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.
Great attention to each individual. Great course material. Great value for money. It is one of the most life changing courses I have ever attended.
Thank you so much! It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with you. I saw vast improvements in my effectiveness as a speaker from day 1 and am very proud of what we’ve achieved over the last couple of months. In fact, the transformation has been so remarkable, I’d rather keep you secret!
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.
Each one-to-one session is an hour long and delivered online (via skype or zoom). You will be given a 250+ 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!

Accents are so important. They hold our identity, and it is important not to make them the scapegoat of less than perfect communication.
