Maybe you feel discouraged by the constant need to repeat yourself. Perhaps you avoid giving your input during team meetings because you anticipate being misunderstood. Or maybe you’re frustrated by the amount of time you spend seeking clarification from someone whose first language isn't English.
Communication Metrics for Entering vs. Graduating ARI Students
- Entering Students: Due to critical speech errors, typical participants entering Accents International's training programs need to repeat themselves 15-20 times per workday.
- Graduating Students: Graduates of Accents International's accent reduction program see more than a 70% reduction in critical speech errors.
Improving Communication, Improving Productivity
For both the speaker and the listener, the fear of misunderstandings can halt the flow of information and create serious barriers to productivity. As an Accents International student, you will learn how to proactively foster a more productive work environment through better communication.
Accent Reduction Training
As a speaker in our accent reduction program, you'll gain confidence in knowing that when you give voice to your ideas and opinions, people will focus on what you are saying and not how you are saying it.
Accent Comprehension Training
As a listener undertaking an accent comprehension course, you’ll learn to work more effectively with coworkers and clients regardless of their background or native language. Removing these communication barriers will facilitate the flow of information, allowing both you and your teammates to collaborate and make better use of time and resources.
