Many international professionals have a strong desire to speak English with an American style accent in order to communicate more effectively in their workplace.
They understand that speaking American English clearly, will help them move up in their careers.
This article from the New York Times explains how some non-native English speaking professionals are using speech coaches (like ME) to improve their spoken English.
Many of the coaches are trained in drama techniques. Some use jaw relaxation and mouth muscle exercises to help students learn to speak with an American accent.
These are helpful techniques!
When I work on accent reduction with my clients; people working in IT, health care, management & sales, I take this approach:
We identify & organize the words & phrases that are the most difficult for YOU to say ☝
We put these words and phrases into meaningful sentences & dialogs ☞
We practice these together until you sound smooth, clear & confident ♬
If you are an international professional who is serious about improving your American English pronunciation I encourage you learn about the benefits of Accent Reduction Coaching.
The most common comment that I hear from my current accent reduction coaching clients is this, “I wish I would have taken this course a long time ago.”
I tell my clients that it’s never to late to make some noticeable changes to the way you speak and communicate.
You’ve already made an investment in your career! ☆ Now it may be time for you to bring your spoken English skills up to the next level.
