Accent Reduction Portland Oregon Seminar December: Difficult Vowel 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 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 "Difficult Vowel Sounds". There are several vowels sounds that sound very similar to each other. I'll teach you how to hear how these sounds are different and how to make these sounds. We'll practice these sounds in words and sentences and I'll provide you with a home practice program to improve on your own.

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!
