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."

“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.”

Student benefits of learning outside the typical ESL language classroom:

In a typical English as a Second Language classroom, teachers work with a group of students as a whole. As a result, the individual often has specific first language concerns or an individualized learning style that may never get addressed. The emphasis is often on graded assignments and tests rather than personal progress. By contrast, an accent coach is not trying to teach materials or theory for a grade, but rather to assist the student in making progressDo not spend time studying topics that do not apply to you!

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.

The best results are achieved when clients are highly motivated and practice frequently.

Accent Modification classes are quite affordable and can be adjusted to your specific needs. Compare the cost and benefits with college courses and you will see that the expenses are very minimal for the advantage of having personalized instruction while achieving rapid and measurable results.

Invest in yourself!
