“The experience with Sarah was great. Sarah is a very experienced English language trainer who applies structured approach based on your level and needs to help you improve your problematic areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who do you serve?
We work with business executives, lawyers, and subject matter experts of different language backgrounds and industries. These professionals are advanced speakers of English who communicate regularly in English for their work. They understand that in today’s global workplace, spoken English is a professional skill that allows them to share their ideas and be understood as they intend. A neutral question such as, Are you ready for the meeting? will not be interpreted as I’m so annoyed that we’re having this meeting. Our clients understand that being better understood in spoken English can help them engage with the people they need to reach to efficiently accomplish their professional goals.
Do you offer customized programs?
Yes, we do. Contact us to start the conversation. Our carefully structured programs are designed with our clients’ spoken English and communication needs in mind.
What is the time commitment?
One of the first questions that both team directors and training participants usually ask is, How much time does this type of training require? Programs are typically range from 6-10 weeks. They are designed so that the participants practice for 15-20 (maybe 30) minutes per day (M-F). This everyday practice is important for steady improvement in the speech training process.
If a training participant travels frequently for work, does this disrupt the training momentum?
Not necessarily. Every program includes an online dedicated training space for 24/7 access to the program materials. Marking out the recommended time for any given program helps to maintain the program momentum. In place of meeting in person, we can meet by telephone, teleconference, or videoconference.
Do you help clients only with spoken English? How about written English?
Our area of expertise is spoken English. However, we know of other industry professionals who specialize in business and academic writing. We are happy to help you find a good match for your needs.
Do your instructors hold an advanced degree and have experience with this specialized type of training?
Yes, each instructor has earned a masters in Applied Linguistics-TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Each instructor also has a minimum of eight years of training experience.
How do I get started?
A phone call is a good place to start. If you are a team director or HR professional, we can discuss the next step options. If you are a non-native English-speaking professional, we can start with an informal 20-minute interview to get a sense of your spoken English and professional communication needs. We can then discuss the next step options.
