Dialect Adjustment

Professionals who have relocated to America often find themselves challenged at the workplace despite having conversed in English all their lives. One might often encounter the request – “Say that again?!”, leading to confusion and doubt.

So what’s wrong? Well, nothing… and something! While the education around the English language is primarily the same (barring the regional colloquialisms), the mouth movement of those brought up with an American English accent differs from those brought up in other cultures. This creates different phonetics and leads to lack of clear pronunciation from an American perspective.

This can, in turn, impact individuals from reaching their maximum potential, and achieving success.

Clear speech is essential for success in today’s global workforce.  Clear communication is invaluable.  Clients hire organizations whose employees communicate with clarity, confidence, and ease.

For both the speaker and the listener, the fear of misunderstandings can halt the flow of information and create serious barriers to productivity

Maybe your employees feel discouraged by the constant need to repeat themselves. Perhaps they avoid giving  input during team meetings because they anticipate being misunderstood.

At the Seattle Voice Institute, we teach can work directly with your employees to help them be comfortable in the workplace.
