If you have a strong overseas accent you'll know that it can be socially isolating, at times frustrating and even make you feel inferior or inadequate.
Wherever you come from, your accent is a part of your personality. It defines your nationality; people you've spent time with and places you've lived. The way you speak can also reveal your personal expectations and aspirations. Accents can be charming, exotic, even exciting but they can also be a barrier to communication.
Although you will have studied English you still find that you have to repeat yourself, sometimes people just look at you blankly or you can tell that they simply can’t be bothered to make the effort. Worse than these everyday annoyances, is the depressing fact that you can’t get the promotion you deserve at work or you miss out on business opportunities.
The trick is to turn your accent into an advantage. If you’d like to learn more about reducing your accent then try our free introductory lesson today by clicking on the link below.
