Learn How To Modify Your Accent
Improve Your Language Skills, Speak More Clearly and Improve Communication
Sound, intonation, and rhythm patterns are different in each language or dialect. If a speaker wants to learn Standard Global English, they must first learn to hear (and see and feel) the differences between their current speech patterns and Standard English. It is then that goals can be established and new speaking patterns and habits taught and learned, through targeted exercises, practice, and carryover techniques. Accent modification may also include achieving increased awareness of English grammar, and differences in various cultural communication styles. Accent work may be combined with improving overall voice use and enhancing communication skills for professional speech.
