An accent is a beautiful thing.

An accent is simply a result of your native language influencing the pronunciation of a second, new language. There is nothing inherently “wrong” with having an accent, but it can affect your ability to communicate effectively in a variety of personal and professional situations. The goal of accent modification is not for you to “lose” your accent, rather to learn ways to practice new habits to help you improve spoken English and be better understood. The ability to communicate effectively and efficiently in more than one language is a super power and you have found the right coach. My name is Shayne Johnson, the founder of AccentAbility, and I am here to help.
