Does correct English pronunciation seem impossible to achieve on your own? It’s so difficult right? The spelling is confusing. Nothing like your first language where the letters actually make sense and link to a sound. Also, why is it so hard to hear the difference between how you are saying a word and what native speakers actually say? What are you actually doing wrong? And then there is speaking at work to your colleagues, clients or managers… When work is super busy, how can you stop your pronunciation getting in the way and distracting your listener so that you can start feeling comfortable when speaking English? You just want to engage in conversations more confidently so your pronunciation is no longer a barrier to your career.

STEP 5How Many Sessions Will I need?
Once your assessment is completed you can proceed direct into your chosen pronunciation training program with our team.
Accent reduction is a detailed process, especially since English has a lot of features to cover. It takes time to learn how to practise your English speaking. We train you with a research approach based on motor learning and therapy principles that does not fit a single session approach.
We strongly recommend weekly sessions and discourage you from attending on a fortnightly basis. This is because of research into muscle memory and motor learning.
In the early stages of training at Voice Science it is critical that a scientific method is applied to advance your learning. Home practice between your sessions will be designed with the core goal of you actively and carefully producing your target sounds. You will be instructed in the process of how to create your sound and monitor it’s accuracy as you produce it.
