Accent Modification for Parents of School-Aged Children
Charlotte, North Carolina is a city with a large population of transplants. People come here from all over the world for great jobs, a fabulous city, and a beautiful climate. Whether you’re new to Charlotte or have been here for years, you may find your accent is disrupting your ability to communicate effectively with your child’s school, friend’s parents, and your friends.
Improve Communication with your Child’s School
If you are you nervous about interacting with your child’s teacher or principal due to your strong accent, accent modification might be for you. You’ll gain clear communication for helping teachers and principals understand what you want for your child so they can thrive academically, socially, and behaviorally. You can also avoid the potential annoyance or embarrassment of being asked to repeat yourself or having your child communicate to a teacher for you.
Improve Your Social Life
Accent reduction is not just about your children, it can be for you too! Is your accent disrupting your ability to make friends with other parents, co-workers, or neighbors? Unfortunately, accents can get in the way of receiving social invitations due to the challenging communication. While your child may get invited to the birthday party, you might leave the party without having had meaningful conversations or connections with other parents. Accent modification lessons can make communication with other families clearer to have a better social life, engage in the community more, and lay down some roots. You’ll be asked to repeat yourself less, and other parents will feel perfectly comfortable getting to know you.
