Workshop Description

Intensive one day accent reduction training in a small group.

Our accent reduction one day workshops focus on reducing your native language interference in spoken English in a small group setting.

This is a general accent reduction course suitable for all abilities as well as non-native and native speakers who are new to accent reduction training.

The morning session will introduce you to important accent reduction techniques and English elocution exercises as well as correcting any specific weaknesses which you may have.

The afternoon session will be interactive and allow you to practise the techniques which you have learned in a communicative and fun way whilst in a supportive group.

Our one day course allows maximum attention and focuses on your specific native language interference into English correcting weaknesses, reducing regional accents or dialects, defects and language impairment.
