“As a French engineer having immigrated to the US, I needed some necessary accent modification lessons. I was extremely lucky to find Dalit. She has great interpersonal skills and is passionate about what she’s doing, accent modification. She taught me a ton on intonation, vowels, etc. to speak more like an American. Now, if someone still does not understand me, which is much more rare, I know exactly why and how I can make myself understood better. I even managed to do the dreaded “R” properly. I recommend Dalit to anyone who wants to work on their accent, without hesitation! Thanks again, Dalit.” -X. P., Engineer
