WHY DO I NEED ACCENT REDUCTION TRAINING?
SPEAK WITH CLARITY
Every language has its own rhythms, sounds and intonations. When you learn English as a Second Language, you are learning vocabulary and the language rules of grammar. One can speak ESL for years and still be heavily influenced by their native language without participating in some form of specialized training and practice. Those who succeed the greatest with accent reduction training are those individuals who already have a basic command of English.
BARRIERS TO SUCCESS
Have you ever heard the saying "it's not what you say, it's how you say it?" Improper rate of speech, intonation and loudness greatly influences, and may even change, the point you are trying to make.
