Client Testimonials

 

“I have been searching for a highly proficient accent coach or institution. There are many online courses but I was not sure the courses until I found the Accent & Corporate English Training Classes, offered by Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center. Carrie is an excellent Speech trainer and she customized the communication training course. It was extremely well designed. I really enjoyed this Accent and Communication training and it has given me a new confidence in dealing with my work situation and my personal confidence. All things about the course were excellent and extremely helpful. I enjoyed it very much."

“The instructor is very professional and knowledgeable. The program is organized in a very effective way. It’s very helpful when the professional points out the mistakes you didn’t realize before.”

“I can't tell you how wonderful these last past nine weeks have been. Although it was only nine hours of training, the contribution of your time and effort has been life-changing. Being a minister in a doctoral program for theology, with little formal training at the art of speaking, I must say I have benefited tremendously from your feedback. I think this is a part of your life calling you are a natural at proliferating as well as modifying one's natural abilities. You have made my day, and you are an exceptional person!”
All the best,
Rev. Dave

“I always have the problem to pronounce ‘th’ sound. I knew the differences between the voiced and voiceless ‘th’, but I could not pronounce them correctly. The instructor introduced a website to help us distinguish different sounds. I think it is very helpful. The instructor even asked me to look at the mirror when I said the words. She tried many ways to teach and improve our pronunciation. Very good program and very good instructor.”

How Does the ACE Approach Work?

Achieving Communication Excellence

Accent Modification for the Educator

Did You Know?

  • Your ability to communicate effectively directly affects your ability to transfer knowledge to your students.
  • Ineffective communication skills will cause students to view and rate you poorly.
  • Poor communication skills negatively impact your interactions with other faculty members and administrative staff.
  • English fluency and clear communication are often the biggest obstacles for career advancement.
  • The way you speak directly impacts your reputation and what people think of you. Speaking clearly and confidently helps them appreciate you and your ideas.

In the competitive professional workplace, people judge us not only by WHAT we say, but HOW we say it.

As the North American workplace becomes more diverse, employers are discovering that they must provide their multicultural employees new support services to ensure their success.

Our program will help you achieve solid results.

The ACE Approach:

Using academically- oriented assessment and training materials, we will guide you through the necessary steps to successfully integrate into the North American academic system. We do not believe in a “one size fits all’ approach. Programs are designed to build on each professional’s present level of linguistic and cultural competency. 

Our customized programs offer self-paced practice opportunities, expert feedback, real-world application, personalized scheduling, continuous support, and a combination of auditory, visual and kinesthetic instruction and practice techniques necessary to achieve rapid and measureable long-term results.

Communication Skills Training includes:

Spoken English Skills (pronunciation, presentation skills, teaching skills, instructor-student interactions, collaboration, daily conversation)

Listening Skills (formal presentations and everyday conversations in the academic setting)

Pragmatic Language Skills (using voice to project with clarity and confidence, use and interpretation of verbal and non-verbal cues, strategies to repair communication breakdown, use and understanding of common academic abbreviations and idioms specific to the subject matter that you teach)

We understand that being a Professional Educator means that you are busy.
