After a few weeks following Sarah’s methods and practices, my spoken English improved so noticeably that my American colleagues whom I work with everyday recognized it. 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

What is the difference between your two programs "Clear Speech Success Accelerator" and "Clear Speech Success Mastery"?
"Clear Speech Success Accelerator" is a 30-day intensive program designed to help you get understood fast. We focus our attention on informational speech. That is, speech where your primary goal is to share information with more ease and efficiency. If English is your first other language, this program may be all you need. "Clear Speech Success Mastery" is a deep-dive program. This includes 8 weeks of intensive training/coaching and 6 monthly follow-up group coaching calls. Participants have a variety of targeted practice opportunities, such as mini-presentations, role play interviews, and small group meeting tasks.
Is the goal of this program to modify or reduce my accent?
Our overall objective is to help you communicate more effectively in spoken English with speakers of different language backgrounds. We address and work with specific speech features of the English sound system (i.e., sounds & rhythm) so that you are able to adjust your spoken English or accent with relative ease and efficiency.
How would you describe your training approach
Our carefully-structured spoken-English communication training programs serve both the analytical learner who sees value in breaking down the English sound system to better understand how it works and how it is different from their first (or second or third) language AND the kinesthetic learner who best absorbs this type of linguistic training via physical movement and real-life practice tasks, such public speaking, mock interviews, and spontaneous conversations.
