About accent training
Everyone has an accent. This particular way of speaking often allows a listener to identify where the speaker may be from. While diverse accents are a wonderful aspect of spoken English, sometimes an accent can make it difficult for individuals from one country or region to fully understand people from another. The Dalhousie Accent Clinic provides services to enable you to recognize and produce the sounds and speech patterns of North American English so that you may more easily communicate with other individuals from this region.
