Everybody speaks English these days. Whether we like it or not, our ability to fluently speak English makes a big difference in the way we are perceived as a competent international professional. Monster.com, one of the largest job search websites in the world, says the following about our accent in an article called "Do you sound right for the job?" “ A UNT study showed "an incredibly strong statistical correlation between judging someone as cultured, intelligent, competent, etc., and placing them into prestigious jobs," based on the lack of a readily identified accent.” No matter how politically correct society gets, it’s almost impossible not to let an accent trigger an emotional response in us, including hiring managers.
Many of us have had personal experience in this regard, and have been working for years to “speak like an American” or “speak like a Brit”. Traditional English lessons have not had much success in the area of helping adopt an accent perfectly, and help it to stick.
ORCA Method™ will make the difference. ORCA method™ was developed to help the speaker identify and self-correct after a series of training sessions with an ORCA™ certified trainer. The whole process is easy to understand and effective because your mind and senses work together to adopt the correct accent.
Now the book, The ORCA Method is available on amazon, and the ORCA Method™ website will help you step by step to achieve the accent that you want.
