Stop apologizing for the way you sound
Improve your English pronunciation by as much as 50% in as little as 3 months
If someone listened in on your conversations at work, at the grocery store, or with your neighbors, that’s what they would hear.
They’d hear conversations that are interrupted by well-meaning co-workers who know you’ve got something important to say so they interrupt your thoughts to make you repeat yourself.
They’d hear conversations with locals that are characterized by blank faces as you ask where you can find the coconut milk at the grocery store.
They’d hear job interviews that don’t show the interviewer exactly how well you can do the job.
Worst of all, you’ve tried to improve your accent.
You’ve watched countless YouTube videos, trying to figure out how to get the magical way to speak like an American speaker. You’ve listened to Americans, trying to mimic the correct stress patterns. But it’s not working.

Accent reduction, sometimes referred to as accent modification, accent neutralization, or elocution, is a strategic way of reducing your native accent. It’s not enough to speak perfectly grammatical English if people have difficulty understanding you--you have to speak melodically and rhythmically in order to communicate well.
Accent reduction is necessary if you feel your own accent is holding you back and stopping people from effectively communicating with you. Most of my clients already know the English language quite well--but their accent is getting in the way of great communication.
