For Indians Living in the US or Canada:
Do you ever speak English with colleagues, neighbors, or even the barista at Starbucks and feel like you aren’t using the same language?
If you are like a lot of clients I have worked with, you get really tired of people asking you to repeat yourself.
It’s frustrating, embarrassing, and sometimes downright demoralizing.
The truth is, it’s not your fault that the other person can’t catch everything you are saying.
American English and Indian English may be the same language, but the pronunciation and cadence can vary tremendously!
Combine this with the fact that many American speakers aren’t used to hearing other accents and you can have a real communication gap.
It can make you feel like you might as well be from another planet.
I have heard the same story from hundreds of people I have worked with over the years.
You are educated. You are good at your job. You are a nice human being.
But there is something that’s not quite right. Something that is holding you back…
I hate to be blunt about it, but it may just be your accent.
If you ever…
1- have people asking you to repeat yourself
2- feel worried about talking on the phone or giving a presentation because you think people won’t understand everything you say
3- get passed over for promotions you deserve because of so-called “weak communication skills”
IT’S ALMOST CERTAINLY AN ACCENT ISSUE.

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!Anand Kathula
