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 diversity and create more effective communication, collaboration, and 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.
"I used to dread talking on the phone. I was always trying to find ways to write; if I write then the person can read it. Talking on the phone was so awful, but now I have a telephone conversation and nobody asks me to repeat myself. It's really exciting!"
