Accent Reduction

Articulate Training takes a global approach to accent reduction, concentrating on the components of speech which research has shown to have a more immediate effect on intelligibility and the ability to convey meaning. Some include:

  • Stress and intonation: how stressing certain words in a sentence affects meaning, conveys emotion and results in a more "American" accent.
  • Word links: focusing on creating more smooth, connected speech.
  • Helpful tricks: pronunciation tricks, such as acronyms, that can be mastered quickly and easily.
