We often refuse to accept an idea merely because the tone of voice in which it has been expressed is unsympathetic to us ~ Nietzsche
Learn to speak like a native… Discover the secrets to sounding more like a true blue Aussie with accent modification.
Do people often ask you to repeat what you have just said? Is it difficult to understand what you are saying? Is English not your first language? Do you have exams coming up and speaking clearly is a prerequisite? Is your accent causing you communication issues?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you could benefit from an accent modification course. This course is designed to assist you in modifying your accent so that you will be understood more easily by your Australian contemporaries– whether that is in your workplace or in a social situation.
The course will focus upon remedial language skills. We will identify key vowel and consonant sounds that can cause problems for non-native speakers (eg voiced and voiceless ‘th’); explore the idiosyncrasies of Australian English phrasing, such as stresses and discover how we can retain the spirit of your individual voice while making your accent more understandable. Speak English more expressively and be a more effective communicator.
If you are prepared to put in the effort and practice, you will improve and speak clearly with more ease.
