British Accent Coaching "Luxury or Necessity"

Posted on Monday, February 19, 2018 by Positivevoice

If you were to call me saying that they would like to develop a British accent in order to boost your confidence when speaking in English. I would ask you two questions :

1.       Would you feel more confident if you spoke with a British accent ?

2.       If you felt more confident, would you care about your accent ?

The solution would vary depending on your answer: British accent coaching or Confidence coaching.

I once met an entrepreneur who wanted to change his accent and then he became really successful and decided he didn’t care anymore. In fact, he made his accent one of his greatest assets by serving fellow migrant entrepreneurs. Now his accent has become an integral part of his brand.

Most of my clients who follow British accent coaching just want to be understood. They are fed up with being asked to repeat themselves and just want people to focus on what they’re saying rather than how they sound when they put their point across. For some, however, it is about mastering the language and they do it purely for pleasure just as you might decide to learn how to paint or play the guitar; purely for the joy of it.

I spend most of my time in France, but because i work for myself in my native language, i’m not yet motivated enough to perfect my French accent. I would love to, but as it’s a luxury, i haven’t yet made them time to do it.

How about you ? Is it a luxury or a necessity ?

If it is more of a luxury, you can start slowly by following my one minute posts on Instagram. Here is my latest Instagram video; it only lasts a minute and i'm sure you can find that much time even if it is a luxury indulgence :)
