Eastern Europe Accent & Dialect Class with Coach, Paula Vanlandingham

Have you turned down an audition or not submitted for a role because you didn’t feel confident with the accent it required?

Let’s fix that ASAP!

I want you to book work and be able to embrace each and every opportunity that comes your way.

Dialect coach, Paula Vanlandingham, teaches accent, dialect and language training for actors in film, television, gaming, and digital media. Paula teaches over 50 world accents and regional dialects. She also speaks 5 languages!

This month’s accent focus is Eastern Europe. This region is populated by Slavic languages like Polish, Ukrainian, Yiddish, Serbo-Croatian, Bosnian, Czech, Russian and more.
These languages have several iconic features when filtering into spoken English for actors playing roles set in this region.
Always in high demand for historical pieces as well as events unfolding in the present day.
Industry auditions are in heavy rotation right now for these accents.
No prior accent or language training or knowledge is necessary; beginners welcome.
We will cover the essential sound sets in the first class, then come back for the second session to put what you’ve learned into practice with real scenes (readings, not memorized).  

Paula studied acting at the University of Missouri, then at the Lee Strasberg Institute of New York.

She was trained in language acquisition methods by the Berlitz Institute in Rockefeller Center and has a Master’s degree in linguistic anthropology.

Paula teaches 50 accents and speaks Spanish, German, Bosnian, Russian, French (plus a little Italian, Japanese and Arabic).

Studio membership includes access to a monthly dialect and accent classes for actors!
