Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
L2 Accent Reduction Centre is pleased to add to the team a speech-language pathologist with an extensive background in helping people communicate better. Patrick holds a masters degree in speech science from UBC, providing him with a solid understanding of sound production and comprehensive training in speech analysis. He is a member of the Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists and the College of Speech and Hearing Professionals of BC. Patrick Byrne brings to the Centre the expertise of a seasoned clinician who has worked with a diverse clientele in both public health and private practice. Previous to becoming an S-LP, Patrick worked as a certified TESL instructor, and has taught English both in Vancouver and Denmark.
Jennifer Madigan, Director of Learning at L2 Accent Reduction states, “We are very pleased to have Patrick as part of the team. It is rare to find a talented Speech Pathologist who has had training in Teaching English as a Second Language.”
L2 Accent Reduction Centre has long been the "go-to" resource centre for corporations who want to help individuals to speak clearer and relate better at work. Corporations who have extended medical services, can contact L2 Accent Reduction Centre.
An avid language learner, Patrick knows first hand the challenges of being understood in a second language. He has a BA in Russian and minor degree in German from the University of Oregon, his home state, and studied at the University of Salzburg, Austria. He also speaks Danish thanks to a mother from Copenhagen. Combine that with an English father and Irish grandparents, and it comes as no surprise that Patrick should have a keen interest in accents. With a US, UK, and Canadian passport, Patrick is truly a citizen of the world.
