Learn About Our Individual Speech, Accent and Voice Sessions
Individual sessions will focus on ear training; you will learn to hear the difference between your pronunciation and that of Standard American English (neutral, mainstream, unaccented).

You will be instructed in the placement of your articulators - your lips, your teeth and your tongue - to facilitate easy production of your new sounds.

Through the use of carefully crafted drill sheets, you will practice the new sounds in words and sentences. You will be provided with immediate feedback and correction, so that you can gain confidence and consistency in producing your new sound.

Testimonial: Italian Accent Modification

Removing European Accent - Little Italian Boy“I was born and raised in Italy. I moved to the US in 2004 with a good knowledge of the written language and an accent that was a “pastiche” of Italian and British English. I never thought my accent was a problem, quite the opposite, people in NY always told me my accent was cute and exotic. I was first faced with the fact that people did not understand me in 2010, when I was a finalist on a popular show called “The Next Food Network Star” and the judges told me that I came across as stressed and scattered when I was speaking on camera. No matter what I tried my fast accented speech kept getting in the way. Enter Susan Sankin, who was recommended by a friend in the “business”. Susan quickly identified the sounds I was missing and we started working on hearing the difference between what I was saying and what I really meant. The whole process was eye opening and humbling and I confess I was even a little embarrassed because I realized how easily I could be misunderstood or even put myself in hilarious albeit uncomfortable situations. Susan has helped me immensely with my accent and my speech: she gave me my “h”, “th”, “or”, “ah” and many more! After a few months I can hear my mistakes, correct myself and I feel like I have strongly improved. It is a work in progress of course but Susan has made it fun and entertaining for me, even when she corrects the Southern Italian in me! People may tell you that you can improve your accent by yourself; that you only need to listen carefully and speak slowly. In my humble opinion, when you have a problem you go to a specialist. And when you have an accent problem you need to go to Susan Sankin.”
