Global Speech offers customized accent modification solutions to help you improve your pronunciation of spoken American English. Our programs are designed to teach you which areas of your speech are important to change and the ways in which you can make these changes. The ultimate goal is to replace your existing American English speech patterns with a more fluent and intelligible style of speech.
Each training program begins with a personal speech analysis of the client’s speech. This analysis reveals exactly how your pronunciation varies from standard American English and identifies specific areas for concentration. These findings then assist in determining whether a group or individual course is more appropriate, as well as the number of sessions required.
Sample Programs Include:
Intensive 3 Day Seminar
7 Week Private Program
13 Week Group Course
One-to-One Executive Programs
Individual Video Web Conferencing or Tele-Class Formats
Programs are typically offered at the client’s workplace, or via teleclass and web conferencing formats. Our trainers offer seminars and courses on-site to clients worldwide and will accommodate your time and location requirements. All programs are individually customized, and pricing varies based on the client’s need.
The Global Speech Solution
Global Speech programs are based on the Compton P-ESL Method, a proven research based program for modifying a foreign accent in order to be better understood in English. Following the initial speech analysis, a Global Speech professional teaches the client appropriate speech modification techniques, as well as the basic sounds and principles of American English. The client learns to discriminate sounds, with special emphasis placed on:
Complete word production
Our programs can be customized to include industry specific vocabulary, as well as a variety of practice modules and interactive tools.
To modify an accent takes hard work and dedication. To achieve the greatest improvement possible, clients must practice outside of the training environment using the provided accent modification training materials. While no two clients are alike, clients who follow the recommended program will experience dramatic and measurable results.
Once our client’s have completed the recommended program, a final speech analysis will be conducted. The result of this analysis is then compared to the initial data obtained so the extent of the client’s improvement can be determined. Past comparisons have shown that clients who attend all of the appropriate sessions and practice diligently can expect to experience at least 50% change in their accent or dialect.
