Accent reduction is the process of modifying a person’s pronunciation so their speech is more easily understood by native speakers. At ALTA, our team of trained accent reduction coaches teach you to speak in a neutral American English accent (also known as “broadcaster English”, which is most commonly used in business English conversations) with vowel and consonant pronunciation training, proper syllable and word stress exercises, and intonation, rhythm and pitch training. We pair you with a dedicated teacher, specialized in the areas you want to improve, to ensure that you get the most benefits out of the program.
We offer online Accent Reduction coaching so you can access one-on-one live training with your teacher from any computer or mobile device through WebEx, the leader in web conferencing. PC users can also record their sessions for later review.*
For corporate clients committing to a set number of programs, we also offer in-person accent reduction classes at our training center in Atlanta, GA.
