Best Practices for Teaching English Pronunciation

This is a train-the-trainer program. We teach university faculty how to create accent reduction programs using our proprietary methodology and curricula. Attendees enable their international students to speak with clarity, confidence, and ease.

This training is for speech pathologists, linguists, and/or TESOL instructors.


“Accents International's training enabled our accent coaches at Tennessee State University to provide consistent and professional training to our many faculty and graduate students who are working to reduce their accent. Accents International provides excellent onsite training and dependable follow up. Our accent modification program has improved tremendously.”

Professor, Department of Speech Language Pathology & Audiology, Tennessee State University
