Case Study

Industry: Global Food Manufacturing

People often asked me to repeat myself on the phone. I realized ARI's program was a perfect blend with the instructor, online classroom, and learning materials. This program is different because it emphasizes practicality and teaches you to use your skills right away.

From Our Clients

"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."
