How’s Our Program Work?

At Speaking Successfully we believe that, regardless of how long you’ve been speaking English or what country you’re from, you can significantly modify or soften your accent. Regardless of your skill level, program length or class size, all our courses include three essential components: a thorough assessment, professional training and lots of practice.

Our Assessment

Our programs begin with a thorough assessment of your speech production skills. We’ll determine exactly how your pronunciation varies from standard American English. We will also discover which specific areas we’ll need to concentrate on the most. This assessment also helps us determine the number of sessions required.

Our Business Communication Specialist begins with an evaluation of your particular accent and current English skills, your workplace and personal requirements and your accent modification goals. We’ll assess your use of body movements, facial gestures, related body language and cultural knowledge. Then we’ll design a program tailored to your personal and professional needs.

Your Training Program

All your in accent work is done with a nationally certified speech pathologist. Depending on your specific needs, instruction will specifically address pronunciation, intonation and inflection, pitch, voice projection, speaking rate, grammar and total word production.

When you’ve learned the sounds and principles of American English, you'll have the tools to master even the most specialized, technical or scientific terminology. You'll gain the confidence in your conversational skills to tackle group discussions and formal presentations.

Our programs are flexible, with training schedules designed to fit the busiest company or executive. Our other programs range from 4 to 7 to 14 hours in length with a variety of manageable schedules. We believe sustained learning occurs over time with consistent input and support.

Our programs also incorporate follow-up coaching. You will see successful results from this unique aspect. This added value may just be the incentive you or your employees need to maintain success!

Lots of Practice

To soften or modify an accent takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It cannot be done in our trainings alone. The professionals at Speaking Successfully will always provide you additional carryover practice work. Typically, there's 30-60 minutes of practice work each day.

You'll use a CD-ROM or personal practice tapes to apply your new speaking skills in everyday life. This program will also incorporate specialized practice materials as needed.

When you’ve completed your ‘5 Steps to Speaking Successfully’ program, your speech will be assessed again. The results will be compared to your initial testing so you can see exactly how much progress you’ve made.
