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.

My performance appraisal consistently indicated the need for improved communication skills... After the training, I was able to self-correct mispronunciations... and my speech improvements have enabled successful working relationships with other business groups.
"This training was not only for improving my accent and making it understandable for others, but it was to eliminate/minimize the inferiority complex I had, before this course.
I must appreciate that you are extremely knowledgeable on the subject (I remember you demonstrating different accents and I could hear the difference and the way I was sounding before). I must also say that you are a thorough professional, even after the long duration of the course you kept us motivated all the time and managed the session timings impeccably and gave equal opportunity to all of us.
Thanks once again for everything."
