Poornima’s confident communicator course – http://bit.ly/2jd60Yk.
I LOVE HER ACCENT!! Do you? She helped me a lot when we were preparing for our Demo Day at 500 startup, this is the final version of my speech – https://youtu.be/dGfttuIsTq4
If you are a foreigner and English is now your native language, you are just like me. I still don’t feel super confident while speaking English, I still forget words and feel shy about my accent. When I am nervous I can make horrible mistakes. But it’s OK as long as other people understand me. This year I will be working more on my language as I want to sound more American.
Sometimes I feel I might not be able to get rid of my accent at all, but in the end it’s just a matter of how much effort I dedicate to it. Having a channel in English definitely helps.
If you have the same problem as I do I would suggest recording yourself and listening to your speech (really embarrassing, I know haha). But practice is the only way. And definitely try Poornima’s course, I was lucky to have her as my mentor.
Poornima helped our startup move to the USA, here is another video with her (we are talking about getting funded by American investors)- https://youtu.be/MRqZJTqkoIs
