I want to be clearly understood when I'm on stage and Paul's wonderful explanation in what makes certain sounds hard to understand for Americans has helped to, literally, clean up my act! I am Hungarian by birth but have lived in Austria, Germany, France and the United States and my accent is a mishmash of all those languages, which I call ‘international bizarre’. Being able to practice each sound with Paul Gruber's Pronunciation Workshop is a wonderful asset in preparing my speeches and getting my message across.
Although I don't want to get rid of my accent, usually considered "charming," as a member of Toastmasters International I do want to make sure that I can be understood. So thank you Paul and the Pronunciation Workshop team for making this possible!
