Do people have a hard time understanding what you say due to your accent? We can help. Fairview’s Accent Modification program can teach you to improve your spoken English through group classes or individual tutoring. Our speech therapist uses the highly successful Compton P-ESL Method to help you learn correct pronunciation. You’ll also get handouts and a CD to help you practice new speaking skills every day.
Small Group Classes (maximum five students per class)
The seven-week class is for people who have a better-than-average command of English. In particular, they:
- Speak with very mild foreign accents.
- Are native English speakers with regional dialects.
- Need overall speech improvement.
The 13-week class is a good fit for those who have an average command of English. In particular, they:
- Speak with foreign accents.
- Are not native English speakers.
- Need overall and specific speech improvements.
Both the seven-week and 13-week courses are available on a private tutoring basis.
