ANNOUNCING: Upcoming Small-Group Class
“American Accent Training
for Russian Speakers”
6 Wednesdays beginning May 31st, 2017
7:30 – 8:30 pm
~ No more than 6 students – Register now ~
Have you wanted to work on your W’s and V’s but just haven’t been able to practice intensively? Do you have trouble pronouncing “girl”, “won’t” and “theater”…?
This intensive course will help you correct the sounds your Russian (or Eastern European) accent distorts. We will also cover stress and intonation patterns and commonly mispronounced words.
Work on Russian substitutions for American sounds, in both reading and conversation.
We’ll also look at stress patterns for the “connector” words of English: an American English accent secret you will finally get right.
Is there a word you hate or avoid or just wonder about? You’ll have a chance to cover your “Word-of-the-Week” in every class.
When you register, you’ll also sign up for your 1:1 Skype evaluation with the program director – so that we can tailor the curriculum best for you.
Home practice materials, including mp3 recordings and texts, will be emailed to you for every session.
Never miss a class! All sessions are recorded and will be emailed to absent participants, along with handouts and recordings.
Last day to register: Friday, May 26th
