What we're about

Do you hear the phrase "I'm sorry I don't understand you!" too often?

Do you find it hard to make yourself clearly understood? Have you hit the glass ceiling at work and find it hard to get promotion or a new job? Do you find yourself excluded from some social activities? Is it hard to access public services? These and many others are the sort of problem people with strong accents face.

This group aims to help you reduce your strong overseas accent in a friendly supportive atmosphere.

There is an introductory meeting where we cover the "Seven Secrets for Reducing Strong Accents." After that we follow Clearly Talking's proved Accent Reduction Program.

A nominal fee of $25 / session covers materials, tuition and light refreshments. You work with others in the group to keep yourselves on track and practicing between sessions.
