Why Alex engaged Accent on Speech

After having lived in Australia for 10 years, Alex thought it was time to address the problems he had been having regarding his English mispronunciations.

“The 7-week program looked brilliant to help increase my awareness and begin to address my issues.”

How Accent on Speech assisted Alex

Alex undertook the 7-week individual program in May 2019, completing a 2-hourly session with a qualified speech pathologist once a week. His course was specifically tailored to his interests and the areas that he needed to work on. At the end of his program, Alex saw a 54% improvement in reducing his English mispronunciations. Well done Alex!

“I very much enjoyed my program, it increased my awareness of issues I did not know I had. The program assisted me with word combinations, identifying where I was incorrect and then fixing these to improve my overall English speech.”

Alex’s Remarks

“The one-on-one design of the program is especially great. There is also a program for you to practice at home, which really helped with my overall improvement.”
