Seven Secrets for Reducing Strong Accents

Congratulations on embarking on this journey.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

Chinese Proverb

We’ve been helping people with strong accents communicate effectively for over fifteen years. We’ve learnt a lot about the subject over that time. The course that you’re about to experience is the sum of research, study and a lot of feedback from people who have been through this before.

It’s also built on my own experience of arriving in Australia for the first time over twenty years ago. English is my mother tongue. However, because my northwestern English accent was a lot stronger than it is now, and I didn’t know a lot of local vocabulary I had a small hill to climb to make myself understood. This despite the fact that I have Australian heritage on my mother’s side.

When we arrived I often got grumbled at for being a “Pommy”. These days I get complimented on my accent. People can still tell where I come from by my accent, but now it’s an asset not a liability. We believe that your accent is something to cherish not eliminate, that’s why we talk about accent reduction and not accent elimination or modification. It’s about toning it down a bit so people can understand you without losing your personality and most importantly your identity.
