“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

Regional Dialect Coaching for the English Speaker

Has anyone ever told you that YOU have an accent?  What they may be telling you is that you are speaking with a 'regional dialect'.

Whenever there are people living in the same geographic area, there is generally a dialect associated with that particular location. 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 speech patterns.

Regional dialects can be distracting in a professional environment and can cause problems during a variety of  speaking events such as presentations, interviews, when representing the image of your company using the telephone, giving a speech or when delivering a sales pitch. 

Our training helps native English speakers become more articulate, persuasive and confident in their speech.

How exactly ‘Standard North American English’ is defined is highly debatable, however there are some basic sounds that are generally accepted. A few small changes can go a long way towards modifying your delivery and expand your chances of getting jobs in a wider market and making yourself more easily understood in your day- to- day communication.

Our training will allow people to focus on WHAT you are saying rather than HOW you are saying it.

Available on-site at one of our conveniently located offices, your place of work, or online.

Training programs typically include 12-15 hours of instruction.
