Training Options for Accent Modification/Accent Reduction


 

SpeechPros offers Individual, Small and Large Group Accent Training Programs.  Regardless of your schedule or budget, we have the perfect program for you!

 

Individual Training

Customized session packages begin with a Comprehensive Evaluation.  Training packages are typically 10-15 sessions depending on the specific needs and goals of the individual.  Individual sessions are approximately 1 hour in length.  Focus is on improving the production of specific speech sounds, and learning and practicing intonation patterns in American English and how they impact the meaning and intelligibility of speech.  In addition, idiomatic expressions and vocabulary relevant to the individuals work environment are addressed.  

Individual Training is ideal for those who prefer the individualized attention of one-to-one instruction. There is more flexibility with a private program than with our group programs. Whether your accent is slight or heavy when speaking English, a private program can be developed to meet your exact requirements. In addition, if work schedules or travel plans vary, sessions may be scheduled at the convenience of the client.

Small Group Training

Small Group Training is an excellent and popular alternative to individual sessions that allows participants to learn from one another.  Group training is often times a more cost effective means of accent modification training.  Sessions are typically 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Group sizes typically range from 2 to 6 individuals. (Diverse cultural backgrounds are welcome!)  The training session content is based on the participants' collective and individual needs.  Customized session packages begin with a Comprehensive Evaluation for each participant.  Training packages are typically comprised of 10-15 sessions depending on the specific needs and goals of the individuals and the group.

 

Large Group Training

SpeechPros also provides accent training for larger groups.  Large group training focuses on more generalized participant needs but may include more individualized break-out sessions and homework assignments. Sessions are typically 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Group sizes typically range from 7 to 12 individuals. (Diverse cultural backgrounds are welcome!)  The training session content is based on the participants' collective and individual needs.  A brief evaluation is completed to assess specific participant needs.  Training packages are typically comprised of 10-15 sessions depending on the specific needs and goals of the individuals and the group.
