Clarity Accent Modification

The Clarity Accent Modification podcast is committed to teaching adults how to modify their speech to be better understood in social or professional settings. Learn how to pronounce American vowels and consonants correctly, and understand the differences in rhythm, pitch, and syllable stress that can make you more or less intelligible to others. English is not always spelled the way it is pronounced, and tricky words are discussed. Be more confident speaking with friends, family, co-workers and clients. Communication is a key factor in business and social relationships, so if you are living or working with Americans, modifying your accent so that you are better understood can increase your confidence.
