Accent Transformation & Pronunciation Skills
This class helps students with accent training, clear speaking, and listening comprehension with the goal of improving their overall communication skills.
It is an intensive program that uses a variety of interactive pronunciation and listening exercises to help students reduce their accents and improve discrete listening skills.
Through interactive pronunciation exercises, students practice creating the correct sounds and discover different ways to improve their ability to speak English clearly with a more natural pace and flow.
VAE’s Accent Transformation Course is designed to help students reduce their native accent, improve their listening comprehension and to speak clearly. The primary objective of the Accent Transformation Course is to assist students with building and improving their overall communication skill.
Our listening comprehension exercises include important vocabulary-building activities and dictation exercises to help build students communication skills. Our specific listening activities are combined with a comprehensive overview of English sounds to help students develop their discrete listening skills and clear speech.
To help foster student’s progress, our course includes regular assessments so that students can see how much they can progress in just 4 weeks.
