Accent Modification Program

Our Approach

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. Fairview offers group classes and private tutoring to help you improve your spoken English.

Small Group Classes (maximum five students per class)

Our speech therapists will help you learn correct pronunciation. You’ll also get handouts and a CD so you can practice your new speaking skills.

The seven-week class is for people who have a better-than-average command of English. In particular, they:

  • Are native speakers of English with regional dialects.
  • Speak with very mild foreign accents.
  • Need overall speech improvement.

The 13-week class is a good fit for those who have an average command of English. In particular, they:

  • Are not native speakers of English.
  • Speak with foreign accents.
  • Need overall and specific speech improvements.

Private tutoring

Both the seven-week and 13-week courses are also available as a privately tutored class.
