In today's global workplace, clear communication allows people to connect better and save time in meetings..

During this 6-week group training, you will acquire the global English-clear speech skills you need to communicate more effectively. As a business leader or subject expert, you want your talent, not your accent, to take center stage. There's a difference between being kinda, sorta understood and having your audience fully engaged and understanding you each step of the way. Being "kinda" understood means that you get by in meetings and presentations. Being "really" understood means greater effectiveness, quicker work, and better connections.

During this 6-week speech training, you'll learn...

  • Ways to boost your  vocal presence
  • A variety of practice techniques to help you produce a clear, controlled, & confident sound
  • How English rhythm differs from that of your first or other first language, and why this matters
  • The priority individual sounds that you want to master to eliminate critical misunderstandings (not all sounds are equal!)
  • Stress & intonation patterns in neutral speech (American English)
  • How to self monitor your speech so that you develop a productive daily practice routine.
  • A step-by-step plan with ongoing expert guidance.

Clear Speech Success Accelerator

It's true: 6 weeks is not a lot of time. Learning how to adjust your spoken English in real-time spontaneous speech takes time. This requires an understanding of the moving parts of speech (vocal presence, sounds, & rhythm) along with a daily, or near daily, practice routine and a bit of ear training.  

There are plenty of Accent Reduction books & online self-study programs with MP4 audio files. But is this enough? How easy is it to maintain a regular practice routine? How sure are you that you're correctly applying what you learn to your spoken English?

We're here to help speed up the speech training process for you. Our role is to provide you the linguistic knowledge, online tools, and live community support to help you get better understood fast.

"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... Sarah's assignments and feedback were excellent and I was able to apply what she taught me right away!-Malgorzata, Lawyer, moved to U.S. from Poland
