Many people are surprised to learn that I run a business dedicated to Accent Modification. They’re even more surprised at the number of people who sign up for a service they didn’t even know existed. Here are some insights into the demographics of individuals I typically work with:
- Engineers (mechanical/electric etc)
- IT professionals
- Computer programmers
- Chinese (typically Mandarin but also Cantonese)
- Indian languages (Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu)
- African Languages (Ibo, Amharic, Yoruba)
Approximately 30-40% of my clients represent other languages including Spanish, Tagalog, Arabic, Russian, Portuguese and others. In the next article we’ll discuss the reasons people sign up for accent reduction.
