What is it?
Accent modification or accent reduction is the de-accentuation of English. When you learn a new language you will typically have an accent influenced by your native, or more dominant, language. When speaking in the new language, English in this case, you may have a very thick accent that makes it difficult for people to understand you and to communicate with you.

This communication barrier can affect a business very seriously. Many companies are employing the services of accent modification specialists such as myself to help improve their employee’s communication skills so that they will be more effective and successful. Companies such as banks, hospitals, airlines, real estate agents, restaurants, and also business schools, medical schools, and individual entrepreneurs, and many more are seeking out accent reduction services to give their companies the edge over their competition.

Who is it for? Anyone ages 18 and older who has learned English as a new/foreign language and has reached a level of English that is at least an upper intermediate level, preferably higher, and have at least a moderately thick accent when speaking English from their native/dominant language.  This program is for people whose thick accent has caused limitations or barriers in their communicative effectiveness.  Perhaps your thick accent makes it too difficult for people to understand you and so you lose business, or you lose opportunities, etc.  This program is for people who are highly motivated and willing to put the practice into it. People who practice at least 1 hour per day can expect at least a 50% improvement by the end of the program, according to the research behind this program.

This is not for people who think they can just buy the program and not take any action. You absolutely MUST be willing and motivated to put the work into it. It is quite common for people who practice really hard to improve much greater than the 50% minimum expectation.  This program is also not for people with a very mild accent. You must have at least a moderately thick accent with at least 19 sounds that need to be worked on.

What does the program consist of? The online program consists of one-hour training sessions with me via Skype, Zoom, or Google Hangouts for 13 weeks. The same program is available in person if you are in Warsaw, Poland.  You are required to practice and do homework for 1 hour per day. People who practice at least 1 hour per day can expect at least a 50% improvement by the end of the program. This program is research based and has a proven track record of success with people from all over the world. The practice/homework is done via an online student portal which you will have lifetime access to after purchase. You can record speech samples which I am able to later check and give feedback. There are also listening and practice tools you can use with various exercises. This also includes a recording function for immediate feedback where you can listen to a recording of the word then record yourself and then play both recordings back to practice approximating the correct pronunciations more and more.

The first step is to do an assessment of your current speech. It is an essential and necessary part of the program because then I will be able to completely customize the entire program to the sounds (consonants and vowels) you need to work on to make the biggest difference in your speech.  This program is completely customized to each person (even for the group sessions if you buy a group bundle).  If you try the free screening you will see what the full assessment is like.  The full assessment is similar to the free screening, only it is much longer, taking about 45 minutes long to complete (online, at your own convenience).  I then receive the audio files and proceed to meticulously phonetically transcribe all deviations from Standard American English to complete a thorough professional phonetic analysis of your speech which will allow me to produce a detailed “Master Plan” for our 13-week program. You will receive a report of this assessment.

Also, with my background as a speech therapist, I also work on all aspects of your communication skills and so we will work on intonation, rhythm, and all of the metalinguistic prosodic elements of language in the English language in words, phrases, sentences, and conversation. I teach you how to feel the correct pronunciation in your mouth and then develop muscle memory with repeated practice.  English pronunciation is not just about the sounds of speech, it is also about the rhythm, intonation, and how you use your voice. An accent modification program is not complete unless it includes all these aspects of training, and the COMPTON PESL program done by a trained speech pathologist such as myself does include these critical elements of training.

Is it really at least a 50% improvement? 

Based on research with thousands of clients, everyone who practices diligently and has non-disordered speech and hearing have historically shown an improvement of at least 50%. Based on anecdotal reports of thousands of instructors who have used the method, clients have typically often achieved a 60-80% improvement rate. Individuals who do not practice what they learn in each session will not likely achieve similar results.
