Course Overview

During your one-on-one sessions, you will acquire the skills to use your mouth, teeth, and tongue to form clear vowel and consonant sounds. You will also acquire the skills required to modify your intonation and stress patterns, increasing your ability to speak clearly and effectively. IGs method is based on a comprehensive individual analysis that identifies key areas that need improvement in your everyday speech: pronunciation, rate of speaking, and detrimental speech patterns. Using existing sound patterns, you will establish new patterns of what linguists term “oral motor behaviors.” That means breaking old speech habits and creating new and better patterns. It’s an intensive process that requires daily practice. That’s why our Accent Reduction training is concentrated, customized, and designed to meet your personal and professional goals.
