Accent Modification

It is natural and beautiful to have an accent! However, Standard American English, for better or worse, is the language of choice in professional, academic, and certain social circles in the United States, and your non-native or non-standard accent may be attracting unwanted attention in your spoken interactions. A number of speech parameters can contribute to an accent. Areas for improvement may include the following:

  • Articulation
  • Stress and rhythm
  • Intonation
  • Blending
  • Overall speech fluency
  • Linguistic and cultural comparisons
