Speaking in English is not simply writing spoken out loud. Speaking and writing in English are very different skills that use a completely different set of rules. If you want to increase your ability to speak English quickly or are looking for American accent training, accent reduction, or accent modification, this class is for you. This class will teach you how to speak American English like native speakers, sound fully bilingual, and improve your ability to understand English.

"After speaking English for such a long time, I finally reached the goal! Now I realize, why people didn't understand me."
With a new understanding of how talking in English really works, students will be able to get better jobs, speak publicly and improve communication. At the end of each course, we match students with American native English speaker volunteers so they can continue practicing and improving at no additional cost. We are the only ESL course in Houston that matches you with an American native speaker practice partner at the end of the course. If you cannot attend classes because of your schedule, we also offer private 1-to-1 training at a reasonable price.

What Teachers Are Saying About This Method
"My students were amazed with their results compared to traditional methods. "Why didn’t anyone tell me this before?", they cried. All they wanted was to be understood when they talk, express themselves in their new country, to make friends, and to have a voice. My students learned how English speaking really works, and how to be understood by and communicate with native speakers. Gone were their concerns about having an accent once they learned the tools of speaking English. Then they went out in the world, volunteered in their communities, got jobs and made friends. The world became their classroom. There was no conversation they couldn’t manage, and no idea they couldn’t express."
- Professor of English Judy Thompson, Sheridan College
