Ear & Speak’s clients are a diverse group (accountants, IT professionals, builders, salespeople, politicians, diplomats, students, teachers, immigrants, locals, and more), and their needs are equally diverse (English accent reduction, pronunciation correction, elocution lessons, public speaking, customer service, foreign language pronunciation, self-confidence, etc). You can read some of their feedback about training here. What can we help you with?
Training is one-on-one. Face-to-face clients will attend appointments at Ear & Speak’s office in Collins Street, Melbourne CBD. Client-site training can be provided to corporate clients in certain circumstances. We provide tailored, adaptive training, with open and honest feedback. We approach our clients’ needs with analytical skill, and personal and cultural sensitivity. Our focus is on achieving change.
Using our linguistic expertise, we combine elements of elocution, public speaking and accent coaching to develop your skills in English, based on your particular needs. We want to solve the simple things, urgent problems and the hard issues for you. In a straightforward, no-nonsense manner. At Ear & Speak the focus is on the challenges faced by the individual client. Emphasis is placed on:
- continuous analysis of your problems/progress, not a first-session checklist,
- practice as part of everyday routines,
- strategies and exercises to solve your problems.
Supporting the specialist advice given to clients are:
- unique materials, recordings and exercises chosen for your goals and needs,
- the Ear & Speak Client Area website, with tips and resources,
- additional wordlists and recordings prepared specifically for any special problems you encounter.

3 Self-directed accent reduction program online
A unique online solution for clients who cannot get expert face-to-face training: Our Accent Reduction at Home program was developed because of the number of requests we get from people living outside Melbourne, often in small cities/towns, especially from international medical graduates and engineers needing to improve the clarity of their spoken English.
