Accent Modification

Accent Modification training is for those who wish to modify their regional or foreign accent. Though accents are a natural part of spoken language, they can affect people’s communication in the following ways:

  • People may have difficulty understanding you
  • Feeling frustrated and anxious when people have you repeat yourself
  • People not understanding the content of your message because they focus more on your accent

Any of these difficulties can cause strain on your daily activities, job performance and educational progress.
