Testimonials

“I have been extremely happy with CommuniClear Global’s video call training. The lessons are engaging and well-structured with good online materials. I personally believe that they are quite unique and innovative. For me, it has been a big plus that I can attend the training sessions in the office, at home or during business trips, and the technology platform works well. After a few lessons, I saw real significant progresses. Based on these successes, I decided to buy further (coaching) sessions with Sarah at CommuniClear because I would like to ride the momentum and strive for continuous improvements.”

Massimo

Director of New Ventures & Innovation, from Italy

“I’m so glad that I took Sarah’s 8-week (English pronunciation skills) program. After a few weeks following Sarah’s methods and practices, my spoken English has improved so noticeably that my American colleagues whom I work with everyday recognized it. I work in a law firm, so this improvement is invaluable to me. Sarah knows exactly what I should focus on to improve my spoken English and put it in a carefully designed step-by-step program. The results came fast and clear. I definitely recommend this program.”

Thang

Foreign Attorney at Sidley Austin-Chicago, from Vietnam

“Sarah is great at what she does. I was in law school and interviews can get fairly stressful. Sarah not only helped me on my accent but also on the substance of my interviews. Besides being always responsive to and available for my emergency sessions, She has also given me numerous tips on the cultural things in America so I can make conversation flow more naturally, which eventually led to a job offer. I strongly recommend Sarah, especially for international students who are still in the process of interviewing.”

Hansi L.

in Chicago, from China

“Working with Sarah to improve my American English pronunciation was the best decision I ever made. I moved to the U.S. from Poland 12 years ago and tried using a few accent reduction books, but it wasn’t working at all. I recently realized that without help, I would not be able to advance professionally. Thanks to Sarah from CommuniClear Global, my English speaking skills have improved tremendously. Her techniques proved to be very effective and I could see (and hear) the difference very quickly. The program was designed well and although somewhat intense, it fit my work and family schedule perfectly. Sarah’s assignments and feedback were excellent and I was able to apply what she taught me right away. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of CommuniClear Global and Sarah.”

“Sarah is one of the best because of not only her expertise in her area but more her rich experience to customize her programs for speakers with different language backgrounds. She handed me the tools to climb higher in communication skills! Sarah is also very honest and respectful. I strongly recommend her if you need a language expert to improve your speech in English. ”

Isabela

Director, moved to U.S. from Brazil

“Every class session was interesting. This program has helped me a lot. I learned many tips how to speak in English in a way listeners can understand easily. They were eye opening as nobody had ever told me most of those. It’s now easier to talk on the phone because I feel that people now understand me easier. I’m also more confident speaking in my day-to-day life outside of work. Like Drive Thru at McDonalds. ”

“Sarah is a self-directed, highly motivated, innovative instructor and instructional designer.

“The experience with Sarah was great. She is a very experienced English language trainer who applies structured approach based on your level and needs to help you improve your problematic areas. She is very patient and listens well to your needs. She customized the course that matched my pronunciation needs as well as my business needs.

Lungheung

Financial Analyst, moved to U.S. from China

“Sarah, thanks for the training. It is benefiting me in my day-to-day activities. I am feeling more confident while talking to my colleagues in different geographic locations. I am able to understand and clearly communicate without them asking me to repeat what I said. I might need a little more effort, but I feel there can be improvement in future communications. ”

Bhargav

Project Manager, India

“Sarah is a very skillful, patient and flexible instructor. She builds a very good foundation in first couple of lessons for you to reduce your accent if you did not have formal English training like me before. I felt mouth tired when I spoke English and did not know where to pause even though I tried very hard before I took her class. However, Sarah uses her unique method to correct your pronunciation. I don’t feel tired now and immediately know what is wrong if I go back to my old way to speak. I see big improvement in speaking English. That is why I am going to continue working with her. ”

Joni

IT Specialist, moved to U.S. from China

“I strongly recommend Sarah’s course because it is simply the answer to a fundamental need: communicating in English. She taught me pronunciation. Coming to the U.S. as Italian lawyer, I had to improve in a short period of time my pronunciation. This was a big goal to achieve. At the beginning, I did not know how to improve. Then I decided just to follow her advice without being scared of being wrong. So I understood and practiced Sarah’s techniques. Now, I feel much more comfortable and my pronunciation has improved. I now even pay attention to the pronunciation in other foreign people. That helped me a lot both as a student and as a professional for the presentations I delivered in different occasions. I think what Sarah offers is a fundamental tool for foreign students and professionals.”

Sandra

Lawyer, moved to U.S. from Italy

“I was fortunate to have the opportunity working with Sarah on improving my communication skills over last six weeks. The outcome of taking the training course greatly exceeded my expectation. Sarah’s training is unique in the way how it’s structured; how she understands students’ weaknesses; and how she sets up the goals for students and helps them achieve. What fundamentally makes Sarah’s courses unique is as Sarah understands and says: “I’m not to help you get rid of your accents, but to help you be better understood when speaking English.” I believe (this) is the most fundamental, practical and crucial thing for non-native English speakers. So I would like to recommend you Sarah’s training courses if you wish to further improve your communication skills (in English).”

“I just listened to your recorded assessment of Mr. —-. I really love how you are running the calls, how you answered his questions about pronunciation. Thanks so much for all of your support in running these assessments. ”

Senior Manager

Corporate Language and Intercultural Training Firm, Chicago

“Sarah was assigned to bridge the communication gap between my colleagues from India and other sites. From the very first telephone conversation (initial assessment) that she had with us, she understood what was needed and the course she designed was proof of that. The course and the follow-up assignments really made me aware of my communication/ speaking skills and the gaps that required improvement. She was very supportive and helpful during her classes. Her honest feedback played an important role in improving my communication and I personally feel that she did an excellent job as our instructor and I thank her for that. ”

Samir

“Listening to your recording is like being in actual class. Very exciting experience! Now I’m monitoring my own speaking. I strongly want to improve my pronunciation as soon as possible. Thank you so much. ”

Graduate Student, South Korea

“Sarah is a great English teacher… With her efficient techniques, my speaking and listening abilities are being gradually improved. I feel very excited when I see this progress. Thank you very much, Sarah! ”

Guihua

Graduate Student, in U.S. from China

“As a graduate student hailing from India, I would definitely say that working with Sarah has helped me in improving my pronunciation skills and making it understandable to the American audience. She comments on my recording almost instantaneously and highlights the parts where I should pay more attention to. The repeated exercises and her feedback has helped me in reducing the pace of my speech (I tend to speak too fast :)) and bettering my enunciation. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend Sarah to anyone who would like to better their English communication skills.”

Graduate Student, in U.S. from India

“In a period of staff turnaround, Sarah played a big part in getting the International Teaching Assistants (ITA) program of new hires (program director and two MA-TESOL teaching assistants) on board in Fall 2012. She shared her expertise and experience while training her colleagues in the assessment procedures and ESL 401 curriculum. She mentored the first year MA-TESOL teaching assistant while teaching ESL 401; took a lead role in staff meetings; shared her expertise in teaching English pronunciation; created materials; designed two new breakout sessions for orientation; developed a new English pronunciation-skills workshop for ITAs; and created a new curriculum for Fall 2013. We will miss her as she launches her company, CommuniClear Global, Inc (CCG). I anticipate that what CCG offers its clients will be consistently carried out with the same intelligence, integrity, passion, and diligence. ”

Vandana Loomba-Loebel

ITA Program Director, University of Illinois at Chicago

“I much appreciated Sarah’s willingness to take on a consultant and teacher-training role in our International Teaching Assistants (ITA) program as it moved to the Graduate College this past year (2012/2013). She provided valuable insights from her many years of experience teaching in this program. There is clearly a need for the services of the ITA program on campus, and we are excited to support some of the current changes to expand the ITA program that Sarah and the current program director suggested. I wish Sarah the best of luck as she continues forward with CommuniClear Global, Inc.”

Dr. Karen Colley

Professor and Dean of the Graduate College, University of Illinois at Chicago

“You did a fantastic job with us. You have a lot of patience and you listen to us. How you taught us I can now understand the problem so I can correct when I need to–if someone doesn’t understand me. You had good suggestions. This was very tremendous for us.”

Alagumurugan A.

Pharmacist, India

“Dear Sarah. Thank you so much for all your help and support. Your support, academic knowledge, feedback, patience and respect help me to feel more confident and secure about myself and make the learning process easier.”

Prospective Teacher, moved to U.S. from Guatemala

“Thanks, Sarah! This course has created awareness and made me conscious about how is speaking in clear English. ”

Sivakumar

Research Scientist, India

“ I was excited to hear that Sarah is offering her services to students abroad. She has always had a passion in teaching English pronunciation and helping students with their English speaking skills. As a language teacher in Brazil, I’m aware that many students don’t realize how important pronunciation is when communicating in English. I’m also aware that not many teachers work with pronunciation because they don’t know how. Sarah specializes in this, and it seems that she is working with this in an innovative way. She uses technology so that it is interesting and practical for the student. ”
