You may have studied English for years, and you may have strong skills, especially in reading and writing.

When you talk with our conversation partners, always a native speaker of English, you will get an accurate language model. Not only will you be exposed to current slang, proper pronunciation, and social uses of language, but you will receive corrections on your language when it might lead to misunderstandings. You can talk about a variety of topics, such as getting to know each other, American culture, worlds news, tv or movies, etc. Conversation sessions will last 30 minutes. All sessions will be held via the internet using Skype or a similar program.

Accent Modification- English

45 minute session

Pronunciation is a major contributor to difficulty being understood in another language. Even when the speaker is aware of what errors they are making, they may not have the knowledge or skill to correct themselves. During our accent modification sessions a pronunciation specialist (Speech-Language Pathologist, Linguist, or TESOL instructor) will work with you on specific errors and improving overall intelligibility. The first session will always be an evaluation to assess your current level and future goals. Accent Modification sessions will last 45 minutes. All sessions will be held via the internet using Skype or a similar program.

Pronunciation Evaluation - English

~60 minute session

Proper pronunciation is the most difficult thing to learn in a second language when you do not have access to a native speaker model. Often a language learner is not aware of the mistakes they are making. This evaluation, administered by a trained Pronunciation Specialist (Speech-Language Pathologist, Linguist, or TESOL instructor),  will cover all of the sounds in English in both read and spontaneous speech as well as word stress and common prosodic contours. Within a week of this evaluation, you will receive a report via email outlining the errors you are making in English pronunciation. Pronunciation Evaluations take approximately one hour (though a session may be shorter or longer depending on individual speech patterns) and cost $120. All sessions will be held via the internet using Skype or a similar program.
