We love accents! They can be really cool and interesting, and can add spice to our communities. However, when it’s YOUR accent and it’s getting in the way of effective communication, you might want to understand why and find out what changes can be made to improve intelligibility.
Accent Solutions founder, Sue Smith, has a background in Speech-Language Therapy, a Masters degree in sociolinguistics and many years experience working in a multilingual, multicultural environment. Sue is ideally placed to help you identify and change features of your accent that could be affecting intelligibility on the phone or in face-to-face conversations.
We respect everyone’s mother-tongue and culture. We work with you, supporting your personal accent goals and sharing our linguistic insights and experience. Our approach is relaxed and enjoyable, aimed at restoring self esteem, confidence, and a healthy balanced view of the employment situation.
