Accent softening

 

Our accents are part of who we are - but sometimes we may need to soften them to be easier understood in a work, corporate or personal context. I have coached hundreds of international and regional clients to communicate confidently in any environment.

Key areas I focus on: 

  • Differences between your accent to 'Neutral Standard English.'
  • Identifying specific challenges and ways to overcome them.
  • Integrating the changes into everyday conversation.
