Accent modification or accent neutralization, is a systematic approach for learning or adopting a new accent. This training will help participants to learn and hear their own sound system and accent. This training will help participants analyze their own way of using their mouth, teeth, and tongue to form vowels and consonant sounds. This 3-hour continuing education course will examine the complexity of voice and will allow participants the opportunity to have a personal coach to assist participants with techniques to adjust and modify accent impact in communication.

This training will be held at Catholic Charities Fort Worth.
