What are the Benefits of accent reduction?

Improving your speech clarity can improve every area of your life including academic, career and business opportunities, relationships, and self-confidence. Studies show that unfortunately,  people judge intelligence by the way we speak and having a heavy foreign accent or regional dialect can affect the way others perceive you. If you speak English fluently yet an accent or dialect makes it difficult to be understood, this program is perfect for you.
