    We Offer Two Accent Reduction Classes to Meet the Needs of Your Call Center

    4-Sessions: Quick English Clarity for Call Center and Customer Service Work Class

    By the conclusion of these classes, callers will be able to:

    • Speak with American Intonation, the cultural and business communication melody pattern required for English. Greater clarity will be observed with team members in about three weeks. Speaking with clean American Intonation is the most important skill for the class to sound clear and speak in the American cultural and business style.
    • Elimination of cultural accented habits easily detected on a phone call and major contributor to unclear English and frustration for customers and clients. Examples include speaking too fast, choppy, forceful, or monotone speaking patterns.

    8-Sessions: Mini Accent Reduction and Neutralization Class

    By the conclusion of these classes, callers will be able to:

    • Learn everything from the 4-session class, plus:
    • Learn the top missing consonant sounds which can include: /th/, /ing/, /f/, /v/, /w/, and /r/ or target some vowel sounds. Identification of sounds will be based on the callers in the class. Pronouncing the most common spoken sounds in American English will significantly improve the quality and clarity of the call.
    • Customer service strategies to ensure a successful call.

    Look What Former Clients Say about Working with Us!

    “I have never heard of optimal pitch and I spoke with a lot of up-tones. My speech did not sound confident or intelligent. I speak and sound very different now. I appreciated that Liz is a speech-language pathologist. I know how to be more clear, effective and confident at work. I want to get a promotion and be seen now in the workplace. Communication and confidence go together and now feel and sound confident.”

    - Courtney

    “I communicate to 25 different people a day. People from Ganda are known for choppy speech. We want to talk fast. I was on the phone as a project manager with a client and he said he just can’t understand me and we should call it a day. Then I met Liz and she taught me the Staircase and that changed everything, right away. Now I speak clearly and with confidence. This will help me as a project manager. Thank you Liz!”

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When is it time to consider a training class for your team?

    Customers are frustrated due to not understanding the employees’ English. As a result, business is not moving forward, or calls are being escalated to management. 

    How does accent reduction customer service training compare to an onsite training?

    We enjoy our onsite training classes, however, that is not always feasible in terms of cost or having employees removed from the floor to receive training. When that is the case, online training is the best option. All areas of speaking with clear English are presented. Every lesson has an instructional video and printed exercises, and auditory files are available to listen to and repeat American English words and sentences.

    Why is correct American English important for customer service phone work?

    Within seconds a caller will immediately recognize an accent. If the English being spoken is unclear, the customer may immediately get frustrated that their needs will go unmet, or the call will take longer than usual to complete due to the English barrier.

    Will other areas of customer service be included?

    Absolutely! Our longer program allows for deeper customer service training. Our programs are custom designed to meet the unique needs of every company. If you have recorded calls, we are happy to include them in the training.
