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

Online Listening and Speaking Practice Lab

At ACE, we realize that instructors can have good days and bad days, stray from the curriculum, experience difficulty providing individual attention due to large class sizes, are often under strict time constraints and that most do not have standard North American accents themselves!

In response to these and other limitations of the traditional language-learning environment, our expert speech trainers are available and proud to offer pronunciation and cultural training in a web-based e-learning format designed to meet YOUR specific communication needs.

How Does It Work?

Clients will hear clear, professional quality audio and/or video using male or female English speakers in a variety of practice contexts.

On-Screen Digital Recorder

Linguistic experts agree that it is vital for English language learners to have ongoing auditory feedback in order to make progress. On every Practice Page, there is a digital recorder so clients can get the necessary immediate feedback as they listen to the native English model, preview their own recording and then compare the two.

Once satisfied with the audio/video recording, simply submit it to the trainer for timely, individualized feedback on how to modify your spoken English skills.
