How do I know which accent reduction program is right for me?
Change Your Accent is great if you have a solid foundation in English, but feel like your accent is holding you back. Our eBook and video lessons are a cost-effective option if you are self-motivated and comfortable with working on your own. The one-on-one program is excellent if you want a comprehensive assessment of English Pronunciation and would like to work directly with a Speech Therapist. And remember, if you are unsure about which program to choose, you can always request a free consult from one of our highly specialized Speech Therapists!
When Should You Change Your Accent?
We love accents! Accents only become an issue when they affect the ease with which a person is understood. This can cause a host of difficulties such as misunderstandings, lack of self-confidence and inability to convey important ideas. If these difficulties are occurring frequently, you will benefit from accent reduction and a Speech Therapist’s expertise.
What Kind of English Pronunciation Will I Learn?
Change Your Accent teaches a standard North American English pronunciation, which is most often used in professional settings. While there are subtle variations between standard Canadian and American accents, most people can’t tell the difference.
How Long Will it Take to Change My Accent?
The time it takes to change your accent varies from individual to individual and depends on many factors, including the time you spend practicing your new skills. If you are motivated and practice your skills regularly, you will improve. And the more you practice, the faster your speech will improve.
What Results Can I Expect if I Work One-On-One With a Speech Therapist?
In our experience, if you work one-on-one with a Speech Therapist and regularly practice your new skills, you significantly reduce your accent in 6-8 sessions.
What Will I Need to Use Your Accent Reduction Program?
You will need a device capable of viewing ebooks such as an iPad or an Android tablet, computer with a book e-reader software (such as iBooks), or a dedicated e-reader. At this time it is not possible to use the e-book on Kindle devices.
