Success Stories

Howard, a NYC attorney contacted a Corporate Speech Pathology Trainer to develop a stronger, more dynamic speaking voice as well as to develop overall confidence in business and social communication settings. He wanted to improve his vocal quality and increase his self confidence in business situations. Howard contacted his trainer to inform her that he was offered the job!

Mauro is an Engineer working at a Fortune 100 company. He is from Italy originally, and now works in the USA. Mauro's position demands that he travel internationally and also conduct business on the telephone. He found that many people, especially those who are not native English speakers, could not always understand him easily. He would have the 'feeling' that people did not understand him and also sometimes they would ask for him to repeat what he had said.

Mauro worked with a Corporate Speech Pathologist to modify his accent. He worked with her for a total of 13 lessons, which included 1-on-1 practice sessions and homework. At the beginning of the sessions, his Trainer evaluated his intonation and pronunciation so they could focus their work on specific areas.

Mauro was recorded speaking English both before and after his training and is very pleased with the results. His wife and co-workers notice the difference, too.

Testimonials

  • "As a native speaker, I had no idea that I was teaching my students words with a Kansas accent. Nor was I aware of how important intonation is. I have acquired advanced knowledge about sounds and structure of the English language that I did not learn in high school, or college, or in my 20 years of teaching"
    ~ Valerie Y., – ESOL Teacher, L1- English Speaker
  • "American Accents Class has been a wonderful experience for me. I am finding that people seem to understand me better since I have learned to slow down my rate of speech and use correct intonation. I would recommend this class for any non-native speaker who needs individual help in learning more about the English language and in making themselves more easily understood."
    ~ Nidia A., – ESOL Teacher, L1 Spanish Speaker
  • "I took American Accents 1,2,3 in the hope that I might learn a little more about phonics to teach my ESOL students. I got that and much more. As a native speaker, I had no idea that I was teaching my students words with a Kansas accent. Nor was I aware of how important intonation is. I have acquired advanced knowledge about sounds and structure of the English language that I did not learn in high school, or college, or in my 20 years of teaching. Thanks! The class was fabulous, fun, and informative!"

    ~ Nidia A., – ESOL Teacher, L1 Spanish Speaker
  • "I learned a lot in just 5 sessions. The things I came to know had a huge impact on my speaking. My Corporate Speech Trainer helped me learn that a lot of small but powerful mistakes can change the meaning of the words or make them difficult to understand, like the sounds: “th,” “v”, “r.” She also taught me to project my voice better, which is really helpful. I am very thankful to my speech trainer for her dedication to all that she taught me. She is a very experienced and wonderful teacher."
    ~ Nancy P., L1 - Hindi Speaker
  • "I completed three introductory (group) courses of American Accent Essentials consisting of cadence, vowels and consonants classes. I highly recommend it to anybody who already learned English as a second language and wants to learn correct pronunciation of English. I will use the correct pronunciation I learned when performing my duties as Instructor and Examiner for the American FAA and European JAA, when performing my duties in classrooms, flight simulators and business jet aircrafts."
    ~ Ceferino G., L1 - Spanish Speaker
