Frequently Asked Questions

The course is aimed at non-native English speakers who are fluent or near fluent.  The aim of the course is to help you communicate more clearly and confidently, improving not only the sounds and pronunciation, but also your intonation and delivery. Meaning you can be a more powerful and effective communicator in English.  It’s also aimed at people who are looking for a lower price point than our signature 1-to-1 coaching.  You will learn the same methodology and tools but within a group learning environment.
In this course you will learn our proven methodology in 3 days with the intensive small group version of our acclaimed signature Accent Softening course. It includes 18 hours of live learning with an expert LSW coach in a small group setting (maximum 10 people per course). Because we can teach more than 1 person at a time, the course is cheaper than others on our website, but we cover over 80% of the course in the most engaging and effective way possible. If money is not a deciding factor, we would always recommend that you try our 1-to-1 signature course, which means you get a bespoke course tailored for your specific needs and can progress at your own pace.
It’s a great idea to get some additional support if you can, so you can experience some of the bespoke support while benefiting from the group course price. So we offer the Deluxe Package for an extra £150, which gives you the benefit of a Sound Test & Report before the course to identify the key sounds you need to focus on and a Final Report and 15 minute 1:1 session to go through what you’ve acheived and give you a few areas to continue your practise on.
Our method for accent softening and reduction is completely unique. Over 12 years we have had incredible feedback and results with thousands  of clients. What sets us apart is that we get that it is so much more than perfect English pronunciation. This is about confident communication that makes people want to listen. Our approach is sensitive, intelligent and adjusted to different learning styles. It is built around our passion: to give our clients tools so they can be confident and fully themselves when they communicate in English. That’s what we do, and that is why our coaching is so powerful.
For any more questions about the course please don’t hestiate to get in touch on +44 (0)20 3137 6323 or book in a discovery call with our Head of Client Success.
