"I was fortunate to find AccentAccurate to tackle my non-native Hebrew accent. Naomi Shiloh applies her professional Speech and Language training to the task of accent repair and is a pioneer in the Hebrew accent arena. She has a profound understanding of the various components that comprise what we laypeople refer to as "accent" which is much more than simply pronouncing vowels and consonants in the correct way. I find her broad analysis on the many components of my fluent Hebrew to be very valuable; we work on cadence and intonation as well as diction and pronunciation. Naomi's background growing up truly bilingual from the earliest age provides her with a superior ear for accents and errors. If you are serious about improving your Hebrew accent, I cannot recommend Ms. Shiloh's company highly enough."

Why is speaking Hebrew with an Israeli Accent important?
Most olim want to acquire an Israeli accent for the following reasons:
When in Israel, you want to sound Israeli!
Israelis can be quite judgmental when an Oleh tries to speak to them in accented Hebrew. Learning the Israeli pronunciation, intonation/stress patterns, and cadence can help you sound and come across as more confident and more Israeli.
Improve your Negotiation Skills!
In situations in which pricing is negotiable (e.g., at the market), an American accent can be a disadvantage in the bargaining process. Israelis tend to assume that “Americans” are both wealthier and less assertive compared with Israelis. No one wants to be a “fryer” in Israel!
