This course is about how to learn to say the 44 sounds in English (including the 20 vowel international phonics sounds) quickly and to reduce your accent audibly. A suggested twice a week course. We will cover the most important phonics/sounds that my clients - from India, China, France, Russia, Brazil, Spain and so on - have the most problems with doing business in the US/Silicon Valley. You don't have to go through all the lectures, just pick the areas you feel you still have to work on and practice the words diligently. You will see the slides that go with the video and most of the time, I also uploaded additional practice materials. If you work on your English pronunciation consistently, you will see results really fast. Master the American Accent book will be provided (228 pages). Who this course is for: You need to know some spoken American English already to benefit from the course. But, since this is an American English speaking course with lots of examples, if you practice a lot, you will be successful and will master American English. We will cover all 44 phonic sounds of the English language An English Curriculum and Instructor for 20 years, I always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I have created a proven, groundbreaking, easy to understand, result oriented approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely (don't worry, it doesn't involve you singing LOL!). The ONLY way we can learn the American Accent is to retrain our tongue and soft palette muscles to create these American sounds and rhythms that your body is just not used to making. I will be providing you with specific exercises focusing on the sound and feel of specific American "Targeted" sounds and how they link to each and every consonant. In addition, I will share specific singing techniques to help create reliable muscle memory that you can call upon instantly. This technique has helped so may of my accent reduction students master the American Accent a lot faster. By the end of this course you would have gone through every possible combination of sounds. There will be nothing you will come across that we haven't covered in your practice. Our goal is to make sure these improvements are retained, so you can call upon them when you need them. That will involve practicing on your end. If you commit to the practice exercises you will improve much more rapidly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level! Who this course is for: Anyone whose first language isn't English Anyone who want to master the American Accent Anyone who wants to improve their communication skills Anyone who want to master outstanding communication skill in their business and personal lives

Along with the other subjects I teach that include voice and speech, I wanted to post another that spoke directly to those that suffer from a stutter. I too had a horrible stutter when I was much younger and through much therapy, I learned to completely eliminate it from my speech pattern. I believe I can do the same for you.
