Mastering the American Accent: A Workshop for Non-Native Speakers

Events, News

A Workshop to Enhance Student Communication Skills

If English is not your first language, and you would like to work on your speaking and listening abilities, the University Center for Language and Literacy is offering a special program to help master the American accent and build your communication skills. The program will help you “hear” the American accent for better listening, while also helping to improve your own speech. We use speech and language techniques technically known as accent reduction to help non-native speakers feel more at home and confident in their communications with native speakers.

Pathway to Mastering the American Accent

Weekly Sessions Include:

– Group conversations
– A 15-20 minute assessment and discussion of the student’s goals
– Exercises for improving articulation, rate control, and projection
– Guidance from a licensed speech-language therapist
