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.”

Regional Dialect Coaching for the English Speaker

Whenever there are people living in the same geographic area, there is generally an accent or dialect associated with that particular town, city, or region. As a result, sometimes it can be easy for other people to tell where you are from based upon how you sound while it is difficult for you to hear your own accent.
