Accent Reduction Portland Seminar September: The "Th" Sounds!

Welcome to our monthly accent reduction meeting! This event is a great way to learn how to communicate more effectively and efficiently speaking English, all while sharing food and drink and meeting friends from throughout the world.

Please bring an appetizer and/or drink to share. As we eat we'll converse, get to know one another, and maybe make some new international friends.

After this I'll teach for approximately one hour on how to speak with less of an accent.

The topic this month is "The Th Sounds". These sounds (yes, there are two different sounds!) are very difficult for people who speak English as a Second Language to make - almost everyone seems to have struggle with them! In his seminar I'll show you, in "slow motion" :) how to correctly make both sounds. We'll then practice them naturally at the sound level and then in words and sentences. You should be better able to pronounce these sounds by the end of our event.

Since interest in our events is very strong please do not RSVP unless you can attend.

This event is for persons who speak English as a Second Language only.

Thanks and see you then!

    I am Spanish. It would be great to join and meet people over there. And yeah, "th" is one of the sounds I have to deal with too often.
