Is this you?

  • Do you get nervous when you need to speak English?
  • Do you feel that you’ve missed out on opportunities in your life because of the feeling that your English is not good enough?
  • Do you feel that once you have a deeper understanding of how English should sound like, you’ll feel more confident to use it? To achieve this level of confidence, do you need guidance, structure and feedback from someone who knows exactly what you’re going through and can coach you through the struggles and frustration?

If so, this program might be
just for you.

what is this program all about?

How would you like to walk into a job interview, an important meeting or even Starbucks, and say what you have to say without feeling self-conscious or frustrated.

Maybe you’re just tired of not fully understating your friends or colleagues? If someone has a bit of a dialect; Southern, Australian… forget about it.
Or watching your favorite TV series and feeling completely helpless if there are no subtitles.

Perhaps you’re OK with your English but you want it to shine when you speak. It’s not too much to ask.

You know how fluent and sharp you are in your first language
and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t feel as free when you speak English.

It IS Possible!


You are yet to make many breakthroughs in your life.
It’s all a matter of motivation and focus.

Are you ready to make a
breakthrough in your English?

If the answer is ‘yes’, I’d be honored to guide you through this journey.

Now, you might have already tried different training programs, learned from YouTube videos, or purchased online courses. You might have started a program but never had the patience or motivation to finish . Maybe you did complete some training programs and felt an improvement afterwards, but it didn’t stick. Maybe you’ve done so many things that have helped, but you’re still not able to see the bigger picture.
Here’s the thing: It is not that you just don’t get it.

There’s no such thing as not being talented in learning a language.

It’s just that you haven’t found the right program that will sweep you off your feet and make you fall in love with English.

I know
what it’s like.

I’m not a native speaker. I’m Israeli-born and Hebrew is my first language. When I moved to the U.S. at the age of 21, I had really good English but I still had an accent. At first, I didn’t want to be recognized as a foreigner. I changed my name to JULIA (sorry mom), and never mentioned my Israeli origin. But I still couldn’t avoid questions like: “Oh, where are you from?” Or, my favorite: “I love your accent! It’s so exotic!” Really? Cause I don’t.

When I enrolled in acting school, it was even worse. I couldn’t figure out the rhythm of the language which made me always sound so different than the others. I knew in my head how it should sound, I just wasn’t able to make it.

I kept thinking – if only I could say that in my first language, oh then I would show them how talented I am!

At some point, I realized that feeling sorry for myself is not going to advance me in any way. Also, I was lucky enough to come across the right coach who took me under her wing and guided me through my accent training. I still hear her voice in my head when I teach.

I felt the change
immediately

When I started the training I was shocked at how simple everything can be when it’s broken down to small pieces. Once I knew how to listen to English and what to focus on, I started to get better. Something that was once overwhelming and vague became feasible and easy to practice. It took a few more months of practice, but suddenly I stopped getting asked, “Where are you from?” on the streets. Instead I got: “Oh you’re not American? Wow, I couldn’t have guessed.” Snap!
Of course, once I felt more confident about how I sounded, my English improved. I would give myself the permission to speak more, the words were more accessible and I’d be stuck a lot less.

I can’t tell you the sense of accomplishment I felt.
I realized that if I set my mind into something, I could do anything.

I’m not saying all that to brag. I’m telling you all this because:

  1. I know what it’s like. I’ve been there. I understand exactly where you’re at and what you’re going through.
  2. I can show you exactly what it takes to get to the other side.

Bottom line is: I’ve done it. I’ve trained others to do it and I know with every part of my body and heart that if you want this bad enough,

you can do it, too.

    But don’t just take my word for it.

    Here’s what some of my students say about the course:


    Image

    Before taking the Accent Makeover online course, I'd never been empowered by anybody else in language improving in the outstanding way Hadar did and is still is doing. To be entirely transparent, I hesitated a great deal before signing in and was doubtful of whether it is going to work at all. Despite having deep language experience and advanced English grammar skills, I struggled with self-confidence in fluency and pronunciation. During the Accent Makeover class, something marvelous was happening. It changed my perspective on language learning thoroughly. It is based upon Hadar's excellent approach to coach enabling everyone to improve specific skills individually. Consequently, once and for all I changed my habits how to do the muscle work speaking English with proper rhythm, intonation and feeling the flow. Finally, I got it and put together the puzzle of the American accent. Hadar's great personality as a teacher, coach, and friend as well as her inspiring ability to capture people's imagination and to lead students to discover their hidden potential enriched my life and profession. Without the slightest whiff of exaggeration I highly recommend Hadar's online workshop!

    I think you are BRILLIANT! You are so knowledgeable and obviously experienced as a teacher, and your class is so freaking beyond anything I've seen. I have enjoyed quite a bit seeing you explain sounds, where they come from and the similarities or differences between a specific sound you teach and its equivalent in other languages, and BANG!!! you nail it from every single angle!!! Every single time!!! There is no freaking way a person could not understand what the sound is or how to imitate it. And then you are so charismatic, so humble, so easy to watch/listen to... I wish you were my EN as a 2nd language teacher back when I was 17… the class has served us as the perfect excuse to move a step forward in many positive directions, specifically regarding Chloe's personal growth - so it isn't always about "gaining confidence and clarity in English" ;P

    Zofia Machnowski

    Hadar is much more than a dialect coach. She will make you fall in love with English, and help you find the best and most unique way to express yourself.

    Even years after our practice sessions with Hadar are over, I can still say they were easily one of the best investments I’ve made in myself. I’m always aware of the little speech nuances now, noticing and practicing them like Hadar has taught me – I still keep improving! I used to feel very self-conscious about my dialect before. Even though it still isn’t perfect, the most important outcome is that I feel completely confident speaking English now.
    Tania Lanin
    Hadar’s online course is a joy and it was absolutely priceless!. Hadar's teaching approach is effective because she's able to detect your struggles and teach you how to fix them, in a way that it's easy to comprehend and stick with. She's accessible and caters to the needs of every student no matter what their levels are. I truly appreciate her kindness, hard work, professionalism and positive disposition. If you're committed to improve, Hadar will be truly committed to your improvement.

    Q&A


    The workshop has 8 modules that are released over the course of 10 weeks (beginning date October 29th, 2018 end date January 7th, 2019.)
    Every Monday at 9 am EST a new module will open (except for weeks 5 &10).

    You’ll be watching the content at your own pace and time, so you’re not obligated to show up at a certain hour.

    Every module has several lesson, and each lesson contains a video tutorial in which I explain the new sound/subject and afterwards we practice it together in words, phrases, sentences and texts as I walk you through the entire practice, pointing out what to look for, what pitfalls to avoid, where do people usually struggle and how to overcome it. In the videos I also guide and coach you so you’ll stay motivated and focused.

    After the program is over you’ll have lifetime access to the membership site to which new content is added every month.
