Our Accent Modification Program at American Cultural Immersion provides group and individual services for adults for whom English is not their first language in order to improve communicative effectiveness and confidence through instruction and practice.
In this Program, participants learn to develop competency with the prosodic features of Mainstream American English or MAE (stress, rhythm, pitch, intensity and intonation) and convey meaning and intent through individual words as well as simple and complex messages in formal and casual speech.
Participants are given practice to increase their phonological awareness and production of the English phonemes through rhyming, segmentation and elision tasks. English language learners attending this program, become familiar with the functional application of common American idiomatic expressions for improved understanding and use and have opportunities to practice them in casual speech.
These services normally include an evaluation which consists of an interview, assessment and preliminary feedback immediately following the evaluation itself. Additionally a follow-up written report is provided in order to document evaluation results and recommendations.
