when speaking in English in a variety of settings such as in the workplace or with friends
  • Increased ability to understand English
  • Increased ability to be understood on the phone and during presentations
  • Ability to enjoy communication in a variety of settings without worrying about your pronunciation
