Do you have difficulty with some English pronunciation? Could you benefit from accent training in Toronto? Accent reduction classes with an experienced coach can help you be better understood.
Everyone has an accent. Some accents can be fascinating and attractive. But a strong accent, for those speaking English as a second language (ESL), can make personal interaction difficult. Whether you're seeking a promotion, or trying to close a major corporate deal, communicating with clear English pronunciation is paramount to business success.
Through a proven accent reduction course (elocution lessons) with a Toronto accent training coach, you'll learn how rate, melody, rhythm and placement are as important for clear speech as properly formed vowels and consonants. You'll become familiar with the basic sounds of spoken English and identify those challenging for you. You'll feel the specific action of various articulators and learn to use them for greater precision and clarity of speech. Generally, you'll begin to hear and feel how to modify your English pronunciation to achieve a more North American sound.
Enhancing your English pronunciation through accent training can make you more confident and effective. Email Jay@VoiceAndSpeech.com to learn more about a private accent reduction course in Toronto, or on-site accent reduction classes for corporations.
I had very thick accent that I tried to get rid of for years. I took a few courses and worked with private coaches, but the accent still was very significant. I lost job offers because of it, especially when I had phone interviews, and my clients at work always asked me to repeat what I said. It was very frustrating.
One of my friends took Jay’s course and was very happy with it, so I decided to give it a try. It was a fascinating approach. Everything – the office, course material, and actual sessions – was organized very well. People who hadn’t seen me for a while noticed a significant difference in my speech. They said I was more confident and easy to understand.
My accent sounds more North American, now and clients rarely ask me repeat the same sentence twice. I recommend Jay’s private program to anyone who wants to improve their voice, speech and confidence.
