American Accent Training
Picture the best speaker you’ve ever heard. Really see them. What set them apart from the rest?
Were their words mumbled?
Did they ramble on and on?
Was their voice tense and small?
Were their thoughts vague and seemingly written by AI?
You most likely are picturing someone who had a message from the heart, with clear enough speech and voice that the stories they told transported you to a specific place and time.
You most likely were left with a strong feeling--maybe of knowing them more intimately, or of wanting to jump into action.
As we move up the professional ladder, we work with our words and brains instead of our hands and bodies. The higher you want to go, the more vital it is to build up these communication skills.
Your curriculum with Audrey will be customized to your needs, goals, and the way you work best.
This translates into a few options for working together:
Communication skills--painting pictures with words, learning how to be more concise, and crafting clear, confident thoughts
Public speaking--improving your presence and ability to perform under pressure (with a coach who teaches celebrities under a lot of pressure)
American accent--Switching on an Americanized sound and identify any speech patterns that make it difficult for others to understand you
Language skills--infusing your English vocabulary with more idioms, correct expressions, and fixing ongoing grammatical issues

"What can I say, I love my classes with Audrey! I was looking for a way to improve my English that I felt maybe a bit too comfortable with. From the first minutes of our first class, I knew she was exactly what I needed. My work with her has been eye-opening, inspiring, frustrating, mind-blowing... but always, always a lot of fun. She pushes me out of my comfort zone (which is where learning happens), yet she is always very encouraging and I really appreciate her professionalism."

I have made a huge progress over a few months working with Audrey, I am now able to approach my daily speech in a more natural, confident and American-like style."
The first time you meet, Audrey will ask you some questions about your background, what you struggle with, and what your goals are.
Together you craft a course that will efficiently and effectively propel you to where you want to be. With all exercises customized to your specific industry needs, you can change your accent, improve your language skills, and master a new confident communication style with a coach who truly cares.
Why Learn an American Accent?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with your natural accent!
However, many people find their accents can pose certain challenges—not being understood at work, discrimination, feelings of language inadequacy. This is where Audrey can help!
After discussing your challenge areas, the two of you begin tackling the speech patterns that will make the most difference first. This may be the flow of the accent, pitch patterns, certain vowels or specific consonants.
If you’re uncomfortable with the idea of changing your voice permanently, Audrey can teach you how to turn your American accent on and off, so you can pull it out when you need it most.
Because everyone learns differently, your customized lesson plan can be as intense as you prefer, with individualized methods that will help unlock your confidence and potential. You can decide the schedule and Audrey works the curriculum around that: meeting once a week, every few days, whenever you have an important speaking event, or any option in between. It’s up to you!
In all sessions, you are welcome to record the class on Zoom so you can practice with it between live sessions.
"Before I met Audrey, I had spent years feeling stuck and frustrated at explaining high level ideas, especially at work. I had always stuttered after a couple minutes of talking. Audrey quickly identified and patiently explained the root of the problems in terms that I could understand. She came up with a sustainable plan to address the problem. Now I feel that I am on my way to living up to my potential at work."
