“I enjoyed the Accent Reduction course. It has improved my speech, reading and audibility. Before, people complained that they couldn’t hear and understand me. But now the story is different, they can hear and understand me.
I strongly recommend this course to others.” (Fr A Priest, Nigeria)

"This accent reduction course was very useful for me to understand , correct and to improve my knowledge about the English language. I found the correct pronunciation of certain words which would get me stuck in conversations and readings. Now I am confident enough to read and speak more beautifully. Thanks for the great assistance."
(Fr. Josen, Priest, India)
I feel fortunate to complete the Accent Reduction Course designed by Australian English Institute. The 12 week course helped me to gain confidence to preach Sunday sermons and has given me the tools to keep on improving. My instructor was exceptionally good to help me out and I highly recommend this course to those whose mother tongue is other than English.
