In the United States today, there are over 23 million non-native English speakers in the workforce. At ARI, we’re focused on helping you leverage this diversity into better communication and more innovative solutions.
From NATO to Fortune 100 companies, ARI has a proven track record of client satisfaction. Our highly trained instructors - certified linguists and speech pathologists - use a customized, multi-faceted approach to improve workplace communication. Our goal isn't to remove accented speech from the workplace, but to teach a diverse, multi-lingual workforce how to communicate confidently and effectively.
We also understand that effective communication involves the listener as much as the speaker. Our programs give people new skills to help them understand and communicate more effectively with clients and colleagues.

I began to work in the US, and I realized people couldn't understand me because of my pronunciation... I knew the program was a success when I had a conversation with the VP of my company shortly after training ended. We were discussing critical approaches our company is taking and he commented on how much easier it was to understand me.
"I didn't know I had a problem... I couldn't do an R or an L --- not at all. Now I can make these sounds every time."
