Twelve sessions of American accent training is typically purchased by our students who have completed the beginner training as part of the Office Starter Program. This American accent class package includes twelve private (1:1) 50-minute classes in our Chicagoland offices and usually focuses on intermediate and advanced accent reduction strategies. We have offices in Chicago and Naperville, Illinois. Most clients take one class per week and complete the twelve classes within 12-15 weeks. An accent coach who specializes in accent reduction will develop and teach an individualized lesson plan for each private class. A new lesson plan will be written after each consecutive class based on progress from week to week.

Focus on American Accent
Our American accent course will focus on pronunciation, intonation, rhythm, syllable stress, speaking rate, dialect, and industry specific language. We integrate all aspects that create an accent into every lesson starting with the first American accent class. Once you have mastered the American pronunciation and related accent skills, we will turn our attention to intermediate American accent training, which includes conversational speech.
Finally, our advanced training includes the use of technical language from your industry and complex multi-syllabic word pronunciation during conversational speech. Some clients also practice and rehearse professional speaking for presentations. Previous clients of Accent Pros, with a high percentage of foreign accent, have always achieved a reduction of 50% in their accent by completing the beginner twelve sessions of the Office Starter Program, but many choose to continue their accent reduction training to further achieve their accent reduction goals.
