I believe you can reach your personal and professional communication goals. I am committed to you being able to read, write, email, and speak American English professionally.
You want your character, proficiency, and intelligence to be recognized at work, at school, in business. You need to communicate your ideas clearly and completely in an interview. You may think this requires foreign accent elimination, reduction, or correction.
It is not just what you say. It is how you say it. You will learn how to use your accent to be recognized as original as this international speaker of English,
S.K. Gupta, an aerospace and defense executive, who shared the following to diversityinc.com on February 8, 2012:
"I use my accent as an ice breaker. I make speeches and presentations all the time and I often start by saying, 'If some of you detect an accent, please remember that I didn't have one until I came to this country.'"
Who am I to say this? I am Alicia Delahunty and have been teaching American English as a Second Language since 1999.

More recently, I passed with distinctionWriting in the Sciences, a Stanford University Medical School Massive Open Online Course (November 2015).
