One of the goals of the Arizona Language Center¹s Pronunciation course is to focus on accent reduction.
Accent elimination is a virtually impossible goal therefore, students focus on reducing specific pronunciation challenges that have made it difficult for native English speakers to understand them.Benefits of Accent Reduction Training:
- Enhanced interpersonal interaction
- Increased confidence in the speaker
- Increased potential for professional advancement
- Increased employee productivity and safety, including prevention of time-consuming (and potentially costly) misunderstandings in the work place
- Expanded business negotiations and opportunities
- Reduced client frustration due to communication inaccuracies
Many international professionals who have studied English for years may still have problems communicating effectively due to a lack of proper pronunciation. Incorrect pronunciation can result in misunderstandings between customers and co-workers as well as time-consuming repetition. Companies that choose to invest in their employees in the area of pronunciation and accent reduction, minimize time and productivity losses in the workplace. Language training provides the invaluable benefit of eliminating the potentially harmful effects of poor communication.
