Can You "Fix" an Accent?

There are a number of sounds (and quite a few differences in rhythm and stress) that Americans and Indians use differently.

The weird thing about it is - although you may understand everyone around you, you might not be able to distinguish what they are doing differently from you.

You may know that something doesn't seem quite right, but you often can't figure out what it is.

We, as adults, honestly can't hear the differences in certain sounds until someone points them out. Even then, we have to really tune into those sounds before they begin to appear on our radar.

That's where an accent expert comes in handy.

My name is Sheri Summers and I have been working as a language trainer for more than 25 years with most of those years being specifically related to American English pronunciation and accent training.

I know the weaknesses Indians in the US and Canada have with their accents, and more importantly, how to fix them.

I know how to help you break through communication barriers with as little discomfort as possible.

I'd like to offer you a free, private, no-obligation consultation to discuss your issues and offer some advice that can help you avoid the embarrassing miscommunications that happen from time to time.

Let's schedule a time to speak by phone about your challenges, and I'll give you an expert opinion on how you really sound speaking American English.

Just choose a time that works well for you and we'll get things set up.

I look forward to speaking with you.

I have a new intensive program called Accent Fast Track for Indian professionals working in the US or Canada. Please click here to learn more.

Since going through Sheri's program I have gained loads of confidence. People used to ask me to repeat myself several times a day and now I NEVER get that. I can't believe what a drain it was. Now when I speak, people listen to what I have to say and not how I'm saying it. It has made all the difference in the world!
