Accent modification

There are individuals who have a certain ease in adopting different accents. It can happen that while traveling and spending time in a place where people speak in a distinctive manner, we end up unconsciously making an accent modification, sometimes even with a similar intonation.

On the other hand, there are people who, for work-related reasons (in most cases), wish to refine their pronunciation in Spanish to enhance their oral communication. If this is your case, and you have ever considered working on this aspect, I can assure you that it is possible with the assistance of a speech therapist experienced in this field.

What will the accent modification work involve?

Firstly, we will conduct a phonetic assessment. We will delve into the pronunciation of those Spanish phonemes that are considered necessary to refine, and we will also take into account other aspects such as tone, melody, rhythm, and speaking speed. It’s evident that each person has their own unique way of speaking, and that’s what partly makes us distinct.

Of course, if you live in the country or region where the language you want to refine is spoken, it will help adapt your accent. If that’s not the case, watching movies or series in Spanish or engaging in conversations with Spanish-speaking individuals will also be helpful in capturing the nuances of spoken language in this tongue.
