This program is spread over a month during which your accent will go through various stages of development. The first stage is called ‘accent neutralization’ following which it is ‘accent enhancement’. The key focus at PACE™ is to ‘teach’ you a new accent and not to train you to fake one – which, unfortunately, is what all the other institutes are doing. We have international trainers at PACE™ who deliver the voice and accent sessions. These are the same trainers who deliver sessions at corporate companies as well so you will be learning from the best of the best.
What Is Accent?
Accent is a combination of three main components: intonation (speech music), liaisons (word connections), and pronunciation (the spoken sounds of vowels, consonants, and combinations). As you go along, you’ll notice that you’re being asked to look at accent in a different way. You’ll also realize that the grammar you studied before and this accent you’re studying now are completely different.
Part of the difference is that grammar and vocabulary are systematic and structured— the letter of the language. Accent, on the other hand, is free form, intuitive, and creative— more the spirit of the language. So, thinking of music, feeling, and flow, let your mouth relax into the American accent.
“Which Accent Is Correct?”
American Accent Training was created to help people “sound American” for lectures, interviews, teaching, business situations, and general daily communication. Although America has many regional pronunciation differences, the accent you will learn is that of standard American English as spoken and understood by the majority of educated native speakers in the United States. Don’t worry that you will sound slangy or too casual because you most definitely won’t. This is the way a professor lectures to a class, the way a national newscaster broadcasts, the way that is most comfortable and familiar to the majority of native speakers.
Can I Learn a New Accent?
Can a person actually learn a new accent? Many people feel that after a certain age, it’s just not possible. Can classical musicians play jazz? If they practice, of course they can! For your American accent, it’s just a matter of learning and practicing techniques PACE will teach you.
P.A.C.E Voice & Accent Training Program
The P.A.C.E™ US Voice & Accent (Online/Classroom) training program focusses on a wide array of skills required to excel in the Indian BPO environment and IT job processes. The BPO industry contributes significantly to the Indian employment scenario by opening up wonderful job opportunities for Indian youth. With a significant growth of the BPO sector in India over the years, there has been a steep rise in demand for well-trained candidates.
For example, for every 100 candidates carefully selected for BPO job interviews, there is a ‘hit-rate’ of only 7-10 candidates which means about 90% of all interviewed candidates have to walk home including the ‘non-fatal’ ‘near-hires’. This means even if you are ‘almost’ there, you are rejected. At P.A.C.E™, we make it easier by accentuating the recruitment process for both, the aspiring candidates and the interested companies, by stepping in to facilitate the fundamentally important foundation training stage.
With P.A.C.E™ Voice & Accent (Online/Classroom) training, you amplify your chances to get a job. P.A.C.E™ Voice and Accent Training (Online/Offline) covers the following areas which have been earmarked as the most important for voice processes:
- Voice and Accent training
