What could you achieve from our Accent Softening course?

LEAVE MISUNDERSTANDING BEHIND

We’ll work with you on every sound that is leading to confusion, misunderstanding or blank looks, so that when you open your mouth to speak, your words come out as you intended.

BOLDLY SHARE YOUR IDEAS

The Serlin Method™ demystifies how to be a good communicator in British English, so you can achieve your goals and share your ideas in a way that feels authentic and confident.

BE FULLY YOURSELF IN ENGLISH

Having a mastery over the English language is not about losing your accent, but about knowing how to use the language effectively to achieve your goals. We give you the tools  so you can do just that.

RECREATE THE MELODY OF NEUTRAL SPOKEN ENGLISH

Each language has its own melody, and English is no different. Our simple intonation technique can  be learnt in minutes, helping you sound and feel like a native.

Our way of teaching Accent Softening

Our method for accent reduction is completely unique. What sets us apart is that we get this is so much more than perfect British English pronunciation. This is about confident communication that makes people want to listen. We are passionate about giving our clients tools so they can be confident and fully themselves when they communicate in English. And that means they need clear pronunciation, tools for intonation, and the keys to make the language their own. That’s what we do, and that is why our coaching is so powerful. 

START WITH A TASTER

Beginning on the journey to soften your accent and improve your communication is a big step. This one-hour session gives you a roadmap of your accent, so you know exactly where it lies, and gives you our intonation tool so you can make a difference to your communication from the very first session.

ONE TO ONE TAILORED COACHING

Whether you would like to be a great communicator in English and keep your accent or want to lose your accent altogether, your coach will create a bespoke course to fit your needs and support you with our practice methodology so you can make changes that last.

THE PRACTICALS

Each one-to-one session is an hour long and delivered online (via skype or zoom). You will be given a 100+ page Accent Softening manual packed with Serlin Method™ resources, your  practice plan and weekly assignments.

RECORDING IN EVERY SESSION

You will be recorded in every session so that you can hone your ability to hear different sounds and measure your progress. At the end of your course you will compare your recordings from the first and final sessions to hear how far you’ve come!

Taking the course online means you can learn in the comfort of your home, so no matter what life throws at you, you can continue your personal and career development and use your time to grow.

“I think it worked really well using Zoom and recording the sessions, I was able to look at them and play them back and practice some of the things that I needed to work on so it worked really well doing that, and I think it was the key – allowing me to see what we had done and rewind it and replay it, it was really good actually.” – J.C. 2020
STEPS FOR SUCCESS

To make the online sessions truly powerful and effective, as much like the real thing as we can, the most important thing is to make sure to have a few things ready –>

1. LAPTOP & WIFI

We recommend using a Laptop for your online session. You will want your hands free for some of the exercises so you can’t be holding a phone or tablet. Make sure you have a quiet place to concentrate.

2. PHONE

Many exercises will require you to record yourself and play it back during the session. So be sure to have your phone (or another recording device) handy.

3. COURSE MANUAL

We will send you a PDF version of the Course Manual. We recommend that you have this printed out or available to view on a separate tablet.

Our Methodology

Our accent softening methodology incorporates techniques from a wide range of disciplines and brings it together in a creative, fun, simple and intuitive way.

Our accent softening methodology is adapted to different learning styles, so whether you are an aural, visual or kinaesthetic learner, you will get what you need from this course.

We use established ideas from neuroscience and what we know about brain plasticity to help you have a speedy uptake of the new sounds, rewiring your brain so that you can get to a place where great, clear communication is automatic

Your brain absorbs information best when you are relaxed and alert which is why we use games make it fun and increase your learning. Win win.

We have figured out what you need to know in order to use the English language not like a local but like a pro. These are the same tools we teach our native English speaking clients and they work.

Accents are so important. They hold our identity, and it is important not to make them the scapegoat of less than perfect communication. It is not necessary to lose your accent altogether to be a great communicator in English,  We understand this and the nuance around accents and our course is developed with a sensitivity and respect around these issues.

 

We use metaphors and each session has a touch of magic to make learning stimulating and fun. From the role plays through to the exercises and tips, the process is visual and pleasurable, and the more relaxed you are, the better you learn.
