ESL Program Introduction
The Institute provides customized services to foreign nationals, corporate professionals, medical professionals, and students at their onsite location and virtually in the online meeting center. The school offers the only accent modification program in the Midwest for foreign born medical professionals complete with specialized materials.
The programs are flexible and all begin with a comprehensive speech analysis by a certified accent coach who are experienced speech and hearing professionals. The accent coach will explain the results and customize a program to meet your goals and budget. Past comparisons have shown that students who attend all the appropriate sessions and practice diligently can expect to experience at least a 50% change in their accent or dialect.
The Institute offers advanced training workshops on job interviewing skills, polishing your communication skills, and many other offerings. Check the website for the most current details and how to register for their programs
