Focus on mastering the intonation patterns of American English. This class is the next step after Levels I and II. Now that you have completed the basic vowel and consonant programs, you will learn the musical aspects of speech, and the mechanics for how to signal stress and pitch. With Accent Reduction Level III, you will master stress and pitch patterns for words, sentences, and paragraphs. You will also practice body language and facial expressions that reinforce American intonation, and help add meaning and clarity to your speech. By the end of this session, you will have acquired the rules governing the production of an understandable communication.
