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.”

How Does the ACE Approach Work?

Achieving Communication Excellence

Custom Curriculum

All of our programs boast the following features:

Pre-Training Assessment and Questionnaire

We administer an informal questionnaire followed by an in-depth diagnostic assessment of your spoken English skills and your ability to understand the English language occurring around you.  Weaknesses identified using these two measures will drive curriculum planning for the individual client.

Custom Curriculum Development

We design your lessons and practice materials around your particular English language goals based on your interest and ability levels. We teach participants to be successful at the conversational level in a culturally acceptable way.

Program Delivery Options

Training may be conducted at your site, at any of our conveniently located sites, or may be carried out online.

Post-Training Assessment

Included in your training, is a post-assessment of your accented English.  This allows us to assess the percentage of improvement you have made since the onset of your training.  We then provide you or your company with a written report of these findings.

Highly Qualified Trainers

Our trainers are all certified Speech-Language Pathologists and/or Certified Accent Modification Specialists.  They are experts in the areas of listening and providing individualized feedback to promote carry-over of skills learned into everyday speaking situations.
