Evaluation and Sessions

Discovery Call and Accent Evaluation

The first step is to schedule a 15-minute Zoom discovery call. During the call, we’ll discuss your background and goals, describe the way our program works, and help you schedule a speech and accent evaluation.

After that, you’ll meet with one of our instructors for a one-to-one accent evaluation at no charge. This is a comprehension speech evaluation where you will learn in detail about all your speech characteristics and patterns, including:

  • American English pronunciation and accent reduction trainingPronunciation
  • Intonation, stress, rhythm
  • Accent physicality and oral posture

You may also have questions about:

  • Help with presentations
  • Social speech (e.g. “small talk”)
  • Non-verbal communication
  • Online communication skills
  • Grammar/vocabulary/writing

The evaluation takes only about an hour of your time, but you will come away knowing specifically what changes you need to make in your speech – and how we can help.

Private Accent Reduction Sessions

During the evaluation, you’ll receive a customized accent reduction training plan. Most of our students take private or semi-private classes 1-2x weekly. Each session is carefully planned to address your specific needs, with home study materials tailored just for you. In fact, you’ll have lifetime access to our library of sound files and texts to help you maintain your new speaking skills.

Our approach is designed to help you in everyday life—whether you’re seeking a job promotion, preparing for a presentation, or just spending an afternoon with new friends. You’ll be speaking better starting in your first session.
