PROGRAMS' PRICING & FEES 4. REVIEWS AND FEEDBACK TO THE STUDENT ⠀ ⠀ ⠀American Accent Program was designed to help speakers of English as a Second or Other Languages learn the proper pronunciation of American English. There are THREE MODULES in this program: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🇺🇸 MODULE 1 🇺🇸 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ American Consonants: Sound-by-Sound ⠀ ⠀♻️ You CAN UNDERSTAND how to pronounce American Consonants correctly, distinguishing the differences between your native sounds and American consonants like [T] & [D] or sound interactions [TR] & [WR]; learn about Elision, Reductions, Assimilations, and much more. ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN CREATE a habitual manner of speaking each American Consonant by practicing with "phonetic exercises." you will be training at the beginning, middle, and end of words). ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN PRACTICE speaking American in "sentences practice" & "paragraphs practice." This training will help you find your mistakes and analyze how to speak English correctly. ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN ORGANIZE all American Consonants in your mind, and improve pronunciation after a couple of sessions! ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN WORK in your private Learning Management System with audio and video recordings and 2D Sound Motion Animations for each American sound. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🇺🇸 MODULE 2 🇺🇸 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ American Vowels: Sound-by-Sound ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN RECOGNIZE the most confusing American vowels, like in these words [CALLER] - [COLOR] - [COLLAR] or [SIT] - [SET] - [SAD] and more. 2D Sound Motion technology will show you each American sound in the amination. ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN CREATE a habitual manner of speaking the American Vowels naturally, practicing with "phonetic exercises." You will be training at the beginning, middle, and end of words). ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN PRACTICE your American speaking in "sentences practice" & "paragraphs practice" that help you TRAIN American Vowels more effectively. ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN ORGANIZE all American Vowels in your mind, learn to hear your mistakes, analyze your speech, and constantly see your learning progress from session to session! ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN WORK in your private Learning Management System with audio and video recordings and 2D Sound Motion Animations for each American sound. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🇺🇸 MODULE 3 🇺🇸 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ American Emphasis & Intonation ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN USE your voice tone to practice the American intonation, rhythm, and stress. Learn about Low Falling Tone, Low Rising Tone, Fall-Rise Tone, etc. ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN LEARN about the American Emphasis: focusing on the sentence's CONTENT, STRUCTURE, FOCUS WORDS, word stress, and sentence stress. ⠀ ⠀ ♻️ You CAN PRACTICE your AIntonationntonatio in "Intonation exercises" & "storytelling" that help you open your mind to speak Confidently! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀I have worked with many Universities, schools, and corporations, observing many classes that teach pronunciation worldwide. Well, it is not a secret that when students start learning English, they pay too much attention to Grammar and Vocabulary instead of Pronunciation. The students may know grammar and vocabulary very well, but when it comes to speaking English, they start using sounds of the native language to speak English. This sound replacement creates an accent and problems with fluency. I developed a concept that helps you learn faster and better. We will address facial muscle training and proper explanation using ADVANCED 2D SOUND MOTION TECHNOLOGY. We will also work on your mindset toward learning a new sound implementation because many sounds in American English do not exist in your native language, which requires an efficacious approach to create those in your way. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀A confluence of these techniques will help you UNDERSTAND American Phonetics effortlessly. You will compare the difference between your native language pronunciation and the American one, allowing you to learn the American sound system quickly and more EFFECTIVELY. Most teachers providing pronunciation classes do not know these "language techniques"; they just simply "give a lecture" or ask you to repeat! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ COURSE PHILOSOPHY 🔶 INDIVIDUAL APPROACH 🔶 When learning an American accent with a professional linguist, it is essential to understand that this work is individual and tailors the learning process towards your needs, goals, and preferences, improving your American pronunciation and fluency in speaking English. Individual approach, solid partnership relationship, and careful guidance throughout your American Accent Training are essential and centered in my teaching philosophy. 🔶 2D SOUND MOTION TECHNOLOGY🔶 2D Sound Motion Technology for teaching American sounds and accent: A technology that uses two-dimensional visual and auditory feedback to help learners improve their pronunciation and fluency in American English. This technology helps learners understand the sound system of American English and how to produce the sounds correctly.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 🔶 INTELLECTUAL INTERACTION🔶 A process of exchanging ideas and information between the professor and a student while mastering the American Accent during Speech Therapy. This process involves various educational and psychological approaches that I will be applying to enhance your American Sounds and Intonation learning and see how all these features relate to the human mind and behavior, implementing them into your daily communication in your English speaking. PROGRAM PRICE AND FEES ❇️ Individual Learning: One-on-One classes - $150/hour BENEFITS: 2D Sound Motion Technology+ Structured Program with Phonetic exercises, practice phrases, Sentence practice, and Paragraph Practice (available in the classroom only in One-on-One Learning) I use 2D video sound technology to educate my students. 2D Sound Motion Technology for teaching American sounds and accent: A technology that uses two-dimensional visual and auditory feedback to help learners improve their pronunciation and fluency in American English.

I’ve embarked on a pronunciation journey, having tried three sessions with three different pros! While two of them were complimentary, I willingly invested in Alex’s expertise. And let me tell you, the distinction and professionalism I’ve received are palpable! From the outset, I poured out my concerns—the hurdles I faced in English speaking. My frustrations, the way people perceived my speech—it all spilled out. But here’s the magic: Alex is an extraordinary listener! His profile mirrors precisely what it promises. With grace and professionalism, he addressed my fears and insecurities, offering practical solutions to overcome them. And then he introduced American Accent Training. Alex shared the secrets to mastering English fluency. I consider myself an advanced English speaker, yet my pronunciation sometimes lets me down. In our inaugural session, we tailored a program, set clear goals, and Alex’s knack for mind-focused success shone through. I’m gearing up for 22 intensive sessions, brimming with practice—a pathway to enhance my speaking. Next week can’t arrive soon enough! My resounding recommendation: If you seek true professionalism, hire Alex. He’s the key to unlocking your linguistic potential!

"I am thrilled to work with Alex! He is an amazing individual and a true professional who excels at assisting non-native English speakers. Alex has helped me overcome various challenges, such as understanding how to pronounce sounds correctly and discerning these sounds in movies or conversations with my co-workers. I encountered significant difficulties with American sounds like “cAller” vs. “cOllar” vs. “cOlor,” as well as “Awful” vs. “Obvious” vs. “Other.” Initially, these sounds all seemed identical to me. Consequently, I struggled to comprehend people, and they, in turn, had difficulty understanding me because my pronunciation resembled that of Spanish. As a professional, I aspire to be perceived as an educated individual. Alex has been instrumental in shaping my world, and I cannot thank him enough for his talent and professionalism in educating me effectively. My understanding of how to produce these sounds has improved significantly as well as my speech and listening comprehension. Alex genuinely cares about his clients and consistently delivers the best quality. His program is nothing short of miraculous! He has developed 2D sound motion technology that assists speakers in understanding how to move their speech organs correctly. The simulator works so effectively that I now pronounce these sounds exactly like an American accent! (See the image below.) I wholeheartedly recommend Alex’s American accent reduction program to anyone who wants to speak confidently and eloquently!"

Alex, the maestro of English Grammar, has made an unforgettable impact on my language journey. With precision, Alex has clarified the Present Simple and Past Simple tenses. Trust me, Alex’s teaching prowess goes beyond mere instruction—it’s an art. Consider this: “I go to New York City tomorrow” versus “I will go to New York City tomorrow.” The difference between future and present is just a thread in the rich tapestry woven by Alex. Beneath the surface, a treasure trove of linguistic gems awaits discovery! Love that sentence! And yeah, the Present Perfect and Past Simple were confusing for me and I did not ever use Present Perfect! Alex made it so clear and simple to understand, so even my husband learned a lot! That's funny! Now my English speaking flows effortlessly, and clarity bloomed. So, guys, seek out Alex’s classes. I highly recommend his Advanced English Grammar Program for everyone who wants to speak English confidently! Dive into grammar’s currents—beyond textbooks—Alex will be your the best option!
