Does Your Accent Hold You Back? Improve Your Accent Today!

Heavy accents, slurred speech or talking too fast can cause listeners to become prejudiced. It’s not just your speech; it’s the listeners’ ears.

You can learn techniques to correct your errors and change your speech habits, so people can become more interested in what you are saying instead of how you are saying it.

About Eric B.

My name is Eric Bruner and I started Fast Accent Reduction as a way to help non-native English speakers learn to speak American style English, giving them a great sense of confidence in the clarity and effectiveness of their communication. I work with individuals of all English speaking ability and age levels, as well as group and corporate training.

I've pursued my passion of helping speakers and singers improve their voices for over 30 years. I've taught speech/accent improvement in a variety of settings, from individuals of every age ability level and age, to courtroom lawyers wanting to be more persuasive with their voices, to employees from such companies as Exxon-Mobil or Dianal America (a subsidiary of Mitsubishi) helping them improve their communication with internal and external clients.

Even in their first lesson, students experience greater clarity in their speech as they are led through the first few exercises. By the end of the lesson, they have already experienced a reduction in their accents.

Students notice their speech improving as they go through a few short exercises each day. It really is that easy!

It is my goal to work myself out of a job by striving to teach students to be their own best teacher. In other words, I want my students to quickly identify their own unique pronunciation challenges so they can apply the right solution to dramatically reduce their accent.

I have been singing in Choirs and Bands for a number of years and learned more about my voice and singing properly in a 45 minute session with Eric than I have in all my years of performing. I now understand why I have been struggling to sing in my upper register and Eric has put together a personalized program to help me develop my voice and gain back my vocal range. Eric has a great sense of humor and made the session very enjoyable as well as informative. I look forward to my next session and would highly recommend Eric as an instructor.

Eric has coached me for more than two years. Each lesson was personalized and has helped me to improve gradually. As I could download the recording of the lesson, I was able to practice between lessons. Eric has been very supportive and was very open to my unique music taste. I really feel comfortable now singing thanks to him.
