Communication Skills for Business Professionals (Accent Reduction Training) - Consultation (Province-wide)


This course provides communication solutions for those with unintelligible accented speech. Many business professionals who have strong accents often feel that their accent is a barrier to communication.

This barrier can prevent individuals from fostering good working relationships with their clients and colleagues. It can also prevent individuals from making phone calls, pitching business presentations, presenting workshops etc.

Learning Outcome

We will be exploring different topics to train the muscles of the mouth to produce North American sounds based on the problem areas of the client. These proven clinical techniques will result in the acquisition of an excellent professionally and socially enhancing North American accent that will help individuals to speak clearer and relate better at work and in social situations. It will help business owners to have the confidence they need to communicate in everyday business environments.

Training By

L2 Accent Reduction Centre

The L2 Accent Reduction Centre was established to address the growing communication needs of Vancouver's multicultural workforce.

When we opened our doors in May 2008, we knew that there was a lack of services for skilled professionals. Although there were many ESL courses available, we acknowledged that skilled professionals needed training that goes beyond ESL. Most skilled professionals are highly fluent in English, and yet there are many barriers that cannot often be pinpointed.

At the L2 Accent Reduction Centre we have developed effective techniques that help people to overcome the subtleties of the English language, whether that is instruction in accent reduction (training the muscles of the mouth), techniques for writing professionally, or techniques to help one sound more professional through voice projection, word usage, and portraying a successful professional demeanour.
