Accent Reduction

Confidence Learning Services - Accent Reduction and English Pronunciation Training
For professionals who have already mastered the English language, and want to communicate more confidently with a Standard American Accent. An accent is simply a habit, and it can be changed with the right guidance and practice in a 13-week course from Confidence Learning Services. Accent Reduction can improve communication in business or personal settings, and clients can enjoy the benefits of no longer repeating themselves many times throughout the day or always explaining the origins of their accent. Each course is personalized to the student's needs and pronunciation difficulties, and most students demonstrate a 50% - 80% improvement between the entrance and exit assessments. Courses are provided on a flexible schedule, on-site throughout the community, or worldwide via Skype. Accent Reduction is ideal for adults who have more than five years experience speaking the English language and are very advanced in their English skills. All services are provided by a licensed English instructor with years of experience. For more information about Accent Reduction, contact Laura Brewer, owner, at 865-226-9477, Laura@ConfidenceLearningServices.com, or visit the website Confidence Learning Services.com.
