Master your Accent: Navigating American English diction in a modern world

  • CIC Cambridge, Mandalay, 4th Floor 1 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Our voice is our auditory face, and language is how most of us enter the world.  

Spoken language in meetings, interviews, presentations, and pitches are communications challenges for all of us.  These are sometimes complicated by having to do them in a second or third language, especially if we retain our native accent.  Even for native English speakers, regional accents can create barriers when we need to build understanding.

This seminar will help.

In this one hour session, you will start building tools and tricks to help your articulation of spoken American English be clear and easier to understand.  We will also talk about how to navigate accent challenges when presenting to different audiences, and in different sized rooms.

Bring your elevator pitch or a short introduction to work on.

Your accent is a part of you.  You should master it.
