We all have an accent. When your accent is unfamiliar to those around you, it can sometimes make you feel less confident that you’re bing clear. Often the problem is not yours. (Biases are alive and well in Canada.). There are many factors that can affect speech clarity: rate, expressiveness, or articulatory precision. Some languages have sounds and prosody (stress, rhythm and intonation) that are so different from Canadian English that it can help to work on these things: consonants and vowels, sentence stress, rhythm and intonation, or even voice quality.
With the goal being intelligibility (not nativeness), Mary will help you identify the specific features of your speech that are keeping you from delivering your message with confidence. One-on-one or small group sessions can provide you with the tools to speak more confidently.
