ARTA Method

ARTA's training in Accent Reduction is a multidimensional method that demands a multidimensional treatment approach. At its core, accent reduction is a coordination of speech motor control. But the coordination of speech behavior is more than just the accent; it also involves years of unlocking the barriers and avoidances caused by having an accent.

The primary goals of the ARTA's Method is: 

  • Learn new speaking skills that facilitate fluent speech

  • Reduce number and severity of accent barrier moments

  • Foster a proactive attitude toward improving speech production

  • Practice learned techniques in real-life situations

  • Achieve a good understanding and healthy acceptance of accents

  • Manage stress and barriers related to accent reduction and speaking

  • Increase self-confidence
