What is Accent Freedom®?

Accent Freedom® is an in-depth accent reduction (sometimes called accent modification or accent neutralization) software package. It was designed for individuals who speak English as their second language who wish to speak more efficiently and effectively in English by reducing their accents. Please note that this is not an ESL (English as a Second Language) curriculum that teaches vocabulary and grammar; it was written for professionals who already speak English at a moderate to advanced conversational level to improve their Standard American English pronunciation. The platform can be used as Self-Study or Instructor-Led.

Who can benefit from using Accent Freedom®?

Non-native English speakers from all professions and language backgrounds can benefit from this program. Due to the online platform, there are no geographic limitations to use this program and/or take part in this training. Professionals living in all parts of the world can take advantage of this helpful tool whether you choose self-study or instructor-led.

What is a “language specific” course?

Language specific courses are courses that are tailored to speakers of a specific native language. For example, native Spanish speakers would have very different problem areas than a native Mandarin speaker. Streamlining your practice so you work on only the lessons that are pertinent to your particular needs saves you time.
