An Introduction to Accent Training – Learn to Communicate Clearly Confidently

Tuesday, 22 September 2020
15:00 - 16:00 BST
FREE and open to all

Accent training is a very useful communication skill, especially for expats or those who migrate to other countries. In this webinar, Sylvie Lui, Founder and Executive Coach of SLVC will offer you insight into how accent training can enhance your communication skills.

There is a deep-rooted history in accents, especially in the UK, and sometimes the thoughts and feelings around this interferes with learning an accent purely as a skill. Many expats who migrate to work in English-speaking countries, such as the USA, Canada and UK, feel that they need to up-skill via accent training in order to be heard by the native speaker around them.

Often, many non-native speakers will find frustration in their journey of communicating in a language that is not their own.

Sylvie Lui’s ethos and philosophy in accent training can help individuals feel more included, celebrate their mother tongues and help them to find a better way to fit in and be understood by the communities, friends and colleagues at work.
