ACCENT REDUCTION BASICS

introducing

I’m giving you the step-by-step system I use to coach my 1:1 clients in a bite sized modular course that will teach you the basics to reduce your foreign accent on your own, in your own time, without the commitment to private mentorship.

 I’ve taken everything I learned from reducing my foreign  accent on my own to now working in the film industry as  a dialect coach into a 5-module online course to locate,  adapt, train, change, and leverage your accent.

It’s not when you learn the right patterns and processes around foreign accent reduction.

Accent Reduction Basics is a straightforward and effective online course that will reshape your progress with pronunciation. This 5-step program gives you the necessary tools and teach you how to locate, adapt, train, change, and leverage your accent. 

Like so many of us non-native English speakers, I've struggled with my foreign accent. Because we weren't taught how to reduce our foreign accents in school, I didn't even know where to begin. At times it felt like I would be stuck with my foreign accent forever.

hi, I'm
Ronja Hübscher.

As I was learning English, people would say to me ...

... you'll always have a foreign accent

... you'll never stand a chance against native speakers

... your foreign accent is a disadvantage on the job market

... you won't ever be successful in a language that isn't your own

... forget about your dreams and stick to what you know

There was a time when I would let other people's limitations get to me and keep me off my track. I even started studying law because I believed what people around me had told me: that I could never become a voice over artist nor interpreter as a non-native English speaker.

That little voice inside me did not keep quiet, however. I changed my field of studies against societal expectations, in hopes it would bring me closer to my dreams. It did, just not the way I expected it to. Despite its linguistic nature, my English Literature & Linguistics major did not entail anything on pronunciation other than the theoretical study of phonetics and phonology. In terms of my foreign accent, I was still on my own.

Not knowing if it would ever truly work, I changed my pronunciation whenever I would hear a native English speaker say a word differently. It took me YEARS to get to a point where I would feel comfortable, let alone confident with my accent. But I did it. I had even declined an offer to work as an interpreter for one of the companies I was employed at during my undergrad - I had other plans for myself.

Within ten years, I went from people telling me I would always sound like a non-native English speaker to people not believing me I am one.

Today, I've created a course I wish existed back when was desperately trying to reduce my foreign accent. My Accent Reduction Basics course shows you the most common accent features so many of us non-native English speakers pronounce differently, and teaches you how to train your accent. I've taken the guesswork out of your journey so it doesn't take you as long as it did me to reduce your foreign accent too.

If I can do it, so can you. Don't let other people tell you it isn't possible - I'm here to tell you it is. Wanna join me in proving them wrong?

here's a sneak peek...

WHY ACCENTS MATTER

While no accent is inherently better than another, foreign accents can make us feel self-conscious when they're the reason people tend to not understand or misunderstand us altogether. This module sheds light on subliminal accent biases and teaches why accents are important.

DEFINE YOUR ACCENTS

Discover what makes up your current accent and redefine how you speak. This module will show you how to acquire the accent of your dreams by defining your source and target accents. You'll learn how an accent is not an enemy but a way of creating choices.

HOW ACCENTS WORK

Master how to learn an accent, train your articulators and use everyday tools and routines to your advantage. This module teaches you how to actually go about learning an accent so what you learn doesn't vanish into thin air but has a lasting impact instead.

TARGET ACCENT FEATURES

Know which sounds to work on to have a native English pronunciation. This core module reveals the top 5 native English accent features that non-native English speakers struggle with the most. It teaches you how to reduce the most common foreign accent features.

TARGET ACCENT PROSODY

Enhance your speech with native English prosody. This module focuses on developing speaking habits beyond pronunciation, such as intonation and speaking rhythm. It further shows you how to avoid foreign hesitation markers and which filler words to use instead.

  • Is your coaching on-site or online?
    My coaching for private clients is online via Zoom. If you want to book me for an in-person workshop, please reach out to me via the contact page.
  • Do you also provide your services in German?
    Ja - und au uf Schwiizerdütsch ;-)
  • Do you teach English language skills like grammar or writing?
    No. My focus is on pronunciation, speaking and the voice. However, my friend Nadia from the London Language Box offers English lessons and even exam preparation classes! Check out her services here: https://www.londonlanguagebox.com/our-services
  • Do I need to 'neutralize' my foreign accent first to then learn another one?
    No, you don't need to reduce your foreign accent first to learn how to speak in another accent. If, for example, you have a Slavic accent and would like to learn how to speak like Matthew McConaughey, you don't need to acquire a General American accent first to then learn how to speak in a Southern US accent. Adding another accent to your skillset and reducing your foreign accent features go hand in hand. Remember, there is no such thing as a neutral accent; you switch from one accent to another without having to learn a third.

Here’s the best bit: you are 100% safe to try this course out and see if it’s for you. Enroll today, start going through the course as soon as it launches, and watch how your mindset and relationship with your accent shifts! When it does, and you start seeing a change in your pronunciation, you’ll be so happy and relieved to have finally found something that works for you – and I think that’s exactly what’s gonna happen. I do recommend you stay with it at least a month to get the most out of Accent Reduction Basics and to see results from practicing consistently.

If within 30 DAYS of purchase, i.e. the course launch, for some reason your thoughts, mindset, perspective, and accent don’t begin to shift, I will refund 100% of your investment and you’ll simply be removed from the course. We’ll still be friends. But I'm putting my money where my mouth is! You can read the full refund policy here.

Every module has lessons and exercises that are tangible and will set your articulators up for life. Most of this isn't taught in English language classes, and it's why you've never had an unfair advantage. Until now.
