Accent Modification Program
Part I. A Six-Week Introductory Course
This program gives students practical information to use in everyday speech. Special emphasis is placed in teaching English prosody skills and modeling correct production of common articulation and grammatical errors transferred from the student's native language. The introductory course is helpful because it is a quick, easy way to teach students basic techniques and strategies to use in their daily speech. It also gives students the confidence they need to move onto a more intensive therapy program.
Part II. Intensive Therapy Program
Focus is on effective mastery of the techniques learned in the introductory course as well as emphasis on figurative language (idioms, multiple meaning words, etc) and other more advanced speech patterns. Therapy at this level is individualized according to the needs of the student and the native language he speaks.
