Does Accent Coaching work? Can I really change my accent?

If you have the same tongue, lips, teeth, palate and ears as other people, you can physically speak like them. You can speak like anybody else, with any accent. Actors do this frequently when they act different roles.  Speaking, or pronunciation, is a motor act which requires learning.  If you know what to do, you will be able to do it. Accent Coaching works by showing you what to do and what not to do. Then you need to practice and take on board, the feedback received, so you can master the pronunciation skills you want.

How easy or difficult is it to change my accent?

Some people have a gift or talent for languages and speaking, others find it more difficult. If you can tune your ears in to what is being demonstrated, you will find it easy.

Furthermore, people who practice consistently every day and adapt according to the feedback received, will find they fare better than those who don’t practice.

Thirdly, people who create frequent opportunities to chat to native English speakers will find it easier than people who seldom speak to native English speakers.

How long does it take to change my accent?

Time taken is affected by your original accent and how different it is from Standard English, by your diligence in practicing as required, by your opportunities to talk to native English speakers, and by your own talent for speaking.  Improvements can be seen after just 5 sessions.

Do you work with children?

We work with people who have already developed some competence in English language. If children are already familiar with English, they can benefit from accent coaching. 

Will Accent Coaching help me get a job?

Most employers are keen to support and hire people from other countries and cultures, as diversity in the workplace has many advantages. However, having speech which is difficult to understand may be seen as a business risk by some employers. Improving your ability to be understood makes good sense if you are seeking employment.
