Are you looking to increase confidence in your use of American English? The University Center for Language and Literacy (UCLL) at U-M offers a special workshop designed for non-native English speakers who want to expand their communication skills. Our program provides the perfect environment for you to reach your personal goals and we’re registering now!

Our certified Speech and Language Pathologists use techniques technically known as accent reduction to help non-native speakers feel more at home in their communications — whether that’s giving a presentation or taking notes in a class with a native speaker with a fast cadence. The goal of the program is certainly not to eliminate the accents of our clients, but to enhance communication skills for greater confidence in all settings. Participants will set their own individual objectives at the start of the workshop and will work to reach those goals using a combination of small group activities and one-on-one interaction, facilitated by a Speech and Language Pathologist.

The workshop will run from June 6 to August 15, 2019. Participants will meet weekly on Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 p.m. The program cost is $275.00, plus the purchase of Mastering the American Accent by Lisa Mojsin.
