Corporate Programs – Group Accent Reduction

Many organizations have groups of people who perform specific jobs in which they interact with American-English speakers, such as call-center agents, programmers and software engineers, back-office personnel and health care professionals. ALTA’s Group Accent Reduction Programs are designed for these situations.

Group Size

Group sizes range from 2 to 20 if training is delivered face-to-face and up to three participants, if training is delivered live online. Face-to-face larger groups can be accommodated but reduce the amount of teacher-student interaction that each participant experiences.

Program Length

Depending on the size of the group class, face-to-face group programs should be scheduled for 5 to 10 hours with the option for the participants to take some individual live online or telephone sessions with a trainer. Other arrangements may be recommended, depending on each particular situation.

Program Locations

  • U.S. – Programs are available at your location or at our training center in Atlanta, Georgia.
  • Outside the U.S. – Programs are available at your location.
  • Live Online – Live Online Group Programs are also available.

Group Composition

The group members should all come from the same first-language group, for example, all should be Hindi speakers or Mandarin speakers, etc.
