American English Pronunciation Training

There is an incorrect notion that accent modification / management or American English pronunciation training serves to eliminate one's accent. This is false. We at Vybrence think accents are beautiful, natural, & should be celebrated. We recognize the stress & effort it often takes non-native speakers to navigate across complex communicative situations. Accents are the result of using the sound rules of your primary language when attempting to speak a new language. 

Many English pronunciation training clients often experience frustration & challenges when speaking American English, as they are:

 



Does this sound familiar??

 Our goal is to help our clients nationally & across the globe to be clearer, effective, & confident communicators across speaking environments by utilizing various evidence-based methods in training sessions. Participants first begin with a complimentary screening and consultation to help us better comprehend your goals & needs. Assessment procedures & training sessions will be outlined during initial consultations.  All accent management instructors are P-ESL certified.  All areas of communication are addressed including pronunciation, non-verbal skills, cultural considerations, social use of language, intonation, stress, rate of speaking, etc. Lifetime access to an online practice program is included in all services.  With diligent home practice & consistent attendance to training sessions, research using the provided method has shown 50% or greater improvement in clarity & accuracy.
 
Group sessions are also available. Contact us for pricing.

Corporate Seminars Series & Workshops

The importance of effect professional communication training is often overlooked in corporations & educational intuitions across the globe. When there are differing verbal & non-verbal behaviors among group members, the frequency of miscommunications & interpretations increases, leading to poor projected outcomes. Ultimately, this is also commonly the culprit that drives low productivity, confidence, respect, & moral among employees or students.

When leaders provide resources and assistance for their employees or students that further their communication skills, they enable them to relay their ideas & expertise with efficiency, clarity, & confidence. This then, in turn, will heighten one's own ability to be an excellent leader for one's institution.
