Why don’t people understand me when I speak English?

Do you wonder why people don’t always understand you when you speak English?

If you learned to speak English outside of North America, there’s a good chance that people in the US & Canada won’t understand everything you say.

But I read & write English at an advanced level

Why don’t people understand me when I speak English?

All of the people who I work with in my accent reduction coaching program are:

  • well educated
  • professional
  • career oriented
  • successful

They read & write English at an advanced level.

Still, many of them speak English with an “accent” that American listeners find difficult to understand.

Personal accent reduction coaching

Many highly accomplished professionals choose to work with me on reducing their accents.

They understand that clear communication is critical for success in North America.

They want to understand WHY American listeners don’t always understand them.

They’re ready to learn techniques they apply use to change this.

How about you?

Maybe you never realized that your spoken English was a problem.

Then something happened that brought this to your attention.

  • Maybe your boss said that your communication skills weren’t satisfactory
  • Maybe you noticed that people look away or seem confused when you speak to them.
  • Perhaps you said a word that someone didn’t understand…so you had to spell it out.
  • Perhaps people avoid you because processing your speech takes too much effort.
