Effective communication is critical to both personal and business success. If you speak English as a Second Language, poor pronunciation may prevent effective communication. For many people, the poor pronunciation of their English causes problems communicating with employers, clients, colleagues and members of their local community.

If your English pronunciation is causing a problem for you in your studies, career and social life, Australian Accent And Pronunciation can help.

If you are a person who speaks English as a Second Language and you are wanting to secure an internship, succeed at interviews or advance your career, there are many things you can do to improve your English speaking skills.

You need to slow your speech down. Become more aware of how you are speaking English, not just what you are saying. You also need to try to separate each of your words. Try recording a conversation in English with a friend (with their consent), then listen to your recording and assess how easy it would be for someone to understand your English speech.

Slowing down and separating your words will help to give an interviewer, clients or colleagues, time to hear and understand you. When you speak quickly and/or join your words together, people have to work really hard to understand what you are saying … especially over the phone.

Many of our clients have very good English reading and writing skills. For most of our clients however, their knowledge and skills have not been recognised by interviewers or employers due to problems pronouncing English vocabulary.

Some of our clients have spent a lot of time and money attending English Language Courses. Whilst their ability to read and write English has improved, they have been very disappointed as they have not improved their ability to speak English more clearly.

There are very specific mouth positions that need to be learned and practiced in order to be able to pronounce the English sounds correctly and clearly.

Australian Accent And Pronunciation specialises in teaching the sounds of English speech and has done so for hundreds of students and professionals from more than 75 different countries, who understand the importance of speaking English clearly when interviewing or presenting at University or in the workplace at meetings with colleagues and/or clients.

We encourage you to prioritise the development of clear, confident and professional English speech.
