The Path to Profitability

English is accepted as the global language of business. The ability to speak English is not enough. People from other countries using the melody, rhythm and speech patterns of their primary language will have an accent.  Companies know that excellent communication skills impact the bottom line.  Some businesses pay for Accent Reduction training for their employees.  Contact your manager.  Accent Reduction is the cost of doing business.  Good Business!

Increased Speech Intelligibility

Reducing an accent is for business, personal and social purposes.  Accent reduction does not take away culture or heritage. The goal is to increase speech intelligibility by modifying the accent.  Be understood.
