Is This You?

  • English is your native language
  • You are self-conscious about your speech in IRL or Zoom meetings
  • Your major concern is to ‘soften’ overall accent into a more neutral version of what it is
  • Speech clarity is of no particular concern but any improvement is welcome
  • You want a professional tutor and a course you can custom-design for your own speech pattern

If this is you, a Time-Online course for accent change is the answer. Your course will include study on speech clarity as well.

If your only goal is to speak more clearly,
go to Modern Elocution.

A Flexible Course To
Suit Your Needs

Forget general courses that give all students the same speech sounds to study. Every accent has a different set of problem sounds. Why waste time studying sounds you can already make?

With Time-Online, you may custom-design a course for your own individual accent if you wish. Or, decide to keep it simple.

Choose the method that suits you best:

  1. Keep it simple with a Typical Error List
    • Select from over 40 accents and clarity concerns
  2. Identify your own personal errors with the short Screening Test
    • tailor your course to study the exact sounds YOU need
  3. Pick your study sounds at random
    • perfect if you already know the sounds you wish to study

You’ll be guided every step of the way. The masterclass videos and audio exercises will focus on the sounds you need to study.
